Dana Dishes: Mama's Mac and Cheese

By Dana Berlin
On February 2, 2012


I have grown up with some special dishes my mom has engineered in her kitchen.   She has never ceased to keep my belly filled, and has always kept my taste buds surprised. 

This Macaroni & Cheese dish is great for family dinners, potluck style gatherings, or a simple comfort food in the middle of the day.  This recipe makes 8 servings, but just like any other dish, it depends on who is eating it. 

Basics: Bake at 350 for about 50-55 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly.  The dairy ingredients used are whole milk styles, but can be substituted with 1% or skim for people on diets. 


2 packages (8 oz ea) ELBOW macaroni 

2 pounds cream style Cottage Cheese.

1 cups Sour Cream 

2 eggs

1  teaspoons salt

 teaspoon pepper

1 tablespoon grated onion

4 cups grated cheese

2 cloves garlic (or 2 teaspoons – minced garlic from a jar)

Optional Ingredients:

1 cup cubed ham

1 pound crumbled Bacon

8 ounces of Cream Cheese cut into small cubes and stirred in with grated cheese.

Grated cheese options are left up to the baker themselves, but some of my favorites are Cheddar, Mozzarella or Provolone.  You can even grate in some Pepper Jack for another interesting taste.
