This recipe was absolute rubbish. The final result looked like macaroni with cheesy scrambled eggs. I was so disappointed. I wanted to dump it all in the garbage. The strangest thing was that it actually had great flavor, so I'll give it that. Despite that, I will not be making this strange concoction ever again.

While melting the butter I added 1/2 onion diced and 4 oz. chopped green chilies. Everyone loved this recipe.

I gave this recipe 2 stars only because it had decent flavor. Other than that I would say this is definitely more of egg dish than anything. It was not creamy and when I took it out of the oven and stirred it I immediately was disappointed and started to look for a last minute ditch to make for my family. I will not be making this egg and noodle cheese dish again.

This tasted pretty good, but both my husband and myself were violently ill after eating it. I don't know if it was bad eggs, cheese, milk, or the combination of ingredients that didn't agree with us. I don't intend to find out by making it again...lol

I will try this again; however, because I added some flour as was suggested by a reviewer, it was very dense - not creamy at all. Next time I will not use flour, and possibly will use fewer eggs as another suggested? I love buttermilk, so I want this to be my go-to recipe for mac 'n cheese!

I love this recipe, but I made some major modifications to it. I'd never used more than 1 egg in any mac and cheese recipe before and the macaroni/egg ratio seemed low so I doubled the macaroni. Also, I love caramelized onions in mac and cheese along with panko bread crumbs so I added both. I also cut out a quarter the amount of butter and voila! Best ever!

I agree that this is a custard-like recipe. However, it has great flavor if you use a nice sharp cheddar cheese.

easy to make, more like a custard/souffle than traditional mac 'n' cheese. very rich so a little goes a long way.

I grew up on baked mac-n-cheese, so when I ran across this recipe I was excited. It did not disappoint.
