Freezing macaroni & Cheese?

Hannele BennettApril 22, 2001

I am looking for a macaroni and cheese recipe that I can freeze in single serving sizes. This would make a good snack item for the teens. Does anyone know how the commercial products are prepared? They all seem to be so creamy and the texture is good.

Any help will be be greatly appreciated.

Hannele, I just make it from scratch...Make a thinner white sauce befor adding the cheese and it tastes like Stouffer's.
'cause I know the macaroni does absorb some liquid, bake it and after it's cool, portion it in the glad lock thingys and freeze...

I am told that if you are freezing macaroni it it best to cook it "al dente" instead of that perfect pasta point. That way when it is thawed it won't be mushy. Works good for me...I just cook it till it is almost done and rinse it in cold water to stop the cooking.

I found this Mac & Cheese recipe awhile back on the web,and it's the best recipe I've tried yet.
~Mac & Cheese~
1 cup cooked macaroni
1 cup cottage cheese
1 cup sour cream
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese
1 cup Velveta cheese,cut up in cubes.

Mix all ingredients,Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes,til bubbly. If desired,sprinkle crushed Ritz cracker crumbs over top.

I make this in individual casseroles,and I have frozen them very succesfully.

That recipe was put up on one of the cooking forums a while back by Hazel and has since made the rounds. I, too, have adopted this as my recipe, and it is absolutely delicious! Now when we have a potluck supper, I am always asked to bring this.

Polkadot, That's where I got the Mac & cheese recipe from,one of the cooking forums,but I couldn't remember which one. I just LOVE this recipe. I try mostly,to use the low fat sour cream and cottage cheese,and the velveta. I've never tried it using the no fat cheeses, but thought I might experiment sometime.
