velveeta-mac-and-cheese-22Insanely Cheesy And Creamy Mac & Cheese– This is mac and cheese on steroids! Decadently cheesy, totally creamy and rich, this is probably the best mac and …

Yield :

      • Makes 4serving .

Ingredients :

      • 2 lbs macaroni
      • 20 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, freshly grated (don’t use the preshredded)
      • 20 ounces Monterey Jack cheese, freshly grated (don’t use the preshredded
      • 2 lbs Velveeta, cubed
      • 2 1/2 cups milk (use whole for this or 2%. There is really no use using skim or 1%. I mean… really… with all the cheese?)
      • 4 eggs, well beaten
      • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
      • salt and pepper to taste

Preparation :

  • Cook your pasta, drain well and set aside.
  • While it’s cooking, combine your cheddar and Monterey jack cheeses in a large bowl. Set aside.
  • Pour your milk into a medium, preferably non stick, pot. Over medium heat, bring the milk to a simmer.
  • Add in the Velveeta cheese and stir constantly until smooth and completely melted.
  • Take about 1/2 cup of the hot milk/cheese mixture and SLOWLY drizzle it into the bowl of beaten eggs, whisking with a fork constantly. When you have it all tempered, slowly pour the egg mixture back into the milk mixture, again stirring constantly.
  • Butter a 4 to 6 quart baking dish (this has been edited since I first posted this as I have been told by people that that wasn’t big enough. So I came to check because I wasn’t sure why they were saying I said 3 quart and saw that I, in my idiocy, didn’t realize I had typed 3 and not four. I’m so sorry!!) and preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Don’t use a smaller one… this makes a LOT of mac and cheese. Pour half of the pasta into the dish.
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper and layer the sliced butter all over the top.
  • Sprinkle half of the cheddar/jack cheese mixture over the top of the pasta, then pour half of the hot milk/cheese mixture over the top. Repeat this layering one more time.
  • Bake at 350 until mac and cheese is bubbly and lightly browned, about 30 minutes.
