This is a recipe I have made for years.

1-box of Kraft macaroni and Cheese (Blue Box)
1/2 pound of ground beef
1/4 cup onion,chopped
1 can of Cream of Mushroom soup (do not add water)

Brown the ground beef and onion, then drain. Set aside. Prepare the box of macaroni as directed on package, using all the ingredients. Mix with the ground beef mixture and stir in the Cream Of Mushroom soup. Put into a 2 quart casserole that has been sprayed with Pam. And bake uncovered at 350 for 20 minutes.

That isn't a combination that I've tried, but it sounds really good.

I like my homemade macaroni and cheese, but the little blue box is still a favorite.

Sometimes I take the blue box and an assortment of other boxes (like dry cereal) and using glue I make a desk organizer. You can cover it with construction paper (or not) and you can label the containers. Sometimes I just put one together for sorting. You can also use this to invent little funny games and mazes (rainy day projects).
You can also decorate one and put it on the bedroom door for messages...etc.
This is just the tip of the iceberg for my blue box crafts.

We totally covered Mac & Cheese in another thread. So this must be the thread for the box.

You mean that little ol' thread we had here StirBlue?

Mac-n-Cheese is really a meal extender (a bulking agent) - it really depends on what you want to use to flavor it.

I swear - if nobody has written a cookbook for this .... I'm going to!
