Here is some creamy, cheesy, delicious macaroni and cheese from a famous St. Louis soul food eatery! It is hard to turn down a comfort food like this one. Try it—you’ll see what I mean.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound elbow macaroni pasta
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 cans (12 ounce) evaporated milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup butter (2 sticks) cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 pound Colby cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 pound Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 pound sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 pound Velveeta cheese, cut into small chunks
  • Salt, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon white pepper
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 cup shredded American or Mild Cheddar cheese

Instructions

Heat oven to 350F.  Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and transfer the pasta to a 9×13-inch casserole dish. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the whole milk, evaporated milk and eggs. Mix with a fork until thoroughly combined. Add the butter and Colby, Monterey Jack, Sharp Cheddar, and Velveeta cheeses to the pasta. Pour the milk and egg mixture over the pasta. Season with salt, pepper and sugar, and toss. Sprinkle the top of the pasta with the remaining cup of American or Cheddar cheese. Bake for 30 to 45 minutes (or until the top is lightly golden brown).

    I made this with my own touch for easter and everyone loved it.

    Sweetie Pie’s recipe calls for sour cream…so in essence your recipe is not a copycat.

  • MrsCurrGill

    Ive made this several times and its a hit, but i never used white pepper either nor the velveeta…i use cracked black pepper and replace the velveeta with another type of shredded cheese. I love it!

    • Michelle Wilson

      I did too, and it turned out perfect. Next time I will add a little sour cream in it.

    Hi, it’s me again. I should have mentioned I did’t use “white pepper.” I used “black pepper” to taste. Other than that, I followed the recipe … and it was PERFECT!

    THE BEST! Made it last year for Thanksgiving after seeing her restaurant on “Diner’s Drive-Inn’s and Dive’s.” It was a hit with my family … who are picky eaters and usually don’t like much of nothing. :o)

    • MsDeborah

      I did the same and everyone loved it!

    Once you’ve had real homemade mac and cheese, the orangy looking box mix will never be the same! Plenty of cheese and buttered crumbs on top. We even made it for our Christmas dinner one year!

    I hated the White Pepper in this. I found another one by the same chef, but without the White Pepper and with 1 cup of sour cream. Got to be better!

      I never would have thought a small amount of white pepper could have turned someone off so much. Often spicier notes are used in Mac and Cheese to enhance its flavor.

      I agree

    I made this tonight as a trial for my Labor Day cookout and OMG it is so yummy! The creamiest mac and cheese I’ve ever had!

  • Donna

    I have never made a baked macaroni and cheese before ( only from the box )and have been anxious to make one so I finally got to try this one last night for dinner. Everyone loved it!! They said it’s a keeper! Will def make this again.
