Makeover Creamy Mac & Cheese
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 25 min.
Made it last night for company and picky toddlers and it was a huge success! Need to play around with the topping and hubby requested some bacon bits mixed in, but definitely a new favorite that was super easy to make!
I made this tonight for my grandchildren. We really enjoyed it. I topped it with a little Parmesan cheese with the onions and omitted the bread crumbs. I will make this again.
This was really good. I omitted the breadcrumb topping....and added crumbled bacon instead. I guess I sort of cancelled out the "lighter on calories" part...oops. The texture was really nice and creamy, which surprised me, for a lower fat version.
This was ok. We needed more of a cheesy flavor. I omitted the topping just for times sake as we were running behind. I probably wouldn't make this one again because there are better recipes for this out there.
This Mac & Cheese had very little cheese flavor, consequently it had a starchy flour taste. Will not make again.
I admit I was skeptical about a lower-fat mac & cheese but this recipe was really good and satisfying. The fam really enjoyed it.
So easy and tasty. Had to use my old stand by tho. Velveeta mixed with sharp regular sharp cheese. Yummy !
My family and I enjoyed this recipe very much! My son especially who loves mac n'cheese. I've been on a hunt for the best recipe I can find and so far out of all the ones I've made this is our favorite! I did use full fat ingredients and whole wheat past. I know this recipe calls for reduced fat ingredients but I don't like to cook with reduced fat.
My granddaughter loves this, she's the mac and cheese beast in the family. (I can't stand the stuff myself) She doesn't care at all for the "macaroni/milk/cheese" version below, it's not creamy and has a different texture. This is a bit healthier and still creamy and good. She also likes the topping, it gives a nice different texture, crunchy AND creamy.
Cheese and mac is my ultimate comfort food, so finding one that has less fat is great. A tasty dish that is easy to make and will be served often in our household.
