    Yummy, yummy, yummy! I haven’t had mac and cheese since I ate it at the CIA in New York a few years ago. (imagine!) This reminds me of their dish a lot. I’m going to try it this weekend. I’ve been craving mac and cheese for ages.

    This recipe is so good ! Do you think you could do it in a crock pot?

    You could try it in the crockpot but you would want to watch the noodles so that they don’t become mushy!

    This is soooo awesome. I adore mac and cheese, and this just became my new fave recipe. I usually never follow recipes exactly, but I did with this one. I wouldn’t change a thing. Thanks!!

    Hey Katie – it makes about 4 servings as a side and 2 for a main dish.

    Oh my gosh. A new favorite. My tummy loves you but my thighs resent you just a bit. ; )

    Haha I love it! Don’t worry my thighs hated me too.

    This is a keeper! I like the recipe, except for the unfortunate use of the word ‘crack’ in the title. I will call it “Crazy Good Mac & Cheese.”

    I tried making this the other day – seriously, BEST MAC AND CHEESE EVER. it was amazing. I made it without bacon because I’m vegetarian, and it was still amazing. Only bad thing – now I c an never have another mac and cheese again because I know how good it can really taste 🙂

    Hey Hailey! I am so glad that you enjoyed the recipe! It has definitely been a favorite of ours.

    I made myself this recipe for dinner tonight and it is truly delicious. I know you said it isn’t exactly a healthy but I substituted some ingredients and shed nearly 140 cals per serving and over 30g of fat! Just little things like using light cream cheese, skim milk, turkey bacon, and light cheddar cheese really make a difference, and it still tastes so freakin’ delicious!

    Looks great, but only 4 oz of macaroni for all that cheese? That is a quarter of a box? That will feed 4? Most mac and cheese recipes call for a lot more macaroni. Was that a misprint?

    Hey Glenn,

    Yes it’s only 4 oz. of noodles covered in a lot of cheese. It’s been over a year since I made the dish but it was more like a side serving for 2-3 people. Definitely worth it though.

    Wow!!! I just made this, and it was sooooo good. I omitted the bacon and used light cream cheese to save a few calories, and it was still the best mac n’ cheese I’ve ever had. Amazing!!!

    woowwww, One more different and mouthwatering dish. I always search for different types of food. “Macaroni with Cheddar cheese” sounds good and i will try it at home.
