Bursting with flavor and creamy in texture, this incredible Muenster Mac and Cheese will become your family favorite too!
Macaroni and Cheese is one of my all time favorite foods. Pizza runs a close second! I’m not kidding when I say if I could only eat one food the rest of my life it would be macaroni and cheese. And, I’m not talking about the kind in the blue box. I’m talking homemade white sauce with any blend of creamy cheese! Ahhhh – comfort food at it’s finest!!
My Muenster Mac and Cheese is creamy and mild. Try if for a change.

In the top photo I combine 1/4 cup panko bread crumbs, a pinch or salt and a pinch of pepper with 1 T vegetable. I sprinkled this mixture on top of the pasta and baked.
