Question ISO How do you make Mac & Cheese?

How do you do your mac & cheese?
I'v always done it the same way (also the way that my mom and my grandma have done it).

you put layers of (in theis order) mac then cheese (just cheddar & or mozz) in slices, then onions, S&P, then another layer or so of that then finish with onions, S&P, and breadcrumbs.

It's very good (we don't have it very often) and I only ask because any other recipe i have come across makes a white sauce then adds the pasta and what not.
so what do you do?

I make a roux with 3T flour and 3T butter. I add a couple cups of milk. I add in a ton of White American Cheese and Sharp White Cheddar. I add in cayenne pepper, smoked paprika, cracked pepper, and salt. Then i throw in some sea shells. Cooked on stove top, no baking.

Well, SurvivorGirl, I have quite a few recipes for mac and cheese, most of which begin with a white sauce. I have a recipe that calls for 5 different kinds of cheese, anotther that has tomatoes in it, and several others I can't recall off the top of my head. They're all good.

Yours is interesting because I don't remember any of mine having onions in them. I like onions, but I think I would use something like shallots or green onions instead of yellow or white onions. Just me.

Mine is a T & T recipe that I learned from my grandma. Different than most others....and, my grandchildren, now grown up, still ask me to make it!

Boil a bag of wide egg noodles.
Saute a bit of onion, maybe half of a medium one.
Add a can or maybe a little more of tomato soup
Shred a good portion of strong cheddar.
Keep some of the cheese aside.
Mix the noodles, the tomato soup mixture and the cheddar together.
Put into a buttered casserole dish.
Sprinkle the extra cheese on top.....I like to put lots on top.
Bake at 315-325F until the top is crusty...
It's really,really good, and I even like to "nosh" on it when it's cold from the fridge, the next day......ENJOY!!!
