I noticed in ingredients it says 2 cups cheese. In instructions it says step 4 mix cheese with macaroni until gummy. Later it says step 9 add cheese and bake additional 5 minutes. Are the 2 cups divided or is there more cheese for the top? Thanks wife wants to make this and want to do it right.

This is the best Mac n Cheese recipe! I made it for New Years Day dinner and it is the best I've found so far! Paula knows home cooking and it is so much like what my Mother used to make, but I never learned from her how to make it. It's the sour cream and eggs mixed together that gives it that wonderful ingredient that holds everything together so well. My family really enjoyed it with their Collards and Spare Ribs! This is a keeper and will make again and again!
