I might be a bit biased but I think it should be called Award-Winning Mac and Cheese but to each his own! It was the first and only cooking contest I have entered. It was a little nerve-racking, but a lot of fun!

Well, this one does…..milk, all the kinds of cheeses, whole cream and butter!

Similar to my Creamy Crock Pot Mac and Cheese, this is the oven version and is so worth just the little bit of extra effort!

It goes so well with so many meals:

I would also be perfect with ham chunks in it to make it a one-dish meal!
