I tried this recipe and it was way too eggie for me. I was like scrambled eggs with pasta not cheddar mac cheese. It was like eating a souffl. I felt like I should be swrving this for breakfast instead of dinner. Next time I will try it with only 3 eggs instead of 6.

Hi there, Cowboy! We're sorry it was too eggy for you. This is definitely meant to be more of a bake, and less of the original-tasting mac and cheese recipes you may be familiar with. It should definitely work and be absolutely delicious with 3 eggs. Let us know how it turns out!

At first I was a bit wary of this recipe, since it calls for so much butter and 6 eggs - I thought it would turn out like some kind of noodly quiche. But after making it I understood why since it makes a very large batch. If you didn't have any mustard powder, you could just use your favorite mustard for this - I used the spicy brown variety. It was very good! Next time I make it I might add some broccoli florets and diced ham to make it a full meal rather than as a side dish.

Once in a while I add cooked ground beef to this recipe!! Makes it more of a main dish . And as always Oooh sooo gooood!!

What is mustard powder in this recipe? I have never used it or heard of it.

Look for it in your spice isle.

Sometimes called dry mustard or ground mustard seed.

This is a very good recipe. However, I added onion and sweet red & orange peppers sauted in extra virgin olive oil to give color and more more flavor. I also added extra virgin olive oil to the pasta and the baking dish instead of using cooking spray. We had this for our family gathering on Easter Sunday and the gang loved it.

this sounds & looks very good. I haven't make it yet, but you can bet your bottom dollar I'm going to. Thank you!
