Marcy’s Thanksgiving Mac & Cheese

Jump to recipe

This is my daughter-in-law Marcy … along with my son Draylen, and my grandbaby Ole.

One thing that we discovered about Marcy early on, is that she is not a fan of most traditional Thanksgiving foods.

A couple of years ago, I found out the kids were going to be coming up for Thanksgiving and since I knew this little tidbit of information about our darling Marcy, I wanted to make sure that she had something that she would like to dive into at dinner as well.

So …. I did what any good mother-in-law would do and I called my son to find out what her favorite food was. (That’s not cheating, right?!)  As it turns out, she loves macaroni & cheese.

I had never made a homemade mac & cheese before, but thought I would give it a whirl, and pray that it turned out! lol

I read through a ton of different recipes, and they were all slightly different in their own way, so once I had the gist of what to do, I jumped in.

I decided to start with a base like I would use for my homemade Alfredo sauce (a roux), and then worked my way from there. Believe it or not, it turned out deliciously on the first try! Thankfully, I had written down what I added as I went …. just in case it was good and I would want it to use for future Thanksgiving dinners.

I thought I would share my recipe today. I have lovingly dubbed it Marcy’s Mac & Cheese, as that is how I always think of it when I get the urge to bake up a pan.

I hope you enjoy it as much as we all did!

      Hey Carla! Long time, no see! Kind of crazy to go through so many years of life without making a homemade mac & cheese, but I’m glad I tried it. It’s now going to be a staple holiday food for us. I hope you like it!
