Freaktastic Mac & Cheese (named by the kids)

Lori Marie


I am a mother of 3 and married to a farmer...we use products off our farm to cook with. I have been collecting old time recipes for years - trying to teach my kids how it was in the "olden days." This is a family favorite of ours! I believe the time at the dinner table is very important and something that has been lost this day in age. Enjoy!!

How to Make Freaktastic Mac & Cheese (named by the kids)


  • 1In a 9x13 glass dish, lay sliced butter. I put my pan in the oven to melt the butter. Once melted, Layer in order above. Be sure when pouring in milk to pour on the side so you don't push the cheese to the edges.
  • 2Cover and bake at 350 for 1 hr. Remove, give it a good mix and continue to bake uncovered until thick or the consistency you like.
