I have done the search and looked through some of the recipes.
I would appreciate seeing your favorite recipe, either oven or smoker.
Here is one we love - we have done it for wedding rehersals and for a catered dinner - Hope you like it
7 Cheese Mac and Cheese
Prep Time: 30 min
Cook Time: 1 hr 10 min
Serves: 6 servings
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Add the macaroni and cook until slightly al dente, about 10 minutes. Drain and set aside to keep warm.
Whisk the eggs in a large bowl until frothy.
Add the Velveeta, butter and 2 cups of the half-and-half to the large bowl of eggs. Add the warm macaroni tossing until the cheese has melted and the mixture is smooth. Add the remaining half-and-half, 3 cups of the sharp yellow Cheddar, the remaining grated cheeses, and salt and pepper, tossing until completely combined in the large bowl.
Pour the mixture into 9 by 13-inch casserole or baking dishes (approximately 3 (3-quart) baking dishes) and bake for 30 minutes. Sprinkle with the remaining 1 cup of sharp yellow cheese and bake until golden brown on top, about 30 minutes more.
Not for the heat impaired but can be adjusted. Enjoy!
How do you like your Mac 'n Cheese? Simple and Traditional...Creamy or set Firm...Crumb top or Cheese top...Just Cheese or kicked up with Stuff mixed in? I could use a little more detail...JJ
The best mac & cheese recipe I have ever tasted is the original one from Velveta.
It is very time consuming to make, but it is well worth the trouble.
This recipe is probably the one my Mother used to make 50 years ago.
The recipe can be found on the back of a Velveta box.
We like to smoke it, but it's just as good cooked in the oven.
This is my current favorite. Found it on Epicurious not so long ago and it gets rave reviews from my family and everyone who's tried it. It scales pretty well for larger batches and is very easy to prepare.
