Walt Disney's daughter, Diane, has stated that many early years of trying to save money resulted in her dad developing “a hash house-lunch wagon appetite. He liked fried potatoes, hamburgers, western omelets, hotcakes, canned peas, hash, stew, roast beef sandwiches. He doesn’t go for vegetables, but loves chicken livers or macaroni and cheese.”
While Walt's famous chili recipe has appeared a number of times, Disney Historian Jim Korkis recently discovered one of Walt's favorite recipes for macaroni and cheese that has never, ever been reprinted. In appeared in the February 1934 issue of the magazine "Better Homes and Gardens".
