I make this when I'm feeding a crowd. Holidays, large family dinners or sports dinners. Everyone loves it! This recipe doubles well and you can use different cheeses or all the same. It all works.

How to Make Four Cheese Mac and Cheese

Step-by-Step

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook according to package directions - al dente. Do not overcook. Melt 4 tbsp of butter and stir into macaroni.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the cheeses and mix well. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  3. To the pasta add the half and half, 1 1/2 cups of the cheese mixture and cubed velveeta. Mix together and season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a lightly greased deep casserole dish. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup of cheese mixture.
  4. Bake in preheated oven uncovered for 35 minutes or until hot and bubbling around the edges. Enjoy.

    I sometimes toast about 1/2 - 3/4 cup panko with a couple of tablespoons of butter and put that over top for added crunchiness.
