Oven Baked Macaroni and Cheese

Many moons ago, back when I posted one of my own recipes a week…I posted my Crock Pot Macaroni and Cheese Recipe.  It’s a favorite of mine.  But every now and then – you don’t want to wait ALL day for your Macaroni and Cheese to cook!  So I’m thankful today for Janelle (from Comfy In the Kitchen) who has an awesome Oven Baked Macaroni and Cheese recipe!  The ultimate in comfort food!  Janelle writes:

There are so many different ways to prepare Mac n Cheese…different cheeses, different methods of cooking, even different noodles! This is my family’s recipe…it is very simple, creamy, and oh so yummy! This dish is made at most of our family gatherings because it is easy to double.  Enjoy!

Melt together butter, cream, milk, salt and pepper over med heat

Add Velveeta

Stir well until melted 

In boiling water, add 2 cups of dry macaroni and cook until al dente (soft/firm- not mushy) 

“Pam” a dish with high sides (DO NOT use a 9×13 pan)

Drain macaroni (Do not rinse!)

Add macaroni into pot with cheese sauce and stir (it will seem runny, but it thickens as it bakes)

Place uncovered in oven set at 350 and bake for 35-45 mins

AHhhhhhhh…..Comfort Food bliss!!

    So I ended up making this and my hubby and I both loved it! And it was so easy! Today I mixed it with homemade chili for lunch, which was also great! Thanks for sharing! I’m adding it to my new list of faves!

    I’m so glad to see this recipe and see the word “creamy”! LOL
    I have made SO many oven recipes that are supposed to turn out great mac and cheese and to me I’m thinking this stuff is not creamy and cheesy it’s too dry, and never mind leftovers….. Can’t wait to try yours!

    Followed the recipe as given and the family really liked it a lot. Thick and creamy and easy to make. The second time I made it I added 1/4 t dry mustard, a cup of cubed ham and 1/2 of grated carrot for an amazing casserole. Thanks so much for sharing
