Mom's Mac & Cheese

Mom's Mac & Cheese

2 cups uncooked macaroni noodles
1 (16 ounce) package Velveeta Cheese
1 (15 ounce) can evaporated milk
1/4 cup milk
1 1/2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Prepare macaroni according to package directions.  Drain well, my mom says this is the key to making good Mac & Cheese.  Return macaroni to the pan it was cooked in.  Cube 3/4 of the Velveeta Cheese, add to macaroni.  Add evaporated milk, milk, butter, salt, and pepper.

Cook over medium heat until bubbly.  Cook 3 to 4 minutes or until cheese melts.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Pour mixture into 8x8 inch baking dish or deep pie dish.  Slice remaining Velveeta.  Arrange cheese slices on top.  Bake 35 minutes or until golden brown.

We can not have a family dinner without Mom's Mac & Cheese.  This creamy cheesy comfort food is everyone's favorite and there would be riots in the kitchen if mom did not fix it.

I had so much fun in Florida with my family!  But now it is back to reality.  I am in Iowa to promote and peddle my cookbooks at the Iowa State Fair.  For the next two weeks I will be posting pictures from the fair and prize winning recipe from the contests that I will be judging.

  1. Holy cow, you had the cojones to publish a recipe with Velveeta? I am half way through writing a book about Spam and Velveeta (and other odd things). Have fun at the fair and sell lots of books.

  2. Enjoy the fair. Love macaroni cooked anyway so I know this would be good :-) Diane

  3. Mom's are the best at making dishes like this. I love Velveeta and have to try it with the evaporated milk. I'm sure you'll have a blast judging at the fair and your cookbooks will go like hotcakes!

  4. Mac and cheese, a match made in heaven! It is one of the few times I use velveeta but worth it.

  5. I love mac & cheese...have fun at the fair...try not to eat too many corn dogs.
