    Love this, Susan! Serving this old favorite in a new way really makes it fun.

    • Hi Wendy, Thanks, kids just love it this way. It makes it more cool then it already is for them. 🙂

      • Brenda Fite

        My Pastors wife put some in a jar for me to bring home and it sealed it in! Can you can it like that and it last?

        • I’ve never tried it, I usually seal it and then put it in the fridge. They still go pretty fast because they are so good. 🙂

  • Last restaurant I worked in we did a Mac n cheese sorta like this. Mind you we browned the top in an oven close to 500 degrees.

    • Hi Jon, WOW, That is a bit on the high side but if its already cooked then that would be a good thing to brown off the crust. 🙂

  • Looks good but afraid I don’t like Macaroni Cheese !!

    • Aw, too bad, but there are other recipes I know you’ll like that are in the works. 🙂

  • Hubby could practically live on Mac and Cheese so I will have to share this post with him with the hopes that he will try it out 😉

    • Hi Jeri, If he likes Mac and Cheese, then he will love this recipe. Enjoy. 🙂

  • Karen Koblan

    This looks so delicious. I just love serving things in little jars at get togethers…looks so cute and everyone seems to love it. Thanks for this recipe!

    • Hi Karen, Thanks so much. Me too. I have this thing about doing things like this. Party because people love it and the other part is because I do… LOL. 🙂

  • ginavalley

    Such a great idea, Susan! My kids are goingnto love this. Bookmarked!!!

    • Hi Gina, Thanks a bunch. Oh so they will… :-). It is so good for any size kid. 🙂

  • What a great idea to make it in a jar. Makes it look nice and appealing as well.

    • Hi Catarina, Thanks. It was fun to do too. 🙂

  • HB

    Ok, I do love Mac & Cheese and this sound amazing. I really like the jar idea too. 🙂

    • Hi HB, Thanks, it is. The jar idea was just to fun to not try. Enjoy.

  • Julie

    Yum, it’s really hard to beat a good Mac and Cheese. Bookmarked this one.

    • Then you will love this one Julie. Have fin with it. 🙂

  • Devon

    YUM!!! I really want to make these! Adorable AND yummy!!

  • HomeJobsbyMOM

    Now this is a great idea! My kids love mac and cheese especially the little one. I have’t found a homemade recipe I like yet for it though. Maybe this is it

    • Hi Krystle, Your kids may like this one. When it’s in jars like that it gives it a cool kid factor too. 🙂

      • HomeJobsbyMOM

        Yes it does. I could hear them saying why it is in a jar though lol.

        • You gotta love it when kid ask questions like that. 🙂

  • The Desert Rocks

    I had pasta for lunch but I’m still drooling!. Yummy and so cute!

    • Hi Desert Rocks. There is nothing better then a great Mac & Cheese. Give this a try and have fun with them. Thanks for stopping by. 🙂

  • Debra Yearwood

    Mmmmmmm…this looks just delicious. I love the serving size the jar creates too. I love macaroni and cheese and it loves my thighs, so the sserving size matters 🙂

    • Hi Debra, Me to, I can always use some portion control too. Like you, my hips will thank me for it later…. LOL. 🙂

  • Comfort food in a jar! It doesn’t get much better than that. 🙂

    • Hi Cheryl, Yep, it is a great combination. 😀

  • Mary Slagel

    I absolutely love the jar idea. And mac’n’cheese, well you may have just ruined my diet for the day but I am okay with that. I can’t blame you. Mac’n’cheese gets everybody. I use to have a really bad habit of eating Panera mac’n’cheese AT LEAST 3 times a week until I started to gain substantial weight and put two and two together. Now I just use it as a motivation and reward every once in awhile but that is not to say that I don’t want to go home and make that mac’n’cheese immediately. The sadest/best part is I have everything at home to make it. Will Power. Will Power. Will Power. I may cave.. Or I could just wait for my cheat day Saturday. Either way, I will be trying that one day.

    • Hi Mary, I get that about the diet thingy. That’s why I only make it once in a while and in jars to control the potion size… LOL. Sadly, that doesn’t prevent me from eating more then one. 🙂

  • Adrienne Jones

    I love mac & cheese. When my mom and I were still making big meals at Thanksgiving and Christmas we always made homemade macaroni & cheese. I love that even the boxed stuff can easily be added to so you can make a full meal out of it.
    The individual jars is such a cool idea, and it looks delicious!

    • Hi Adrienne, Who doesn’t like Mac & Cheese… LOL. Mac and Cheese is a universal when it comes to comfort food. The jars just a cool factor and portion control. 😀

  • Sandra

    I just love this idea. I’ve got to make it for the grandkids. When do you put the lids on? Is it like canning?

    • Hi Sandra, The Grandkids will love this. It’s not like canning, just a fun way to make Mac & Cheese. You put the lids on after they’ve and cooled.

  • Jesssica

    Great idea! Love this! How long does the mac and cheese stay fresh in the Jars? my husband is the Navy and has wanted me to send him home made mac and cheese, but i would think it wouldn’t stay fresh long enough till it got to him.

    • Thanks Jessica, You could send them with a cold pack overnight (if possible) and I believe it would stay fresh that way. This heats up very well in the microwave or toaster oven. Good luck with this and let me know what happens. 🙂

  • vickie

    Once the mac and cheese is baked, can it be processed either by pressure canning or hot water bath for a shelf life?

  • Pat Ruppel

    Thanks Susan – I knew I could count on you to have a macaroni and cheese recipe when I was looking for one. This one looks good too.
