The Outback Steakhouse Outback Steakhouse Mac-A-Roo is a macaroni and cheese recipe many people have requested in the past. The recipe is only on the children’s menu, but why should children have all of the fun? I hate to say it, but when I order takeout, I will add in an order of their macaroni and cheese so I can have some at home.
Outback Steakhouse Mac A Roo N Cheese
If you need to reheat this later, the macaroni and cheese can be made creamy again by adding more heavy cream. Honestly, you can use milk for this recipe, but the results are much creamier when you use heavy cream. I have also made this with half and half and whole milk with good results.
This recipe is very simple to make. You basically need to cook pasta and add Velveeta cheese and heavy cream. Really, that is all there is to this recipe.
Do you have any interesting stories or experiences of you ordering off the children’s menu? In addition to ordering this via takeout, I have also been guilty of ordering the peanut butter and jelly kids’ combo at Panera Bread. I never keep bread in my house, because I don’t eat a whole loaf before it goes stale, so for me, a freshly made peanut butter and jelly sandwich is a treat. What are your guilty pleasures from a children’s menu?

Recipe Tips for the Cook
- If you pick up a block of Velveeta cheese, make sure you cut it into small pieces to make it easier to melt in the saucepan.
- While melting the cheese and heavy cream together, keep the heat on low. You will not want this to boil or burn.
- Make a big batch of the Mac A Roo -- it will never go to waste and it re-heats nicely for other meals.
