Exclamation Recipe for Mac & Cheese

My daughter loved the Mac & Cheese on the Carnival Miracle.

And I don't mind telling you it was the best backed macaroni and cheese I ever eaten! We had asked our head waiter for the recipe, but our daughter was sick the last day of the cruise and we didn't go to dinner that night.

Would anyone be so kind as to get the recipe for me? I have searched the internet to no avail and this is my last hope of getting it.

I would suggest calling the cruiseline. They sometimes can get this info for you. Never hurts to try. If they don't help you you could always go on another cruise!

I've given away my Carnival cookbooks, and the recipe may be in one of them. If you know someone who's cruised on Carnival, ask them if they have any of the cookbooks. OR - Give Guest Services a call, or email, and I bet you'll get the recipe. Good luck.

Good luck contacting Carnival with recipe requests! I've asked for several (at different times) without success. You might try Amazon for their cookbook, or even e-bay.

I'm leaving on the Miracle next week. I'll try and find out what the recipe is and post it when I return.

They serve the mac and cheese in custard dishes. Our server told us the secret is the melted cheese on top, it mozzarella.

Probably why the kids like it so much. Different taste that the orange goo that passes for cheese in kraft boxes. Personally, I thought it was a bit bland, but I prefer sharp aged cheddar in the mac n cheese I make. Love the dark crusty brown top layer it makes. That said, I'll take the M&C anyday over the various mutations of strained sweet potatoes they sometimes pass off in the veggie selections late in the cruise.

Have you tried searching for it on Google? I have found some of the RCCL's recipes by searching. You may get something pretty close.

That recipe made me drool. And my arteries started crying already. I can just imagine making the full recipe (all 10.5 pounds of cheese, 3.75 lbs of sour cream and even more cream), then eating it for a week straight. I love mac and cheese a little too much, I think

We just got off the Conquest on 3/28/10.
I have to agree that this is the "best" mac n' cheese that I have ever had.
Now I know why.
You taste the cream and the richness of the cheese.
Yum!!

Sounds good, but not nearly as good as my homemade Sicilian Macaroni and Cheese.

Sicilian Mac 'n Cheese? I'm sure it's a family recipe, but would you be willing to share it? I'm always on the lookout for great mac 'n cheese recipes.

I'm not sure, but guessing from the amounts of the other ingredients I would imagine the heavy cream are pints. If you're reducing the size of the recipe to cook at home, I'd start by treating the heavy cream measurement as pints and then increasing it if necessary.

Thank you very much for the suggestion of pints of heavy cream. Someday I'll have to get the courage to make this dish in large quantities. However, eating it in large quantities will not be a problem!
