    Mom's Baked Macaroni and Cheese


    Recipe Description
    A nontraditional mac and cheese that calls for chunks of cheese baked with the macaroni instead of a cheese sauce. My Mom always used whole milk for this but it works equally as well with 2% or a half and half combination of evaporated milk & skim.
    Preparation Steps:Level of Difficulty:
    Easy
    Time Needed:
    2 hours
    Ingredients:
    4 cups elbow macaroni, uncooked
    1/4 cup butter, cut into 1" cubes
    1 1/2 pounds colby cheese, cut into 1" cubes
    1/2 gallon lowfat milk*
    salt and pepper, to taste
    Serves:
    8-12 servings
    Directions:
    1. Cook elbow macaroni according to package directions. Drain and pour into a deep baking dish. Add cubed butter, cubed cheese, and salt and pepper and mix.

    2. Pour milk over all until macaroni and cheese is covered completely by the milk. A half gallon is an estimate, you may need more or less milk depending on the size and depth of the baking dish.

    3. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for approximately one and one half hours or until all the liquid is absorbed and casserole is firm.

    I have a recipe that is similar but uses Velveeta, real cheese like in yours must be awesome. Can't wait to try it.

    Ditto what Darlene said...

    I recently made baked mac and cheese with the Mushroom and Leek variety of cheese that Aldi's offers just before the winter holidays. (yeah, I bought 4 of them and they kept very well) hehehehe
