I melt my cheese in cream of something soup (see above post) and put in as much as I can comfortably without burning.

After my macaroni is done and drained, I add cheese sauce until my saturation/texture is right, and then whatever cheese sauce I have left (on purpose) I put in a container for something else that might need cheese sauce. If it doesn't get used right away, I put it in the freezer. It's really nice having already made cheese sauce handy.

Would you believe I've never made macaroni and cheese?
And it's most everyone's favorite comfort food.
Don't get me started...
...too late, I'm so going to make this and eat it all gone!

ha ha ha - good point! 2 cups shredded cheddar is what I use, but any kind of cheese would be fine - use your favorite.

MA........now that you've paved the way, I can admit with all the cooking I've done in my lifetime, I've never made mac and cheese either !!
Geeze, I feel so much better now that everyone knows.

I gave the recipe to my son and told him to double it and add whatever he wants.
He made bacon and crumbled it to add to a layer. He cooked up a bit of broccoli and set it aside.
He made two pans worth (doubled it), layered with colby jack, bacon, broccoli, another layer of macaroni, then some ricotta (seasoned) with 2 eggs mixed in, topped with corn flake crumbs, baked 30 minutes.
It was excellent, I had two helpings!!! I'm looking forward to leftovers from the second pan tonight.

tip: slightly undercook the macaroni, the sauce with finish cooking it and it won't get soggy.

Thanks Mudbug.

I made this yesterday and I can proudly say I have now made my first successful batch of mac n cheese. I love cheese A LOT so next time I make it I might fool around with adding cream cheese or ricotta. Thanks for posting this!

recipe

Dor's Baked Mac and Cheese I never got the hang of good baked M&C until my sister turned me on to her version. 1 stick of butter salt and pepper to taste about 2/3 cup of flour 2 cups (about) milk Blend this in a blender - all the butter may rise to the top but you can keep blending it as you go along Cook almost all of a box of macaroni (about 3/4). then layer in a 13 x 9 pan (glass preferred): milk mixture pasta cheese repeat layers Bake at 375 (maybe 30 minutes - you may have to keep an eye on it) [I]Note: I try to do layers but end up just mooshing it all together. It's fine that way.[/I] 3 stars 1 reviews
