Crackaroni (Macaroni and Cheese)

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Kate 8

The most awesome macaroni and cheese ever! So addictive, we call it "crackaroni." You just can't stop eating this fabulously creamy concoction. I slightly changed the recipe of a coworker who brought it to a potluck. Proceed at your own risk. I can't be responsible for the rise in your cholesterol levels.

This was very good, although the ingredients call for vinegar and the instructions say sugar. I assumed sugar was correct and this was fairly easy to make. I used bow-tie pasta and made it in my LeCrueset. I gave it four stars because although this was very good, I am not sure I will make it again.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook and drain macaroni slightly al dente. Place in greased 2 qt casserole dish.
  2. Melt butter over medium heat. Add flour for a light roux.
  3. Stirring constantly, gradually add the milk, cooking until thickened.
  4. Add pepper, salt and sugar, mixing thoroughly.
  5. Add Velveeta cubes and stir until melted.
  6. Add sour cream and cottage cheese, stirring until well combined.
  7. Pour over macaroni and mix well. It will look "cheesy" but will soak into the macaroni during cooking.
  8. Spread cheddar cheese over the top.
  9. Sprinkle with paprika.
  10. Bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes.
