I started to use velveeta after I watched a mac and cheese throwdown on FoodTV.

Delilah's 7 Cheese Mac and Cheese Recipe : : Food Network


I don't use her recipe but I do usually use at least three kinds of cheese.

No eggs!!

I loved Velveeta when I was a little girl. and it does melt beautifully. However, I have a fairly high degree of lactose intolerance, and whey is a big precipitator of "problems." Since Velveeta has a large proportion of whey in it, I try to stay away from it as much as possible. which is to say that I never purchase it any more.

Mine's technically broiled, not baked, but I think it's close enough.
Macaroni and Cheese

Yeah - that eggs thing is really different. I loved in North Carolina for a while and the old timers there make mac n cheese with essentially a custard with shredded cheese added. It's baked and hot and cheesy - just texturally challenging the first time you try it if you were raised on the bechemel based version. I learned to like it - in fact even love it. It's pasta, cheese, milk and eggs - how could it be bad really?
