Georgia Macaroni With American Cheese

Total Time

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.

Way better than boxed macaroni. Takes only a little longer to make but worth it for the taste!

This was good, especially easy for a weeknight dinner. I had to use up some leftover slices of American cheese from the deli before they went bad and this recipe was perfect for that. I think this would be good with Kraft cheese slices too. Will try that next time. Thanks!
