  1. Oh Amy! You have outdone yourself with this one!! Now all I can think about is making this!! It looks fantastic! I bet this would taste amazing in a bowl of cornbread, BBQ pulled pork and this! If I’d even get that far! This is perfect on its own! Thank you!

  2. Can’t wait to try this! This is a mac & cheese loving household. Only problem is my hubby is anti-Velveeta and he’s doing all the grocery shopping during the pandemic (I’m a little nervous about it). Soooo… It’ll have to wait until I can do the shopping and be sneaky about it. hehe!!

  3. That is one fabulous Mac and cheese. I just made it tonight and it’s delicious. Folks you got to make this recipe.

  4. I will try this again. This is a great recipe that makes a large pan of Mac and cheese that is very filling and could feed a large group. Lots of different cheeses go into this.
