Homemade Mac & Cheese Recipe


Visitors: 546

There's nothing more special than a home cooked meal. Instead of reaching for the box dinner of this classic the next time you are at the store, try buying the ingredients so you can make your own!

While there is a little bit more prep work involved in making your own Mac & Cheese rather than just making it out of the box, it's not much. You'll first need to make sure you have all the ingredients, including optional ingredients.

What you'll need:

- Pasta shells or macaroni pasta (will depend on preference)
- Velveeta Cheese
- Milk
- Butter
- Hamburger (optional)

If you do plan to include hamburger, you'll want to cook this first before you even start your mac & cheese, because it will be the last step and you don't want to be waiting for it.


Cook hamburger, set aside. Boil water and cook pasta as directed. While pasta is cooking, cut cheese into bite sized pieces (the smaller they are, the easier they melt). Make sure your milk and butter is out as well, so you aren't racing to find it.

Once pasta is finished, drain and return to pot. Slowly add in milk, cheese, and a small amount of butter. Amounts will depend on your own preferences, and do be careful with the amount of milk you add to start. Too much milk and you'll have Mac & Cheese soup! Hamburger is added last and again will depend on preference.

Enjoy this tasty homemade treat!
