Mac and Cheese is one of my favorite foods! I am not the best at making it, but I think I do ok. Below is my mac and cheese recipe.
This recipe will make one large aluminum roasting pan.
The recipe can be cut in half to accommodate a smaller portion.
- 1 large aluminum rosasting pan
- Non-stick spray
- 32 ounces of macaroni noodles (large or small)
- 10 cups of half and half (can use regular whole milk if you prefer)
- 1 large box of Velveeta cheese
- 1 8oz block of colby cheese
- 1 8oz block of jack cheese
- 1 8oz block of medium cheddar cheese
- Half stick of real butter
- 1 egg
~Preheat the oven at 400 degrees
~Spray the aluminum pan with non-stick spray and set it to the side.
~Cook the noodles as directed on the package. Drain and rinse. Set them to the side.
*If you prefer firmer noodles, you can boil cut the boiling time down for 1-2 minutes. Remember, the noodles will cook while they are in the oven.
~Put butter and half and half in a large pot. Whisk the egg into the milk before turning on the heat.
~Heat the butter and milk on medium heat.
~Cut up all the cheeses in chunks and put in the warm milk. (If you would like to add cheese to the top, you can grate half of the colby, jack, and cheddar to sprinkle on the top before baking.)
~Turn up the heat and stir continuously until all of the cheese is melted.
~Pour the noodles into the pot and stir gently.
~After all of the noodles are completely coated with cheese sauce, poor the mixture into the aluminum pan.
~Bake in the center of the oven uncovered until golden brown
~Remove from the oven and let stand for 20 minutes.
