My Mom’s Homemade Mac ‘n Cheese

Hi friends,

Can you believe December is here!  I feel like we say that every year.  Time please so down so I can soak up these moments a little longer!   We are finished with flag football, and get to slow down a little this month. Hopefully. 😉

Holiday meal planning is something that brings back memories for me.  My mom had the best recipes and the funny part is she never followed a recipe.  It was always a little bit of this and handful of that.   So, getting her to write down a recipe isn’t the easiest thing. ;).  One recipe I love to share this time of year is my mom’s homemade “Macs” aka Mac n’ Cheese.  Funny story, growing up I didn’t know what Kraft “Mac n cheese” was and actually never had it.  This was our Mac n Cheese and a childhood favorite.   My mom would make this dish at every holiday gathering and we all fought for the burnt cheese on the top! 🙂

I am so thankful this dish is now requested at my family gatherings, and now I get to share it with you.

P.S. This dish IS NOT clean. 😉 But it’s so good!

A homemade tradition from our kitchen to yours.


  • 1 package of noodles (thin spaghetti)
  • 1 small block of Velveta Cheese (cubed) **don’t have to use entire block
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 2 eggs
  • salt & pepper
  • 1/8 cup sugar (might not need it all)


Boil noodles based on package directions.  When noodles are done, strain and transfer to 9×13 pyrex dish.  Pour milk into pyrex until about half way up the sides of the dish(give or take the 1 cup).  Add about 4-5 slices of butter into noodles and salt & pepper.  Then add cubes of Velveta Cheese through out your noodles.  Season with salt and pepper and slowly sprinkle in sugar.  (You can finger taste 🙂 ….should taste a little sweetness)  THEN add your raw eggs and mix through out.:)  Place in oven 350 degrees for about 1 hour and half.  Check at 45 minutes and continue checking the last 30 minutes.  When it is bubbling and cheese is browning throughout the dish your “Macs” are done.  **I cook it for the full time because we like burnt cheese on top!


I hope you all enjoy this recipe as much as we do!
