Macaroni and Cheese


I have previously posted two different Macaroni and Cheese recipes; one of which was a Crock Pot recipe. There are so many tasty ways to cook up Mac & Cheese, so I thought I would post another very tasty recipe. Besides – homemade Mac & Cheese is always the best! When visiting my in-laws last week, my MIL served us her version of Macaroni and Cheese and I loved it. I can’t decide which recipe I like better! Perhaps I should cook them all up one day and have a taste off. How about you give them a try, and let me know which you think is the best! I linked to the other recipes below.

  • I have always put the Worcestershire sauce, and dry mustard in mine,my mom did too. And so much better with different kinds of cheeses. When I have leftover “blocks” of cheese I keep them in the freezer for this dish, thats when I make it when i have saved enough chese. LOL

  • MUST MUST try! I could live on this stuff, see what you did? You made me want this at 11 o’clock at night LOL Thanks, def gonna try this!

  • I think the addition of mustard and Worcertershire would give Mac and Cheese a great, grown-up flavor! Looking forward to trying this one.
