Southern Style Macaroni and Cheese

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by CCinSC

Very cheesy, very easy and oh so good! This is my family's absolutely favorite mac and cheese. I can't even think about making a different recipe without getting, "what, are you nuts?". You can bake this in the oven or use the crockpot method. Hope you like this as much as we do!

This was really easy to put together. I made if for Mom since she doesn't care for frozen or boxed mac'n'cheese but doesn't feel like making her own. She says she's enjoying it. There's a little different texture here, due to the cheese not being melted into the milk before baking.
