Cheesy Macaroni and Cheese – I come from a big family of Velveeta Cheese lovers. Moreover, Jimmie does, too. If you’re not of like mind, this post probably isn’t for you. Check out my category dropdown menu in the top right corner for other amazing side dishes from Culinary Craftiness! However, if you’re eating keto or low carb, this Keto Cheesy Cauliflower Bake, it isn’t made with Velveeta! 😉
I’ve been making homemade mac & cheese like this all my cooking life, exactly like my momma did (unless we’re making baked mac & cheese. That’s a whole ‘nother recipe). One day a few weeks ago, I thought it would be interesting to see how the addition of Monterey Jack cheese would make it taste (mostly because I had a block that needed to be used). Turns out the guys loved it! However, if you don’t have Monterey Jack or any other kind of cheese you think might be good in this recipe, don’t sweat it. This mac & cheese is great with just Velveeta.

Cheesy Macaroni and Cheese is such a versatile side. And it can even be turned into a one pot meal by including a good protein that pairs well with it. Smoked sausage is always a good one (our favorite is Eckridge). Additionally, crisped bacon and browned bulk sausage.
