The Best Homemade Mac and Cheese Recipe

Mac and Cheese is a classic comfort food that has stood the test of time. Whether you’re a child or an adult, there’s something about the creamy, cheesy goodness of mac and cheese that makes it a beloved dish. While there are plenty of boxed mac and cheese options available, nothing compares to the taste and quality of a homemade mac and cheese recipe. In this article, we’ll be sharing the best homemade mac and cheese recipe that is sure to become a staple in your kitchen.


  • Elbow macaroni
  • Butter
  • All-purpose flour
  • Whole milk
  • Shredded cheddar cheese
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Salt
  • Pepper

These ingredients are all readily available at your local grocery store and can be easily substituted if needed. For example, if you prefer a different type of cheese or have a dairy allergy, you can easily swap out the milk and cheese for non-dairy alternatives.


  • Cook the macaroni according to the package instructions, and then drain and set aside.
  • In a separate saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat.
  • Once the butter is melted, add in the flour and stir until it forms a paste.
  • Slowly pour in the milk, while continuing to stir.
  • Bring the mixture to a simmer and let it cook for a few minutes until it thickens.
  • Remove the saucepan from heat, and add in the shredded cheddar and mozzarella cheese, along with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Stir until the cheese is fully melted and the sauce is smooth.
  • Add the cooked macaroni to the cheese sauce and stir until the macaroni is fully coated.


The mac and cheese can be served immediately or placed in an oven-safe dish and baked at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until the top are golden brown and bubbly.

For a crispy texture, you can add breadcrumbs or bacon bits on top before baking.

For a stovetop version, heat the mac and cheese over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until it is heated through.
