Triple Cheese Mac – Gooseberry Patch Recipe #7

If you saw the cheese drawer in my fridge you would say that we probably have a cheese problem. So, to say we love macaroni and cheese would also be an understatement. A large one. Which makes recipe #7 from Farmer’s Market Favorites in the Gooseberry Patch/Real Farmwives of America in the kitchen project a no brainer. 

Triple Cheese Mac. 

Start by getting some water boiling to cook a 16 ounce package of macaroni. I must admit, I was out of elbow macaroni so I cooked up rotini pasta. Then start on the cheese mixture. You can see by the recipe that there is all sort of creamy goodness.

Over a medium heat whisk together butter (I don’t ever have margarine. I only allow butter in this house. You know the real stuff that is made from real cream.), garlic, and flour.

When it has formed a paste, add the milk, mustard and salt and pepper to taste. I personally add the milk slowly. About a third to a half a cup at a time to heat the milk more quickly rather than dumping it all in together.

Cook until thickened and smooth. I usually have a rule of thumb being let it boil for about a minute before removing from heat. Then start adding the cheese. Beginning with the cheddar.

Then the shredded American also know as Velveeta.

Then some Parmesan cheese

When the cheese is melted, pour the cooked, drained pasta into the cheese sauce. Pour into a greased 13 X 9 pan.

Then sprinkle with bread crumbs. The recipe didn’t call for melted butter to be mixed into the bread crumbs, but I would melt a tablespoon and then mix the bread crumbs into it before sprinkling over top of the macaroni.

Then bake for about 35 minutes on 350 degrees.

Serve with a great cheese drenched burger. And lick the pan clean!

    Oh man, my kids would love this! We too have a huge cheese problem. So much so that we are becoming cheese snobs and buy it in bulk when we drive by a dairy farm on the way to and from my parents house in Indiana (Fair Oaks Farm).

    Thanks for sharing a great recipe,
    Aimee

    I'm not really a mac-n-cheese fan, but I'm so going to make this one! It looks super yummy!

    And I think the unusual noodles work to make it an adult meal…

    Do you think that they will ever invent pages that we can eat and actually taste the food?
    I am a cheesey kinda girl so this is right up my alley, thanks for a great looking recipe!

    Oh my goodness. It's one in the morning, and I should be going to bed, but instead I'm looking at your delicious food and my stomach is grumbling – because, well, there's NOTHING better than mac & cheese – it's totally one of my favorite, favorite foods! I (surprisingly!) have all the ingredients for this, and will totally be making it in the morning!
