Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and transfer the pasta to a 9x13-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.

This is, BY FAR, the best macaroni and cheese recipe ever! I have been searching forever for one that is even remotely cheesy creamy. It is a huge hit wherever I take it. After making it as written the first time, I tweaked it a bit. Instead of the evaporated milk, I used 3 cups of whole milk. I also used 1/2 cup of sour cream. I cooked the mac. Melted the butter in a large pan and added 1/4 cup of flour to make a roux. I then added the milk, 1/2# colby, 1/2# sharp cheddar, 1# of Velveeta (needed for creaminess), the eggs(beat before adding), the sugar, 1/2 cup of sour cream, salt and pepper. I stirred until it was a creamy cheese sauce. The... read more
I made this for our family's Christmas party and it was a BIG hit. I did add 1/4 sour cream to the top of it. It was so good, people were taking it home afterwards! I highly recommend this recipe!
omg what can i say the very very best i also added sour cream
made 2012 turkey day my 15 year old daughter said this is the only thing she wants for christmas dinner .
I saw this recipe on Food Network's DDD, and tried to write the recipe down but didn't quite make it, so I looked it up and found this one. OMG, it was so good. Like others have said, on DDD she added sour cream, so I did too. I made this for Thanksgiving dinner and converted the recipe for 25 people, in that recipe, I added 1 cup of sour cream and it really makes a difference. Everyone loved it - even my youngest son who only likes Kraft blue box (yuk, compared to this). I am so glad I found this recipe, this will be the families go to for Mac & Cheese, thats what my husband says anyway! Thanks
I watch the DDD with Sweetie Pie and had to rush to write down the recipe. She did use sour cream and for those of you mentioned(it's not listed in the recipe). And for those that said you didn't see her use evaporated milk, if you look closely---she poured milk out of a jug and then out of the gallon container. She does use 2 different types of milk. Tried this recipe a few times, cut down on some of the cheese (not the type, just the amounts) and it has been the best recipe to date. Fantastic!
this was the best i cant get enough i give this a 10000 if i could be able to i would eat this nonstop
Best MAC and Cheese I have ever made. It added some of my ingredients as well, but still your recipe got me started. I almost did not taste it, as my 4 boys and 3 girls devoured it. Need them to get the hell outta dodge and go back to College, so I can make another one for my husband and I, without the rat race.
Thanks Ms. Robbie!!!!!!
It was rich and decadent. I was a little concerned about the sugar at first but you can't even taste it. I have tried several macaroni and cheese recipes, in the past and by far this was the best one ever. My sister used this recipe first for a holiday and she did an awesome job making it so I wanted to try the recipe before I make it for Easter..Thanks, sis!
Made it for the first time for my famiy Christmas dinner and it was fabulous! I actually made 2 types of mac and cheese; Sweetie Pie's and my regular version. Needless to say, the regular version got thrown out with the rest if the Christmas leftovers. I will admit it was a little greasy with the butter and all the velveeta, but my family loved it!
This is the best mac and cheese I have ever had!!! Someone made this for a work luncheon and everyone commented how delicious it is!
Just so you all know, it's supposed to be 1/2 pound colby jack shredded, not 1/2 colby and 1/2 jack. that will help with some of the too much cheeseyness. also as someone else mentioned, the foodnetwork episode mentioned sourcream. well, for this recipe, its supposed to be 1 heaping tablespoon sour cream(and i mean really heaping). hope this helped!
My, oh my, soooooooo good. It's worth every calorie. This is better than my mom used to make! Creamy, delicious, full of good cheesy flavor. I'll make this again and again (as the calories will allow).
It was a pretty decent recipe overall, i can admit i did not like how runny it was maybe cut down on the milk and the butter, milk to 2 cups and butter to 1/2 a cup reduce the amount of velveeta to half a pound and increase other shredded cheese mixtures if you would like a more settled baked macaroni i also added 4 eggs instead.
Very good but a little too much cheese for me. Will leave out some of the cheese next time, maybe some of the Velveeta.
