How To Make Stouffer's Mac and Cheese (Copycat)

This copycat Stouffer's mac and cheese dish mixes whole milk and 2 kinds of cheese for a creamy & rich bite that's ready in 35 minutes.

Prep: 5 mins
Cook: 30 mins
Total: 35 mins


  • 1 lb elbow macaroni
  • 8 tbsp butter
  • 1⁄4 cup flour
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 5 cups whole milk
  • lbs sharp cheddar cheese, (about 5 cups) shredded
  • ½ lb American cheese , (about 9 slices)
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the pasta to al dente, drain.
  2. In a large saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Sprinkle the flour over and whisk in. Cook the roux for 1 to 2 minutes to cook off the raw flour taste.

  3. Slowly whisk in the milk until smooth. Simmer until slightly thickened, whisking occasionally so the bottom doesn't burn.

  4. Add the cheese, 1 handful at a time, whisking well after each one and not adding any more cheese until the previous handful is fully melted and incorporated. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  5. Add the drained pasta to the cheese sauce and stir to combine.
  6. Pour into a 9x13-inch dish. If desired, bake at 375 for 15 to 20 minutes.

  7. Serve and enjoy.
