5 different cheeses are melted together in a rich, creamy sauce. The dish is baked and sprinkled with more cheese, giving you a flavor-packed homemade comfort food.
This macaroni and cheese is the extra guest at nearly every Winstead family gathering. Not even the extra guest so much as the guest of honor. It’s requested by most of us as menu item for our birthday dinners, and it’s the perfect complement to my mother-in-law’s homemade chicken nuggets.
I’m not sure where she originally found it, but I am so glad she did.
This recipe uses no fewer than five varieties of cheese. They each pull their weight in a unique and necessary way, from the soft muenster to the sharp cheddar to the creamy Velveeta. Baked together, the cheeses from a sauce that’s thin enough to coat the noodles but thick enough to remind you that you are most definitely not eating blue box.
