I Need Old Fashioned Mac N Cheese Recipe
Thu, 08-16-2007 - 3:49pm

I never got the chance to get my mom's mac n cheese recipe before she passed away. The ones I find online and in cookbooks anymore are too fancy...too many specailty cheeses and tons of ingredients. I remember my mom's as being simple with only a few ingredients. I know there was Velveeda cheese.

Does anyone have a recipe like that? I'd love to have it! My DD and DH could live off Kraft, but not me!

Hi Misty -

I don't have a "recipe" but this is what I do (I actually JUST had it for lunch today) -

Preheat oven to 350. Cook about 2 cups of shell or elbow pasta. Cut up 8oz package of Velveeta. After you drain the pasta, throw the cheese in the pot with the pasta and a dash of milk. (I season with pepper and onion powder) After cheese is melted, pour into an 8x8 baking dish and bake 25-30 minutes.

Optional topping - sprinkle bread crumbs on top right before baking and put a few dolops of butter on top so you'll have a crunchy crust.

Tracy's recipe looks good and so easy. Mine has a few more ingrediants and steps, but it's always a big hit at gatherings (made with real cheese though also). I'll post it when I get home tonight.
