I call this our Holiday Macaroni and Cheese because as I talk to friends and see the pictures of all their family holiday dinners I notice that is seems just about everyone has macaroni and cheese on the menu. I noticed it in almost every picture that wasn’t a brunch picture on Easter Sunday. Almost every Thanksgiving photo has it too. It is usually the big 13 x 9 pan or the super big aluminum foil pans for large crowds, not the stove top creamy macaroni and cheese but more the southern style custardy-like dish.
With the cold weather hanging on here in the Midwest this is a perfect dish for holidays or warming comfort food!
This is my family’s hand down favorite macaroni and cheese that I make. It doesn’t hurt that the amount of cheese is just about double what I usually use! Let this dish set a bit before you serve it and it will cut easily into nice squares. We were in too much of a hurry to eat so we just scooped it out of the pan.
Yes, the recipe really is 16 oz of macaroni AND 16 oz of cheese. You can change the cheeses (texture will be different) and the pasta shapes to what your family will like.
