Velveeta Ultimate Macaroni and Cheese

"I got this off a box of Velveeta Cheese when I saw it made on Good Morning America. The recipe is exact, i haven't changed it. I usually buy the large block of Velveeta cheese and store any unused cheese in ziploc bags, so I'm forever searching for the recipe. It's easy and fast. My family swears it tastes just like KFC! You can also put the Macaroni and Cheese in a greased casserole dish and make a topping out of 1 sleeve of crushed Ritz Crackers and 1 stick of melted butter. Combine and then sprinkle on top of casserole. Bake in 350 degree oven till top is golden brown."

    Has anyone tries this with the shredded Velveeta cheese? If so how did it turn out?

    How can you take this to a potluck? My child eats nothing at these things but mashed potatoes and macaroni and cheese.

    I tried making all the "gourmet" mac & cheese recipes (with fancy cheeses, etc) until my son told me that the best mac & cheese was his aunt's. This one. It's what I make now - solid comfort food. This is really good baked in the oven, to give it a toasty crust - you can skip the crumb topping, and it's just fine.

    This is *gourmet comfort food* pure and simple! :) I made this using 1 cup of elbow macaroni, 6 ounces of Velveeta plus a tablespoon of butter along with the 1/3 cup milk and pepper, served with beer brats sauteed in butter for a serving for two. Thanks!

    Perfect! I used whole wheat penne pasta and followed the rest exactly. Tasted absolutely fabulous and this recipe is a keeper!

    Found this recipe to be cheesy and extremely easy to make. In Canada Velveeta comes in a 16 ounce package. So we worked with what we had. I think you could add 3 cups of elbow macaroni or possibly 4 cups and still get a satisfying recipe. I would definitely serve to a crowd for a summer barbecue with burgers or dogs. Made to specs except the amount of cheese.

    I grew up eating velveeta mac and cheese. I think it is the perfect melting cheese for this. I made a whole box of shells with the 12 oz of cheese and I added a bit more milk and some butter as well.. PERFECT

    I made this and added some dry mustard and a big handful shredded sharp cheddar when I made this. The whole family liked it!

    I doubled the recipe then added 1 cup of crispy bacon bits and 1 diced hot pepper for a little zing.


<img src=""> I'm a work from home mom of two, born and raised in NY now living in Chattanooga, TN. I love cooking and reading cookbooks, I'm always looking for new ideas! Being a true Italian, I have always loved making traditional dishes like Eggplant & Chicken Cutlet Parmigiana with a side of Spaghetti, Manicotti with homemade crepe's (none of those store bought shells for me), Pasta Fagioli and good old Tiramisu! My goal in life is to open a restaurant or catering business. I have been dabbing in catering friends parties now and then, but to do it full time would be my dream come true!
