    What a welcome sight, another new recipe! This mac n cheese looks so good, I might have to convince my vegan pals to break their code and give it a shot. 😀

    What a cute dog!

  3. Judy K Says:

    Nice to see you back, Tyler! I’ll make this tonight.

  4. Bryan Says:

    Lost it at “Tree-Fiddy”. I’ll be trying this for our Thanksgiving feast.

  5. Jamey Says:

    second to the cute dog and “Tree-Fiddy” … and ‘Merica!

  6. Zach Says:

    This looks amazing. So glad you’re back! I’ll have to try this soon!

  7. Rachel Says:

    Two things I realize I missed terribly. Angus, and the easy meters. I’m glad you’re back.

  8. JUDY Says:

    Missed you Tyler. I have made mac and cheese for years but mine comes out kind of dry. Yours looks creamy and gooey and fantastic. Gonna make it for sure

    Good recipe, but there were a few assumptions made for the recipe. One is, where the salt needs to be added in. (I am assuming that it is during the cooking of the macaroni.) Second is when you are making the rue. Should the milk be added in a little at a time so that it does not curdle the milk?

    Nice! One tip: it’s a bit weird to convert Fahrenheit to Celsius exactly. If you turn it up to 350F, you’d use 180C – no one turns their oven to 173C just like you wouldn’t turn it to 352F 😉

    This is great. I just sent the link to my gf & suggested we add cubed ham.

  12. Elk' Says:

    Pasta and cheese casseroles have been recorded as early as the 14th century in the Italian cookbook Liber de Coquina, one of the oldest medieval cookbooks.
    “Makerouns” was a medieval english dish made with pasta and a mixture of melted butter and cheese.
    In 1769, the dish was in a Frensh cookbook. Then a British one. All of these used macaroni, butter and cheese.
    Thomas Jefferson encountered macaroni both in Paris and in northern Italy. But it was only in 1802 that he did actually served “a pie called macaroni” at a state dinner.

    So please, it’s not because Thomas Jefferson is in the story, that the thing is actually American. Have some respect for other cultures.

    Hope you don’t get tired of hearing it, glad you’re back!! Buddy of mine referred me to your site a long time ago. Now I continue sharing it with others (my girlfriend nearly spit out a cookie first time, she was laughing so hard).

    I’ve written down several of your recipes in my little black book of kitchen sorcery, but I always end up with the ‘ol tablet propped up in the kitchen scrolling down the comic while cooking instead. Just. Too. Much. Fun.

    Glad to hear you’re doing alright, going to have to check out the Patreon link!

    This is an awesome way to tweak my Rattlesnake Mac (an extremely spicy variation I make for the fams). Farewell, Kraft, now I’ve found something better!

  15. Chris Says:

    My girlfriend and I just made this with the addition of some spinach and bacon ends and dear god in heaven! Just had to thank you for the recipe before we go sleep off a food coma.

  16. @TimKerrick Says:

    /making my 2nd batch, using vegetable rotini and 2 thick ham steaks sliced into a layer of small cubes layered in the middle. I’m really excited for whats coming in the next 45min.

  17. CanadianFox Says:

    Welcome back. Nice way to explain the story! Looks good

  18. Katychla Says:

    Just made this! The only change was some panko crust. Absolutely delicious.

  19. Thomas Says:

    “Robin and Laura Williams.”

    You don’t mean….

    Great recipe though!!

  20. Shiken Says:

    Making this tonight, and adding cubed ham.

    This dish it’s so Usian, that it is so Italian.
