Soul food macaroni and cheese recipe

THE mac & cheese recipe!

I’m the designated person in my family to make mac & cheese.  So no matter the function, I know what I’m bringing & that its going to be banging!  I want to share my recipe, its really simple, but I don’t actually follow it, lol!  If I get a chance to get down to Findlay market, I go crazy over different fresh cheeses to try.  One of my faves is smoked mozzerella.  I sometimes add different spices, namely onion and garlic powder to give it more kick, so each time its a little bit different, but it always comes out delicious!



  • 4 cups macaroni, uncooked
  • 8 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 3 cups milk
  • 2 cups mozzarella
  • 4 cups cheddar


  1. Preheat oven to 350.  Grease a 9×13 dish.
  2. Cook macaroni, In salted water for 1-2 minutes less than instructions, or al dente.  Be careful not to overcook.  Drain.
  3. Place macaroni, butter, seasonings, milk, mozzarella and 3 cups of cheddar into dish and stir.
  4. Mix eggs in a bowl, then stir into the mixture.
  5. Cover with greased aluminum foil and cook for 45 minutes.
  6. Uncover and stir, then add last cup of cheddar.  Bake uncovered for 15 more minutes.  Enjoy!

  1. I use evaporated milk in my mac and cheese is that the milk you used? It looks delish and what brands of cheese do you use? I find some types of cheese dont melt very well.

    1. Thanks! I use vitamin D milk. My fav brand of cheese is Sargento. It’s a little pricy, but melts great & isn’t too oily.
