Anyone have a great homemade mac & cheese recipe? The cheesier the better!

Kraft Homestyle Macaroni and Cheese. They come in a bag with the breadcrumbs so you can bake in the oven. Fools almost anyone.

Yes, this is awesome. Sorry I haven't measured for years.

Macaroni. preferable italian. Cook and reserve.

Make a white sauce using flour and butter, mix well to form a roux, then add in milk and or cream to make a white sauce. Add in spices or worcestershire sauce or dry mustard to taste.

Add grated cheese, as much as the sauce will take. I use a mixture of extra sharp and medium orange cheddar. Handfuls, do not skimp.

Toss the sauce into the cooked macaroni. Put in buttered casserole.

Top with toasted buttered breadcrumbs and bake till golden and bubbly.

Cannot be beat.

Good Luck. My five grandkids swear this is world class.

For years, church groups would provide dinners each month for the teen moms in my program. I always looked forward to their homemade macaroni and cheese. What I loved was the macaroni itself wasn't covered with glue-like white sauce (the way I always made it) but rather they were in a milkier buttery-er sauce and then there was a thick crust on top of sharp cheddar cheese which had nice brown-y places.
The sad thing is, none of them ever gave me their recipe. But, I asked someone if she knew what they did different (than my way, with the white sauce that I would add cheese to) and the person said it's the EGGS in the recipe!!!
So I looked around until I found a recipe that used eggs (in an old Joy of Cooking cookbook, first published in 1931 but I have the 1953 edition). Here is that recipe:

Cook 1 cup macaroni til al dente (I like to use the large size macaroni)
Drain it. Place layers of macaroni in a buttered baking dish. Sprinkle the layers with:
7/8 cup grated cheese
Beat until blended
1 or 2 eggs
2/3 cup whole milk
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp paprika
and pour over the macaroni. Sprinkle the top with
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1/8 cup cheese
Bake in a 400 degree oven until it is well browned.

chop up some ham and mix it in with the macaroni
pour some in a casserole
cover it with shredded cheddar cheese
add some more macaroni
cover it with some more shredded cheddar cheese
put about 5 dabs of butter on top
throw some salt and pepper on top
pour about 2/3 of a can of evaporated milk over the whole thing

Here's a really, really easy one.

Cook 1 pound of macaroni that will hold cheese well, I usually use regular elbows but you can use any shape that holds cheese, like shells or ziti. Drain well, and dump it in a 9 x 13 aluminum foil baking pan (so you can throw it away rather than wash up!).

Warm 1 can evaporated milk (NOT condensed, which is sweet) and 16 ounces of shredded cheddar cheese in the microwave, stirring every so often, until cheese is melted.

Dump it over the macaroni in the pan, stir it up. Put slices of American cheese on top to cover the entire top.

Cover, bake at 350 degrees for about 1 hour. I usually uncover it the last 10-15 minutes or so.

Easy, easy, easy.
