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.

  1. Cook and drain macaroni according to pacage directions.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°. Butter 2 1/2 quart baking dish.
