Reviews for Macaroni and Cheese for Two
"Does the egg make the macaroni and cheese thick? Also if I use the preshredded cheese do I use the whole 8 oz bag or do I use only half?"
"This was very good. I enjoyed it. My husband and kids are picky so they didn't try it. I thought the flavor was very rich and cheesy. I did think it was a little on the salty side. If I make this again I will cut the salt in half."
"it was good"
"Skipped the egg and added some mild cheddar in with the sharp. Very good mac & cheese recipe!!"
"Very good, very rich! I only used 1/2 tablespoon of butter and it was more than enough."
"This was a yummy dish and very easy to make! I have a five year old and she loves her macaroni. I loved that it was basic and you have the ability to really add anything to it to create something new or jazz it up if you are in the mood! Fantastic job!"
"So easy and so good!"
"I love this recipe! I usually double it so we can have leftovers. I omit the butter because it seems to make it too greasy and really doesn't add any flavor. I also usually add panko breadcrumbs before baking. This is my new go-to mac and cheese recipe. It is super quick and easy and tastes amazing!"
"Simple, short and to the point. But with 27 g of fat, it is a heart attack waiting to happen! I like cheese but I also want to live a long and healthy life. I cut cheese in half and use Egg-Beaters. It is still cheesey just not at creamy and tastes just as great!"
"I would definitely not make again. Not creamy; infact, it appeared curdled."
"Although the serving size of this recipe is great it did not meet my expectations. I followed the recipe carefully but my macaroni was dry and greasy."
"My boyfriend helped make dinner and this was his job. He didn't know whether it meant to cook 1 1/2 cups of noodles and use amount or measure 1 1/2 cups of the cooked noodles. He added extra cheese, but it still needed more. A good recipe but we may need to tweak it more!"
"This is a great recipe! It can easily be doubled or triped depending on the volume of company. I also increased the amount of butter to about 1 1/2 TBS and extra cheese on top. Very yummy!"
"I increased the butter to 1 1/2 TBS. After baking, I added additional shredded cheese to the top and returned it to the oven to melt. This recipe was very good. Thanks for sharing."
"I like the fact that the recipe is small and easy. I can't see eating this many calories over and over again so this one is right up my alley.Gail"
"Shredded cheese is measured like a dry ingredient if you shredd 4 oz of cheese it will fill up a one cup measuring cup. When you buy pre shredded cheese in the grogery store an 8 oz package contains 2 cups."
"Question: 1 cup = 8 oz. the Mac & Cheese for two states...1 cup (4oz) sharp cheese. Which is it a cup or a half cup?"
