    Question: The ingredient list says: "2 cups Kerrygold shredded mild cheddar cheese" twice. Is this correct? Do I use 4 cups of shredded mild cheddar cheese? The recipe is called Triple-Cheese Macaroni so I'm just a bit confused as to why there's just two types of cheese listed: Velveeta and shredded mild cheddar cheese. Any insight would be appreciated. Thank you.

    Mac and cheese is my youngest grandson's favorite dish as well as mine. So when I prepare this we are two very happy people, but the rest of the family enjoys it also. I do not put the mustard in the recipe though.

    Very good. Husband won't eat .mustard so replaced with a few sprinkles of cayenne pepper. Basic Mac and cheese, we loved it.

    This is our favorite baked macaroni and cheese recipe (sshhh my husband says it's better than his Southern mother's!). I have made it at least a dozen times but never have used the whole 2 tbls of mustard listed, I always figured that was a misprint for 2 tsp, so that's how much I use. Can't wait to make it again for Christmas dinner!

    Very good recipe, and everyone loved it when I made it on Memorial Day. No leftovers! I didn't care for the mustard taste though, so will probably leave that out next time.

    So disappointing after the great reviews. It was decidedly dry, plus dull in flavour (apart from the rather odd tang of mustard). I felt like I'd wasted all that cheese.

    Great!. I read some of the reviews before making this and they commented about how much it makes. I halved the recipe and it made enough for 4 to 6 servings. This definitely a keeper
