2 Samuel 17:29 And honey, and butter, and sheep, and cheese of kine, for David, and for the people that were with him, to eat: for they said, The people is hungry, and weary, and thirsty, in the wilderness.
Who doesn’t love mac and cheese?
And I don’t mean the kind from a box (yuck)!
I mean some old-fashioned, down home, southern mac and cheese.
Well, I can tell ya, me and my crew love the latter.
And here is my take on old-fashioned, down home, southern mac and cheese.
I took this to a potluck at church.
What a crowd pleaser it turned out to be!
Your gonna need about 1 and 1/2 to 2 cups macaroni
1/2 lb Velveeta cheese, cubed (I use a generic brand, Best Choice, that I get and IGA. It’s much creamier than Velvetta)
8 ounces cream cheese, cubed
About a 1/2 cup milk
And about 4-6 tablespoons butter (not margarine)
I know, I’m as bad a Paula Deen, but hey the lady knows what’s she’s doing! And it’s just not southern with the real taste of butter!
Cook and drain your macaroni
Place cubed cheese in a large bowl
Pour cooked macaroni over cheese
Pour this mixture back into the pan you cooked your macaroni in and add the milk and butter
Simmer on medium-low heat, stirring frequently, until all cheese and butter has melted
Pour into an oblong glass baking dish
Now your ready to serve to your family or cover and take to a potluck.
If you wanna make it real pretty you can sprinkle just a tad bit of paprika on top. Not too much though, just enough to make it pretty.
