Hoop Cheese Mac and Cheese



Hoop Cheese Mac and Cheese

This is the simplest mac and cheese that you can make.  My husband says it is the best he has ever eaten.  Hoop cheese is a farmer’s style cheese that commonly has a red or black wax rind.  This cheese is getting rather hard to find, so if you can’t find it, just use a good Cheddar.  I actually used Longhorn-style mild cheddar.

  • 2 cups dry elbow macaroni
  • 12 oz. red wax hoop cheese, cubed
  • 1 (5-oz.) can evaporated milk

Bring 1 quart of water to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat.  Once boiling, add 1/2 tablespoon salt and macaroni, and cook until tender.  Drain the macaroni, and return it to the pot over low heat.  Add the cheese and evaporated milk.  Stir until the cheese is melted and creamy.  Serve immediately.

Serves 4.

  1. I didn’t find it, Kalynn. There are places, though, where you can order it. And I think there are places in Wisconsin where you can buy it. I used a Longhorn-style mild cheddar for mine and it was delicious.
