Homemade Baked Mac and Cheese Recipe


Prepare yourself for the best Homemade Baked Mac and Cheese recipe you will ever make…

I am not a chef I tell you. Not a chef.

In fact, cooking is not one of my “things”. Most of the time when I cook, it turns out so-so.

Maybe it’s because I prefer to cook meals that are quick. Easy. Don’t take a million ingredients. Because let’s be honest…if your recipe calls for xxxxxxx…there’s a good chance that I will spend WAY TOO MUCH time searching for xxxxxxxx at the grocery store. And the grocery store….is my least favorite place.

However, there are a FEW recipes that I like to say I have mastered. Don’t worry, I’m not being cocky. Like I said, there are only a few.

One of them is my Grandma B’s Homemade Baked Mac and Cheese!

3 reasons I love this recipe:

1. It’s my Grandma’s



3. It has FOUR ingredients!

Here is what you will need:

1 block of Velveeta cheese and 1 block of colby cheese

You will need a 13×9 baking dish.

First, I like to boil some water and cook my pasta. Make sure you don’t overcook it. You don’t want it to be too mushy.

While my pasta is boiling I cut up my cheese in to small slices. I layer the bottom of my baking dish with both kinds of cheese and 1/3 a stick of butter. Then I add a layer of cooked pasta over the cheese. Top it with more cheese and butter. Another layer of pasta. Another layer of cheese and butter.

Add about 1 cup of milk. Or maybe a little more. I like the milk to fill up the pan about half way.

      Ppot roast put the roast is a 13 by 9 inch pan or casserole dish. Add a can of cream of mushroom soup and one package of lipton onion soup mix. No need to mix it all together just plop it on top of the roast. You can add a little water about a half of a cup. Add your carrots. I don’t peal my carrots and add your peeled potatoes. Cover with foil or casserole lid. Bake at 300-325 for hours or until meat is moist and stringy. If you don’t cook pot roast long enough it will be tough. You can do this in the crock pot too. But I prefer it in the oven. Enjoy a fast an easy home cooked meal.

    I LOVE comfort foods and this is definitely a winner. I spent nearly a decade avoiding fun foods just to stay thin, but not any longer. WOW – this is being made and being served (and being eaten – by me!) Thank you! Scott – *I still think you are a darling girl – always have!

    I am sooo tired of trying to find a “staple” homemade Macaroni and Cheese recipe that tastes wonderful, and that my family would request over and over again!!! I’ve tried many recipes, and each of them turn out to be a disappointment!! I look forward to trying your recipe, Mandy. Thank you.
