Recipe by Leahcooks

I have been trying to figure out my grandmother's mac n cheese recipe for several years since the recipe she left me had no measurements and very vague instructions. I think I finally got it! It is made with only Extra Sharp Cheddar which gives it a different taste than the normal mac n cheese. It is saucy and not stringy and moist not dry! You won't be disappointed

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut up blocks of cheese into small cubes.
  2. Combine cheese, butter and milk into a sauce pan on VERY LOW heat.
  3. Stir frequently with a wooden spoon for 30 minutes until completely melted (the sauce should be runny, not stringy, lowest heat possible will ensure this).
  4. Boil picolini (or any noodles you prefer) until tender and drain (do not rinse).
  5. When noodles are drained and sauce is finished, stir together and place in a large baking dish.
  6. Broil on high in the oven until velveeta is brown on top.
