    This recipe sounds great going to give it a try next weekend. I'm a bit confused on the macaroni measures. I take it as 2 cups before boil. Please let me know if that is right. If it's after cooking would you know the quantity?

    Thanks

    Made 4 batches this past weekend for a small little BBQ and people completely raved about it.  Ended up going through 6 half pans!

    Sqwib,

    I gave this recipe a try for a pot luck picnic.  It is great, good cheesy taste, creamy smooth. 

    Its definitely going in my recipe book!

    Thanks for sharing!

     I am tickled pink that many folks are enjoying this recipe.
     
  13. Sqwib,

    Gonna try your recipe for Christmas with smoked baby backs, I'm feeding 23 people, how many batches do you recommend? We are big eaters up here in northern Wisconi!

    Well... mac and cheese is a side so I would say two trays would be fine, I would not make too much it don't freeze well IIRC.

    Maybe some others such as  Demosthenes9 who went thru 6 half pans, will chime in.

    Please take some pics and post back here with your results or link to your post, good luck and enjoy!
     
  15. Awesome thank you!! Merry Christmas
     
  16. Making this again since everyone enjoyed it last Christmas

    .

    I'll add the finished pic later.

    And here it is after a couple hours. Can't wait to dig in.

  18. Forgot to mention we fed 23 adults and 8 children, two pans were the correct amount when using as a side!

    Awesome.
    That's great and very useful information.

    I think the reason the mac n' cheese goes a bit further than most is that it is very rich.
