EASY 6 Cheese Baked Mac and Cheese Recipe

6 Cheese Mac & Cheese

For my homemade mac and cheese recipe, I’ve chosen 6 cheeses because I like my mac and cheese to have a very distinct flavor.


  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 3 cups Sargento 6 Cheese Mac & Cheese or any variation of cheeses
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper less if you don't like any heat
  • salt to taste
  • 1 lb elbow macaroni al dente


  • Cook elbow macaroni to al dente, drain and set aside.
  • Heat a deep skillet over medium heat, then add olive oil and butter.
  • After the butter melts, add flour a little at a time while whisking. Cook flour through, around 2-3 minutes.
  • Add milk slowly while whisking and bring to boil while whisking.
  • Allow milk to thicken a bit, then add 2 cups of cheese, a little at a time while stirring until all cheese has been added.
  • Add cayenne pepper and stir, then add cooked macaroni to sauce.
  • Evenly distribute sauce and macaroni, then move to a deep baking dish.
  • Add remaining cheese to the top and broil under brown and crispy.
