  • I love, love, love Velvetta's Mac and Cheese. So creamy, so tasty, so easy. I have made my own before and this is just so much better.

  • I have several variations of mac & cheese that my family loves! Elbow macaroni noodles-cooked to desired tenderness and drained. I use either Velveeta cheese, or when I have several different types of shredded cheese (with almost nothing left in the bag), mix 'em all together & let it melt. I have used cheddar, mozzarella, colby, monterey (or monterey jack) and even provolone. Good luck!

  • most thetime it is from the box I add a tinny bit of butter 4 or 5 pieces of kraft single cheese and the sauce mix so good tastes like the vavleta mac and cheese. If I do make it on my own I boil the macaroni. The cheese I buy a brick cheese and add some milk micorwave until melted. After noodles are done I drain and then I put back in pan and add the cheese and mix

  • like most of the other posters, i follow the recipe on the side of the box. We however don't always get Kraft I am a big generic fan and my kids don't care for the Kraft kind so lucky me

  • I melt a stick of butter, bunch of shredded cheddar cheese and milk in a pan until it's all melty and creamy.

    Then i mix in an egg and the noodles, dump it in a pan, put more chesse on top and stick in the oven at 425 until the top gets brown.

    I am not sure about the amounts, i just keep adding stuff until it looks right.

  • I cook the mac noodles until they are just done and put them in a baking dish. I add 2 cups of milk, salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder, an egg, and blocks of extra sharp cheddar and stir. I bake at 400 for 30 minutes and then stir until the cheese is even throughout and bake another 30 minutes until done.

  • I make the cheese by melting a stick of butter, adding some flour and milk and melting sharp chedder cheese in it. When its all melted i mix in the cooked noodles. I also make a pot of stewed tomatoes to go with it. It's one of our favorite meals in the house and I learned the recipe from my grandmother. I think the recipe was originally baked but I skip that part.
