This is a fabulous dish!!!! A friend has made this for our church crock pot luncheons many times and there is NEVER any left. I got only a tablespoon last time it was served. It was delicious. Can't wait to make to make it for my family. Thank you Paula for a delicious mac and cheese. God Bless.

Does this dish really serve 12? I am adding smoked sausage and making it a main dish for 12 -mostly adults. Do I need to double it?

I made this for the first time last Christmas, and will be making it again for this Easter. I also shredded my own cheese and left out the eggs...I'm not fond of eggs and I was afraid it would have an eggy flavor if I used them. I also was afraid the pasta would end up mushy and overcooked...but it was perfect! Everyone loved it, including the picky eaters. I highly recommend this recipe.

This mac and cheese is just as good as I hoped it would be. It doesn't, however, need to cook for the full three hours. Can't wait to make it again. Will be a family favorite for years to come I am sure. Thanks!

I have made this macaroni and cheese again and again. A family favorite when everyone gets together for a meal. I leave out the eggs, since I don't find them necessary, and it somehow makes the cheese a little gritty tasting; however, the whole milk is important. I have added 2 packages of bacon pieces (found in salad section of most food stores) sprinkled on the top. I bake mine in a casserole dish for 20-30 minutes @ 350. It turns out fabulous every time! My son in college expects this dish every time he comes home, warms up leftovers for next day or two. Still tastes great! YES, I always double the recipe and it still comes out great...but I would not double the eggs, 3 is a lot, 6 would be out of the question!

Great taste! But - I shredded my own cheese like other people suggested instead of bagged cheese, and the eggs still curdled! I would leave out the eggs completely next time. Also, I don't see why this needs to cook for 3 hours in the crock pot since everything is already cooked. I would cook on low for one hour and then warm.
