How to make it

  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain well and return to cooking pot.
  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt 8 tablespoons butter; stir into the macaroni.
  • In a large bowl, combine the Muenster cheese, mild and sharp Cheddar cheeses, and Monterey Jack cheese; mix well.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • Add the half and half, 1 1/2 cups of cheese mixture, cubed processed cheese food, dry mustard and eggs to macaroni; mix together and season with salt and pepper.
  • Transfer to a lightly greased deep 2 1/2 quart casserole dish. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup of cheese mixture and 1 tablespoon of butter.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 35 minutes or until hot and bubbling around the edges.
  • Serve and enjoy!

    My mother ALWAYS used velveeta in her mac & cheese along with cheddar & parmesan and it was great. Some things only velveeta can do. I am making this for the grandchildren tomorrow using halloween shaped pasta. I can't wait.

    I just had another look at this recipe and had to tell you how much I love it. I also loved the way you posted options for other cheeses to calm all those V snobs.

    Made this for the party this past weekend. It came out great, cheesy, creamy, and so yummy! Because we had a lot of kids coming, I added kielbasa to it, which is more kid friendly. Unfortunately, I didn't have time to take a picture of a tray, but the next day I took a picture of it in a plate (well, whatever was left of it, anyway). This one is definitely a keeper!

    Making this now. Using provolone instead of cheddar. Using smoked mozzarella instead of meunster. Ran 1 oz shy of Velveeta. Made up for it with havarti with dill. Thank Julia Child I had the sharp cheddar. Oops, used colby jack instead of monterey jack.

    Using 1 pound of andouille smoked sausage.

    Hey Vickie... Well, you know me, always a day late and a dollar short...... ;-)~ I made this quite sometime ago for a family get together. It was awesome. The cheese combination gives all different textures from creamy to crusty to stringy. As you suggested, I added some chopped Jalapeno and smoked sausage. It was gobbled up so fast I ran out.....;-)~ I posted this in the "I Made It" group. Wish I had taken a photo but your photo pretty much says it all..... Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe...... Jim

    We had this last week and it was really good. The hubby couldn't find the Muenster cheese because he didn't go to the deli ;) so I doubled the Monterey Jack cheese.

    Great recipe! Velveeta makes it so creamy so you don't have to thicken... I also make is just with the cheeses for grandkids...

    Thank you for your "Velveeta Snob..." comment. I run into them often although I think that there's a whole bunch of closet Velveeta eaters out there. I don't normally rate recipes until I actually try them but that comment rates a 5 by itself. - - - - All of you who love this recipe, come join the new VELVEETA group.
