I have an excellent recipe for you using this product. Credit is due to PBJ PhillyBoyJay from YouTube. This is PBJ Stouffer's Style Baked Macaroni and Cheese: 3 Cups Carnation Evaporated Milk, 16 Oz Elbow Macaroni, 4 TBS Margarine or Butter, 2 Cups (Divide in 2-1Cup Portions) of Shredded Mozzarella Cheese, 2 Cups (Divided in 2-1Cup Portions) of Shredded Cheddar Cheese, 8 Oz Sharp Cheddar Cheese Block-Cut into Cubes, 8 Oz Philly Cream Cheese Block-Cut into Cubes, 1 TBS Parsley Flakes, 1 TBS Salt, 1 1/2 TBS Sugar (Yes!), 1 tsp Black Pepper. Boil noodles. Melt shredded cheese, margarine or butter and evaporated milk in saucepan. Pour over cooked noodles. Make sure all noodles are covered, nobody wants a dry, uncoated noodle. Add cubed block cheeses on top. Bake in a baking pan, glass or metal at 350F in a preheated oven for 25-30 minutes. Top with remaining mozzarella and cheddar cheese shreds along with parsley flakes and bake an additional 5 minutes until golden and bubbly. The addition of this milk makes the cheese and butter sauce smoother. Enjoy. I really love this guy's content and he has tons of comfort food recipes with explicit instructions that are easy to follow; I know he likes his name brand products.

Carnation milk is a staple product in my home! I remember drinking this as a child. It’s a tasty addition to cakes, desserts, puddings and so much more. Substitute boring plain milk for this whenever milk is called for and your family will be sure to enjoy!

I really love this product since I was a child. I remember my grandmother using this in all her sweet and salty recipes. I think this is the best and original evaporated milk ever, it tastes really delicious and it adds a smoothie texture to the food.

We use it to make shakes, for pasta, for home made candy, it gives a very good taste better than the regular milk, its a little price but its worth it. I always buy this brand, I don’t like other brands for evaporate milk

I use this in any recipe that requires milk. No one in my house drinks milk and it spoils when ever we buy it so I started buying carnation’s and it is perfect. I can stock up, it doesn’t spoil, and it works better than fresh milk because it’s creamier

I have used this milk for years in my Mac & Cheese. Always has tasted great, no complaints about taste. I mixed with the sweetened version. Coating on my macaroni is flawless.

I might be a little weird here, but I love using this product as a creamer for my coffee. I pour just an estimated amount of  this creamer on my morning coffee. It gives just the right amount of creaminess and sweetness. And since it's fat free, I can indulge a little!
