St. Louis mac & cheese
Sheilagh Lange Romero
Don't rush the prep time and of course the bake time is approximate.
- whole milk
- velveeta cheese
- cheddar cheese
- monterey jack cheese
- cream cheese
- bacon bits
- ritz crackers
- macaroni noodles
- salt and pepper
I eyeball the amount of noodles to add also.
But for the most part these are the measurements:
1 medium box/bag of macaroni elbows or shells.
Boil noodles 10 minutes
After the bowl is hot, add 1 1/2 sticks of butter until melted.
Then add 1 qt of whole milk
Heat all until almost boiling
Stir until melted completely
Add 1 cup shredded Monterey jack cheese & stir until melted completely
Add 8 oz of soft cream cheese (cut into cubes) & stir until melted completely
Taste and add salt & pepper to taste
You MIGHT need to add more milk to get the consistency you want.
Mix with cooked noodles
Pour all into greased 9 x 13 pan
Sprinkle crumbs over top of mac & cheese
