Mac & Cheese … Comfort Food Extraordinaire
Posted By Kat Draper On August 1, 2009 @ 10:46 pm In Cheese | 4 Comments
One of the reasons why I love my job is the customers that I get to talk to. We share ideas, stories and often recipes. One of the customers that I have gotten to know loves to cook and often chooses Double Gloucester or Huntsman.
Last month he asked for several different cheeses in small quantities. We got to talking and I learned that he was going to make some Mac and Cheese. He told me that he got the recipe for the Food Network, it had been the winner of a cook-off. The recipe is called Delilah’s 7 Cheese Mac and Cheese, courtesy of Delilah Winder.
This last weekend my husband and I went camping with friends and I made this mac and cheese. It almost filled my Nesco! It was creamy and amazing….comfort food extraordinaire. The only change that I made was using mascarpone (8oz) in place of the… (dare I say it…..velveeta) the mascarpone brought the smoothness to the mixture, I believe that cream cheese would also work just fine.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Cook macaroni to al dente, about 10 min. Drain and set aside to keep warm.
Whisk eggs in a large bowl until frothy.
Add the velveeta (or mascarpone), butter and 2 cup of half-and-half to the large bowl of eggs. Add warm macaroni tossing until the cheese has melted and the mixture is smooth. Ad the remaining half-and-half, 3 cups of the sharp yellow cheddar, and the remaining cheeses, salt and pepper, tossing until completely combined in the large bowl.
Pour the mixture into 9×13 casserole or baking dish and bake 30 minutes. Sprinkle with the remaining 1 cup of sharp yellow cheese and bake until golden brown on top, about 30 minutes more.
