  1. MISS LADY!!!!!!!!
    I forgot to post how amazing this was!!! I did it for Thanksgiving last year and I got COMPLIMENTS. THANK YOU! NEVER doing Mac and cheese without havarti cheese! I've been upgraded!!! lol

  2. GIRL. This mac and cheese was BOMB!!! I highly recommend!!! πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜ŠπŸ˜Š Some people might want to scale back the smokiness by only adding half a teaspoon of smoked paprika but I LOVED it! My new go to!

  3. I also use cream cheese for my cheese sauce in Mac n cheese and creamed spinach. Its the best way 4 sure. I just use less cheese sauce since one time I had more sauce than spinach. lol.

  4. Omg I just tried your recipe out and I put a lil twist on it…I just had to tell you this is the best Mac and cheese..I had a bomb recipe myself but this takes the cake thank you so much 😁

  5. my family love this recipe. I have a question, how can I get the cream cheese to not curdle in the sauce and be very creamy? Also besides the cheeses you mentioned to make the sauce, what other cheese would be good to substitute it with?

  6. Don't get me wrong, looks absolutely delicious, but my internal calculator went haywire when you listed the cheese..lucky if I can afford the Velveeta…. just subscribed…
