    This old standard recipe is the best. Especially if using Velveeta. I’ve also done this using evaporated milk, white pepper, a touch of cayenne and serving it creamy right out of the sauce pan without baking it.

    I’ve made lots of good Mac and cheese recipes using multiple cheeses but nothing beats plain old velveeta Mac and cheese.

    After finding this recipes a month ago, I’ve made it 6 times. My kids and fiancé LOVE IT. Not exactly Boston Market but the consistancy is similar. This has made its way to my recipe book. Thank you ❤

    I know there is no onion in the Boston Market mac&cheese. Also, there is blue cheese in there somewhere.. which I don’t usually enjoy, but it works well with the other cheeses. Just a suggestion if you were looking to tweak the recipe. 🙂

    This recipe is awesome!!! So tasty, and easy…far less expensive to make than to buy at Boston Market. $28.99 for a catering size is too expensive for the $4.50 worth of ingredients to make this batch of deliciousness.

    I have always like the food at Boston Market I just don’t like that the food is always cold when they serve it. I like my food really hot. So this is great to have this recipe I can make it at home and eat it while its hot!
