Mom’s Classic Gooey White Cheddar Macaroni And Cheese Recipe Is Legit Off The Charts Delicious

white cheddar macaroni and cheese

I could not believe how creamy that Cracker Barrel sauce is, and this one is just as good.  It is rich and full of real cheese that makes the flavors even better.  It is the perfect recipe for kids or a fancy Thanksgiving meal. I have some friends who went to Mexico over the holidays and they got to eat Mexican macaroni and cheese. The white cheese was actually queso. My pals said it was the best thing ever!

Can you imagine getting the full experience over in Mexico? I think it would make it even yummier!  But do not despair, you can have this awesomeness right from the comfort of your home!
