Creamy Baked Mac and Cheese: Thanksgiving Side

Creamy Baked Mac and Cheese for Thanksgiving

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend! We’ve had a busy weekend preparing for all of our Thanksgiving week festivities. Yes, Thanksgiving week. We will be going non-stop, with very little sleep, from Wednesday through Friday. I may not get this Creamy Baked Mac and Cheese on Thanksgiving, so I’m bring it to work for our little Thanksgiving Potluck so I get to enjoy it.

By the way, I’m not being secretive about what we’re doing for Thanksgiving or anything. I will probably write a post on everything we did Friday or Monday of next week. I’m really excited about our plans!

I changed things up with my usual recipe this time because it’s usually good, but I knew it could be better. I used a mixture of several different kinds of cheese because that’s what I had on hand and it is perfect. I used Kraft’s Triple Cheddar (1/2 cup), Italian Five Cheese (1/2 cup), and Sharp Cheddar (1 cup). If you aren’t a fan of Sharp Cheddar, just replace it with Mild.



What’s your favorite comfort food? Is Baked Mac and Cheese on your Thanksgiving Menu? What is your family doing for Thanksgiving this year?

  1. We don’t typically serve Mac ‘n Cheese on Thanksgiving (with 2 young kids it’s served too regularly as it is!), but this recipe sounds delicious. I’m a fan of sharp cheddar…so this recipe is right up my alley. Thanks for sharing!

      Guess I never thought of that. All you Mom’s may be burnt out on Mac & Cheese! Lucas hasn’t really reached the Mac & Cheese phase yet, so we still love it. I love sharp cheddar too!
