I’m going to start this out by saying this Homemade Mac and Cheese is NOT for everyone! I remember one of the first times visiting my in-laws house while we were dating his mom made this homemade Mac and Cheese and I thought it was the weirdest thing ever! Yes, it’s really made with Cheez Whiz… that cheese in dip in a jar.

This dish did eventually grow on me and although we only have it maybe once a year, it is super easy and kids tend to love it, so I thought I would go ahead and share, though I’m pretty sure you can figure out how this is made because it’s just that easy!
