    After it was in the dish I sprinkled it with water because it seemed dry. Then grated cheeses, cheddar, jack and swiss. No breadcrumbs and dotted it with butter. When it was done I sprinkled it with grated parmesan. Baked covered for 30 min and uncovered for 15

    Disgusting. Dry and tasteless. Followed recipe to the letter and even added a little more milk since the comments said to add more to make it creamier. It was gross. Waste of my velveeta

    Made this recently for the first time for a church dinner. It went over very well. Easy to make but I did make the macaroni before the sauce which worked well for me. With the macaroni being slightly cooled the cheese didn't soak up as much cheese but allowed it to stay on it. I also mixed the cracker crumbs and butter ahead of time to allow the moisture to settle into them. For those who thought it needed more flavor and added other items I would suggest it's due to their individual family tastes and what recipes they were used to. We thoroughly enjoyed it and even though I've cooked for more than 55 years, I'm always willing to try new (to me) recipes. Glad I did!
