Creamy Mac Cheese

A couple of months ago I posted a gluten free version of this recipe and it was a huge hit. I thought I’d finally post the regular version for all of you who don’t eat gluten free!

This recipe is amazing. My Mom has been making it my entire life and it is one of my favorite things she makes. It is rich, creamy and full of cheesy goodness. While I can never quite get this recipe as good as my Mom’s, I assure you it is the same.

The quantities called for in this recipe is half what my Mom normally makes. I find that if I make a large pot Alex and I can’t eat it all. If you have a large family or are trying to serve a crowd you’ll want to double the recipe. If you’re just wanting enough for one just halve this recipe. With the measurements listed here it is actually pretty easy.

You can really use whatever combination of shredded cheese you want. My preference is to combine parmesan and white cheddar or sharp cheddar cheeses. The only thing you really chant change is the velveeta. The recipe won’t be as creamy if you leave it out.

This is one recipe to impress your friends and family with. Once you make it people will be asking you for the recipe time and again. Not only will your kids love this, adults will love it too. Happy Eating!
