Fall is coming up very, VERY soon and mac n' cheese is one of my favorite things to eat during the fall and winter months. While I was on my lunch break today with a friend, we started discussing different mac n' cheese recipes. She told me that she makes a good one with crab meat in it that sounds absolutely DELICIOUS. I never thought of adding anything extra into my homemade mac n' cheese and was wondering if any of you out there did. If so, could you please share some recipes? THANX!!  Grin

I always make my mac and cheese from scratch.  It's a family favorite Friday night dish.  I have been known to add any or all of the following; chopped red and green bell peppers, mushrooms, onions, and sun dried tomatoes.  And pepperoni slices, except during lent.
Paula Dean did a mac and cheese in one of her shows that I'm going to try when it gets cooler out.  It contained eggs.  It was in the show that she did a potluck with the fire department.

A good recipe for boxed stuff is just cook it as normal, then add about half a can of cream of mushroom soup, a splash or two more of milk, a can of tuna (drained) and some peas (if they're frozen, boil them with the pasta for a bit).  Also, don't add so much butter/shortening (use about half of what the box says) otherwise it's too oily.

The boyfriend and I call it mac n' cheese n' tuna n' peas   Grin

I made the homemade with swiss once and kept thinking about how good it would be with ham.

We've always made the mac-n-cheese with a can of tuna and frozen green peas (no mushroom soup), but the first time my son made that combo for Boy Scouts they about laughed him off the campout!!! His question was "Doesn't EVERYBODY make it this way?"

Deep down I'm really two years old..  I like to make easy mac (I'm usually alone, and I'll die if I eat a box of the regular Kraft stuff), and when I'm feeling really fancy, I boil up a pot of water and get out a Hebrew National hotdog.  I cut the bottom 3/4 of the hotdog lengthwise into quarters and then on one side of the top 1/4 I cut two tiny x's.  I throw the dog in the water and as it cooks the long strips I cut curl up and the x's open a little.  When you pull it out it looks like an octopus (minus four legs, I guess).  Throw it on the easy mac and it's swimming in a bright orange sea!
