Walt's Macaroni Mickey Mousse

While tripping along a Disney recipe index, I came upon this, which I think is so adorable. It's from a February 1934 Better Homes & Gardens issue. I thought it was too nice to be hidden, so I wanted to bring everyone's attention to it here.

I can't figure out who the blogger is who originally posted it, but here is the source link. It was great of whomever to post it.

Now, I don't know how much cheese had to do with the creation of Mickey Mouse, but it does make for a cute read and references the mouse that scampered around Walt's Kansas City office.
I love the part that reads, "Mr. Disney often serves Macaroni Mickey Mousse to his friends who visit him at his Hollywood bungalow." The recipe variations that follow lead me to believe that perhaps he actually did.

If anyone tries this recipe out, do let me know how it goes.

I found your post when I did a google search for this recipe. It was always one of my favorites as a child. I had never seen it anywhere and I was looking for history on it. As an adult I have made it many times, though I find increasing the macaroni to 1 1/2 cups makes a better dish.

I admit, I still need to try out this recipe. It must be great if you've been enjoying it for so long!
I'll keep in mind your recommendation when I do get around to it. :)
Thanks for commenting! If you find more of a history on it, do post and let me know.
