3 Cheese Macaroni & Cheese

OMG....I have to share this recipe with everyone.
The family came for dinner the other day and I was pressed for something filling to make. We were having a delicious butt pork roast (I'll give that recipe another time), a mess of turnip greens, cornbread, apple pie and iced tea. But I needed something else......what to do......Mac & Cheese came to mind.
Here's what I did:


  • In large pot, I cooked 2 cups of macaroni, drained and set aside.
  • In another large pot, I melted 1 stick butter along with l pkg of Mozzarella (cubed); 1 pkg Cheddar (cubed...I used the mild but sharp works as well); 1 pkg Monterey Jack (cubed & my favorite). Each cheese package is 8 ounces. Sorry I didn't say that in the first place. You could use Goda but I didn't have that. Cubing the cheese helps it to melt faster.
  • Stir constantly.
  • Add milk as needed to lend a smoother cheesiness. I don't have a measurement for the milk. Just pour small amounts at a time while stirring. The mixture will become more smooth and creamier. Hope that isn't too confusing. I also added about 2 tablespoons flour to the mix sometimes if the mixture becomes to watery.
  • Pour cooked macaroni into cheese stirring until well coated.
  • As a kicker, I also added 1 cup of cooked shrimp but the Mac & Cheese is good without that!!
  • Grease a casserole dish and pour mixture into it. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes. 
  • Remove from oven, sprinkle Parmesan cheese and Smoked Paprika over top. (You can find Smoked Paprika in seasoning isle)  I love Parmesan cheese so I use a lot but if you don't like it, use very little or none at all. It really doesn't affect the taste one bit.
  • Serve immediately or whenever.


Note: Sorry I have no photo of the results. When I thought about taking a photo, the Mac & Cheese had already been devoured.

Rhonda can you clarify for me.. You melt the cheeses and butter in a pot on the stove and then after the cheese is melted you stir it all together noodles and cheese mixture then pour into your baking pan and bake...

Yum. One more question: What size packages are the cheeses?

This recipe sounds divine. Can you please give the measurements so I don't mess it up?

I remember the best mac and cheese with quartered hard boiled eggs and a tad of yellow mustard in with the cheese.

You are making me hungry. My son and his family are coming tomorrow for supper and then we are going to a minor league baseball game. I was planning on making spaghetti. My spaghetti is always hit with them. Now, I'm rethinking and they may get hamburgers and mac & cheese. Yum, yum! Either one is a winner in my book.

Yummy yum yum! Mac & Cheese is the best when it is homemade! Your recipe sounds like a winner.
