  • 8 oz Velveeta cheese sliced into 1/2" thickness, 1/2 block
  • 4 cups milk 2% or higher
  • 1 tsp table salt
  • 1 tsp dry mustard powder
  • 2 cups macaroni uncooked
  • 4 tbsp salted butter sliced into 1/2"thickness
  • 2 cups shredded cheese


  • Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
  • Spray a 9x13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  • In the bottom of your baking dish, mix together milk with salt and dry mustard powder.
  • Pour in uncooked macaroni (spread it out.)
  • Then add slices of Velveeta & 1 cup mixed cheeses into baking dish (spread it out.)
  • Top with slices of butter (pushing them down a bit under the milk.)
  • Cover with aluminum foil and bake for about 50-60 minutes (until macaroni is cooked and most of the liquid has been absorbed).
  • Oven times vary so check it around the 40 minute mark.
  • Take it out of the oven, remove foil, and top with another cup (or so) of shredded cheddar cheese.
  • Put it back in the oven (uncovered) for another 10-15 minutes (until cheese is melted.)
