  • I make mine the way my MIL did. I just boil and drain the macaroni. Cube some Velveeta, put it in, a little milk,and a whole stick of margarine. Leave it on low heat, and stir to melt everything. I never have leftovers.

    Cook macaroni
    Grate cheese very generous quantities
    layer macaroni and cheese
    Mix milk, butter and flour to make a very runny rue (very runny)
    Pour milk mixture over mac and cheese
    Bake 350 until golden brown

  • I put the uncooked macaroni into a dish with cheese sauce (milk, cheese, flour, butter) and water to cover and more cheese, and a little cream if I have it, put it in the oven for 25min, then stir in more cheese, and cover with cheese and cook for another 20min.
