The Cheesiest Macaroni and Cheese

Simple, pure, unadulterated, cheesy. That’s kid-pleasin’ mac ‘n’ cheese, and so much better than anything you can get out of a box! You can use other shredded cheeses if you prefer, and mix it up with chopped veggies and even add meat.

Difficulty: Easy

Servings: 6-8

Prep Time: 20 minutes   Cook Time: 20-25 minutes  


1 cup elbow macaroni (measure uncooked)
1 tablespoon butter (or margerine)
1 tablespoon flour
dash of pepper
1 1/4 cups milk
8 ounces Velveeta cheese, cubed


Preheat oven to 350-degrees. Boil the macaroni while you prepare the cheese sauce. For cheese sauce, melt butter in a large saucepan on medium heat. (If you want to add chopped onions, peppers, etc, saute them now in the butter.) Add one tablespoon flour and a dash of pepper to the melted butter. Stir to combine butter, flour, and pepper. Add milk all at once, stirring on medium heat until the flour and butter dissolve into the milk and the entire mixture thickens and starts to bubble. Add cheese and stir to melt. Spoon in the cooked, drained macaroni. (If you’re adding cooked ground beef or other meat, mix in along with the macaroni.) Transfer to a greased casserole dish. Bake at 350-degrees for about 20-25 minutes.
