Kfc Macaroni and Cheese

"A favorite among kids and kids at heart is the Colonel's Macaroni and cheese which was originally made fresh daily. Now it comes premade and is cooked in an oven like it originally was when it was made fresh. This was sent to a recipe group, AARestaurant_Recipes, by tabbitha."

  1. I made this recipe and it is NOT KFC mac'n cheese. Its the same recipe posted on many other sites claiming to be the same as the one used by the colonel. This one is not as cheesy and tastes kind of flavorless. Kraft dinner tastes cheesier than this.
  2. I doubled the recipe and omitted the baking part due to the other reviewers comments. It was great. My kids loved it. I wouldn't say it was like KFC's but it was really good.
  3. It was looking very good before I put it in the oven. Velvety cheese, not too salty, I couldn't wait. But when I took it out of the oven, the cheese kind of coagulated, which I certainly didn't expect from the Velveeta. It didn't separate like an all "real" cheese mac. It tasted fine, and DH didn't complain, but I was disappointed visually. Don't know what I did wrong... Next time I'll omit the oven and see what we think. Thanks for the recipe, QT.
  4. My mom always used Velveeta cheese, so when I saw the ingredients, I knew I had to try it. It is very good, although I don't think it is like KFC because I don't think theirs is baked. During the baking, the macaroni absorbs much of the sauce. Perhaps it would be similar without the baking step. Any way, it's just what I was looking for. I did make these changes: I used 1/2 cup total(or more) of milk, added 1/2 tsp dry mustard, and some cracked black pepper.
  5. This is good. I just made it for a bbq and the kids loved it. I did not bake it, and it was still great.
