Baked Macaroni and Cheeses

Lauren Hurst


This is a tried and true family favorite. Every time we have a family get together it is a given that I make "your macaroni and cheese". My family feels like they haven't had the holiday dinner if this is not on the table.

My mother initially introduced me to this method but, over the years, I have made quite a few changes and based on the raving reviews, they were for the better.

50 Min


1 lb
box of any type pasta you like. i like ribbed elbows and curly macaroni for this. sometimes a ziti or penne is nice too.
2 1/2 c
whole milk
1 Tbsp
worchestershire sauce
1 tsp
horseradish sauce
1 tsp
mustard-any kind
salt and pepper to taste
16 slice
velveeta cheese
1 c
shredded swiss cheese
1/2 c
shredded pepperjack cheese
3 c
kraft cheddar melts or any blend of chesses

Directions Step-By-Step

Cook the pasta according to package directions. Pasta still needs to be al dente so it won't overcook while the casserole is baking. Drain well and set aside.
While pasta is cooking, put all of the ingredients except for the cheeses in a blender. Blend them just before you are ready to pour over casserole.
In a 13x9 casserole, cover the bottom with 1/2 of the pasta. Top with 8 slices of Velveeta Cheese,add the swiss and pepperjack. Make sure the cheeses are spread evenly. Layer remaining noodles over the cheeses. Top with 8 more slices of Velveeta then evenly spread the 3 cups of Kraft Cheddar Melts or blend of your choice on top of the slices.
Blend all of the liquid ingredients well and immediately pour the mixture evenly over the macaroni and cheeses.

Hint-Some may like a little more milk. If you want more, evenly drizzle whole milk over the casserole. You can use up to 1/2 cup,if desired, No more.
Bake in preheated 350 degree oven until lightly browned and bubbly. At least 45 mins,up to an hour.

Serve with anything or it's great all by itself!!
