Georgia Macaroni With American Cheese

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 5 mins

This is a recipe that I got from one of my husband's Marine friend's Mother. She came up to Virginia to visit him, and she cooked everyone a Southern Feast! My husband fell in love with the macaroni and cheese, so I asked her for the recipe, and, here it is! NOTE: This recipe is really just made by feel. After reading the reviews I received I re-adjusted the amount of milk in the recipe. Feel free to add, or subtract the amounts of salt, pepper, cheese or milk! Enjoy!


  1. Boil 4 cups of salted water and add the macaroni; cook 8 minutes, or until done; Drain macaroni and set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan, melt butter over LOW heat.
  3. Add cheese slices, one by one, until all are melted through, and cheese is smooth.
  4. Stir in the canned milk, more or less to your desired consistency.
  5. Add drained macaroni to cheese mixture; add salt and pepper to taste, and mix well until coated.
  6. Serve immediately.

This was easy to make and good to eat. I used 8 slices of white American cheese and it was just perfect.

I really enjoyed this dish and I am not much of a Mac & Cheese lover. I only crave it once in a great while. This recipe was super quick and easy, which I love! I recommend it if you want a quick craving fix or a quick side dish. I mixed it up a bit by using slices of deli American, some deli sharp American and a bit of shredded cheddar and when finished I sprinkled it all with a bit of bread crumbs(I feel it is not Mac & Cheese without them). It was a bit thick and maybe could have used a couple more tablespoons of milk to make it a little creamier, but that may be because I put a little extra cheese in it. I may use 1/3 cup of milk next time. Recipe does not make much. Maybe 4-5 servings if served as a side or 2 servings if having it as main meal. I recommend double/tripling recipe if you have a large family or want to serve it for a party. Thanks JuJu!
