Kraft Deluxe Macaroni and Cheese
When you hear “macaroni and cheese” the first thing that pops into your mind is Kraft’s Macaroni and Cheese. It’s rich. It’s creamy. It’s love at first bite. This delicious dish is made with real cheese and hearty elbow macaroni that help you enjoy more cheese with every bite. This two-cheese blend is more of a home-style mac and cheese than the regular boxed version with the powdered cheese sauce.
Bring 2 qts. water to a boil over high heat. Add 2 cups elbow macaroni or small shells. Cook until al dente; you don’t want it mushy.
Meanwhile, begin your creamy cheese sauce.
Combine in small saucepan:
1/3 c. shredded Cheddar cheese
½ c. Cheez Whiz**
2 T. whole milk
Place over medium-low heat, stirring (you do not want to burn this!) to melt.
Add: ¼ t. salt
Continue stirring until smooth; cover until macaroni is cooked.
Once the macaroni is cooked, drain well – do not rinse. Add to pan of cheese sauce; blend well.
Makes about 4 cups.
**For those that prefer their own homemade Cheez Whiz I have posted that:
and I included a recipe for Velveeta as well.
Cheez Whiz changed their formula - there is no cheese in it anymore - I liked the old Cheez Whiz - the recipe I posted is made with real cheese.
And I included the recipe for homemade Velveeta.
