    The Best Ever!

    I have been making this for years. I use cream of celery soup. I have added ham and corn, chicken and broccoli and even lobster. My kids loved it and so do my grandkids now. Can’t go wrong with this recipe....

    I adore this casserole so much, I make it every week!! Only thing I change is to add some onion chopped very fine, Worcestershire sauce,dry mustard and garlic powder, white wine and few dashes of cayenne to make it snappier. Often I substitute crushed potato chips for the fried onions which I sometimes shake up in a produce bag with some chili and garlic powder to enhance the flavor. I do not add chips at the last minute, but rather as a last step right before putting dish in the oven, and bake it at least 40-45 minutes. My other trick is to use Longhorn Cheese because it is full of cheddar flavor and melts so gooey good! Forever love!!

    Crunchy macaroni and cheese

    I make this using cheddar cheese soup instead of mushroom. It is great and so easy to make.

    Different twist on mac and cheese!

    The cream of mushroom soup gives this great taste! My picky kids love this.

    The onions not only added crunch, but tons of flavor too. I also stirred in about half the onions before baking so the flavor would bake in.
