What a great potluck dish for the 4th of July!

can bread crumbles be used instead of bread?

This particular recipe is a casserole, not traditional macaroni and cheese. The purpose of the bread and milk combination is to make the dish lighter and not as dense, the same way you add milk and bread to meatloaf. So, in this instance bread crumbs would not work as a substitute. Thank you for your question!

Does anyone know if the bread can be left out of this recipe? I would assume that, if the bread is deleted, then the beaten eggs could be, as well. Would this be the case? I would like to do the above and then add cooked, crumbled, ground meat to the casserole.

Thank you for your question. Please keep in mind this is a casserole, not just macaroni and cheese. If you prefer, you can leave out the bread and eggs. The purpose of the bread is to make the casserole less dense and the eggs work as a binder to keep it all together. Feel free to add the ground meat as well. Please know that this recipe has not been tried in the Test Kitchen with the modifications you inquired about, so we can not guarantee the results. Thank you!

Yes, why the bread?

The bread is added to this recipe to make it less dense and a bit more light and fluffy. This is similar to adding bread to meatloaf. Thank you and enjoy!

Why the bread in this receipe?

I've used several of mr food recipes , they were very ta stey. Itruly enjoy this site.

Yes i like some recipes for two.Thanks

I agree with Albert C to also give an option to scale down the recipes for two people. Thanks

Lessee... If the recipe as written serves 6, then to serve only 2 you would divide by... 3! It's not rocket science.

Why don't you offer scaled down recipes, some of us are single or are just a couple?

It's easy to scale it yourself, just do a little math :)
