Since I was a young child, my Mother made this. And now that I have a young one and family of my own, I love to share this amazing dish. It's easy to make and the outcome is just pure heaven. Cheesy, comforting, and a classic. Hope you enjoy!!

This was so simple to make. I switched around the directions, so not to dirty 2 pans. I cooked the macaroni first and as it was draining, the cheese sauce was made in the same pan. Sprinkled with plain bread crumbs. Made for My-3-Chefs June 2012~~ Theme: Mac & Cheese

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Tear all 24 slices of cheese into pieces; place in a medium saucepan on low heat.
  3. Add butter and sprinkle with black pepper to taste.
  4. Add 2 cups milk just until cheese is almost covered (you can always add more later).
  5. Add pepper.
  6. Keep on low to medium heat until completely melted; be sure to constantly stir so it doesn't stick or burn.
  7. Boil macaroni as directed on package; drain and place in an 11x7 baking dish.
  8. Pour cheese mixture into macaroni; stir in thoroughly until well mixed. (This is my favorite part, where the magic happens!).
  9. Sprinkle top with breadcrumbs.
  10. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 to 20 minutes until edges are bubbling.
  11. Enjoy!
  12. The servings listed are as a meal, but it works well as a side dish too!
