    A truly great recipe for the Mac and Cheese. I have not seen better that this one, It should be rating a 5 not a 4.5.

    With all these amazing recipes, I can forget about my diet ;) I have never been to Pirates House Restaurant and if they prepared mac n' cheese like this, then it's a good thing I never ate there. They'd be rolling me out LOL
    HIGH 5 all the way to the kitchen!!!

    Yep, if it's got eggs, it's grandma-macaroni! A very luxurious version, though...

    The sharp cheddar will be fine; I would use a little cream to tone it down. Please do not use the powder. It will be just fine~trust me.

    I have everything in-house to make this with the exception of mild cheddar. I have only sharp cheddar. Believe me, Victoria, for this recipe, I wish I had a mild cheddar, because I know you don't post anything you haven't tried more than one way. I feel another Frankenstein-type of experience coming up for me. I do have some good-quality cheddar cheese powder that may help mellow the flavor of the sharp cheddar. I dunno... I think I'm going to let my daughter make the call on this one; make it with what we have and do our best, or wait (I say we go for it)

    Thank You -- I love the conundrum I'm finding myself in over this lol

    Big Smile,
    Ray

    PS -- I've never made macaroni and cheese from scratch with the exception of pouring Mornay sauce over noodles... don't tell anyone my secret ;-)
