I really hope it thickens as I am bringing it to a pot luck dinner with my coworkers.
The sauce tasted good though! I think you should revise this recipe a little. Nothing in this recipe makes mention of anything thickening. I agree savanna , I made this recipe yesterday Tue 23rd July The sauce was too thin , when transferring to a baking dish I had to remove some sauce. Having said that, I think I left mine in the oven too long as the cheese had turned to a scrambled egg like texture, it was still delicious though! My tweeks for next time will be to use less milk or use corn flour corn starch , to thicken up the sauce , oh and only bake for 30mins.
Hi, I love your recipes. Mac and cheese is my comfort food. I grew up on mac and cheese and the way my mom made it was as follows: She used cheddar cheese, macaroni and tomatoes. I believe tomatoes as it gave it flavor so I and my whole family have been making it like she made it for years.
If there was ever any left over we fried it and I absolutely loved it that way. Just saying. Ok, here I am again! Ok, I am psyched to make this recipe. The quintessential baked macaroni all the people make in the south! I will write to you when I make it for our Easter family gathering. Wish me luck!!! I think the key is shredding your own cheese in baked Mac and Cheese.
Smoked mozzarella sounds amazing! Shredding your own really does make a difference. So glad you all enjoyed it. I cooked my bechamel for at least 10 minutes, but stopped before it thickened properly even though I really knew better because I was unfamiliar with using an egg to thicken and thought it may have been intentional. What a waste of cheese and time. This baked Mac and Cheese recipe was delicious!!! It was very similar to my own recipe except I wanted to try something different this year.
My recipe only uses salt, pepper, ground mustard and sharp cheddar and jack cheeses but the addition of the cayenne pepper, paprika and mozzarella cheese really deepened the flavor. Oh my my my, scrumptious! This is now my new way of making baked Mac and cheese!
It would be a little thicker but still taste amazing. I made and tasted this MAC and Cheese and only deviated by adding a little garlic powder and a squeeze of mustard and it was awesome!!
Frequently Asked Questions about Baked Mac and Cheese:
The flavor and everything Sabrina said as far as amount to use was on point. The sauce was amazing. I appreciate you taking the time to come back and letting me know. I try to make it the same day so keeps the noodles from soaking in all the liquid but I understand having to juggle many dishes, especially during the holidays. You could probably prep it the day before and bake it the next day. Save topping it with cheese until right before baking.
I followed this recipe exactly as it reads and I have to say this is the best Mac n cheese ever!!!! I had to drain a good amount of sauce. Hoping it will thicken after it cools. Made this and it was amazing! Very creamy and perfect.
Didnt have mozzarella so threw in some Parmesan and it was still great. Thanks for a great recipe. Saving this one for sure.? I made this last night for my family and it was way too spicy! Any ideas for how to tame the spice after cooking? Oh, no, the cayenne overpowered it for you?

I try to play it pretty safe with heat levels but I know people have different tolerances for spice. Reheat it with some cream or whole milk and cheese and stir until its the right consistency. My apologies for the trouble. First time making this recipe and I doubled it! Well most things.
I used only 6 cups of milk for the bechamel and subbed 6oz of the sharp cheddar for extra sharp because I like a saltier Mac. It turned out delicious! I ended up cooking mine for about 15 minutes on medium heat whisking constantly until it was thick and creamy. Overall this is a great traditional tasting mac and cheese, I have no doubts it will charm the bbq crowd I am bringing it to! I think next time I will add maple bacon to it! I am literally making this right now! My hope is that it acts just like a thickener too.
Thanks for the delicious recipe!
Baked Macaroni and Cheese
Question: when I use a bechamel I always cook the flour, butter, and milk mixture for at least 15 minutes or until it thickens. Your recipe calls for 5 minutes. At this point, should the mixture be thickened or do we just stay with the 5 minutes and go from there? I think I am going to try this and just double the recipe! Does this recipe qualify? Good luck! I tried this and ended up with a crazy amount of the sauce. I ended up leaving most out. What did I do wrong? I put the 6 cups of milk and it was just way too much!
Did you use the same amount of pasta and the same size pan?
What to Eat This Week
I had this same problem — doubled this recipe, so I used 12 cups of milk. Ended up pulling 4 cups of the sauce out before cooking because the noodles were drowning in it. This is a really good recipe, especially for those that love cheesy goodness. I added a pinch more mustard and cayenne pepper. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Tasty Kitchen Lodge Tours!
