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!

My Mom's Mac n' Cheese
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!
