The Infamous Macaroni & Cheese

The Infamous Macaroni & Cheese

I’m convinced after making countless versions of macaroni & cheese that the best homemade version is cooked stove-top, no baking involved.

This is a fairly common recipe Рmake a b̩chamel and add cheese, then mix with the pasta and bake. I thought it was better pre-baking.

Still, nothing comes close to being as good as the Kraft from my childhood. I know it’s powdered cheese with food dyes and weird chemicals, but it’s what I grew up on, and I want that – but made with quality ingredients.

  1. Wise words….I’m sure if we dissect the orange powder we’ll find the magic ingredient, but I still have fond memories and often wonder if I shouldn’t bring another few envelopes back to Italy ;)

  2. How funny, Sheri – I just posted Macaroni & Cheese, too. But, mine has tomatoes in it.

    Isn’t it funny that despite how sophisticated our palates become we still crave our childhood favorites? I still like the Pillsbury cinnamon rolls with orange icing that come in a canister even though I know homemade ones would be so much better & healthier!
