Mac n Cheese, something I must be really picky about because I've tried so many recipes and have only found about 2 that I will ever make again. I really do enjoy some good mac n cheese. I'm so glad this recipe worked out because I was really close to giving up on making my own. This is pretty easy to make and just your standard mac and cheese but it's good! Very good. I wish I had some right now. I never really thought I liked adding breadcrumbs to my mac and cheese but I like it here. Adds a nice crunch, and it's not overpowering. Okay, on to the recipe! I hope you enjoy it just as much as I did.
I made this in these cute little new pots my sister bought me for my wedding! Thanks sis.
