Super Cheesy Baked Velveeta Mac and Cheese

Traci Coleman


This is one of my all time, most favorite dishes. As long as I can remember, my mom and grandma have fixed this recipe - and we always have it at Thanksgiving and Chrismas dinners (my hubby thinks that's weird, but what does he know? hehe).

Please note that the measurements are estimated for the milk/cheese, etc. We've always just made it without having a written recipe.
