This is my guy's absolute favorite comfort food especially during the Winter months, but surely a crowd-pleaser at any holiday party or special family dinner. My Dad (my worst critic) said it's the best he's ever had! Say 'more cheese please'!

How to Make Joe's MagicRoni & Cheese

Step-by-Step

  1. 1)Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add macaroni and cook for 8 minutes. Drain well and return to the pot. Add 1 stick of butter and mix well into macaroni.

    2)In a large bowl, combine all of the shredded cheeses and cubed Velveeta cheese. Mix the cheeses well together, then add it to the macaroni & butter and mix well. Cheeses will not melt into macaroni but should be mixed in evenly.

    3)Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

    4)In a medium bowl, combine the whole milk, eggs, mustard, and the salt & pepper - Mix well. Pour this mixture onto the macaroni & cheese dish. Be sure to coat all of the macaroni and cheeses with wet mixture. Add chopped onions. Mix well but gently to avoid breaking macaronis. Transfer to a lightly greased (I use cooking spray) 2 ½” deep quart casserole dish or 9x13 baking dish/Pyrex.

    5)Bake for 40 minutes or until hot and bubbling golden brown around the edges. For the last 5 minutes of baking, sprinkle top with Italian bread crumbs & grated parmesan cheese to your taste.

    When Joe's MagicRoni & Cheese is removed from the oven, I usually let it sit 5-10 minutes before serving & enjoying it's cheesy goodness.
