As a poor college student with little condements on hand, I like to spice my easy mac up with a little bit of salsa (or a lot if you like that sort of thing). Another add in is a great pasta sauce wehther it be alfredo or tomato. I wonder if adding pepperoni would be good? I will have to try it sometime...

I use a lot less margarine because I do not like the soupy mac and I use soy milk, 8th Continent is my fave. I add in a small pinch of marble jack cheese, some pepper, and broccoli. I've added in extra garlic powder because I LOVE garlic, and I've also added in vegan bacon bits to a very nice ending.

I love the tuna and peas mix. The crab addition sounds PERFECT, especially if there's an alfredo mix or a soft and creamy cheese is used. I used to use hot dogs in it when I was younger. A friend of mine puts ketchup in to make it sweeter. Curry powder is a wild idea I've been thinking about lately.

I love boxed meals, they're so easy to make into full meals!

Here are some links to some unusual mac and cheese recipes from the Food Network.  Rachael Ray, while annoying, is certainly the queen of mac and cheese.

Smoky Chipotle and Cheddar Mac:

Italian Mac and Cheese (with Italian Sausage)

Mac and Cheese with Chicken and Broccoli

Mac and Cheese Dog Casserole--I haven't made this but damn if it don't sound like the ultimate childhood memory comfort food!

Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese

So far I've only tried the top two I posted, and liked them both very much.  I hope you enjoy!

The mac and cheese dog cassarole is so good I've had it before and I defiently reccomend it! Grin

Mmmm, these all sound so good!  For me, no mac and cheese is complete without sunflower seeds.  Strange, I know, but I won't have it any other way!

I like mac n' cheese with tomatoes.  Plain old canned tomatoes.  (Well, maybe not old)   I think this started when I was a kid, my mom always made baked macaroni and cheese.  When it came out of the oven it was about as hot as lava.  I couldn't wait for it to cool down, so I would put some in a bowl and put canned tomatoes on top so it would cool faster.  I still eat it this way, and still in a bowl rather than on a plate.

If you love sunflower seeds on your mac and cheese you should sprinkle them on a grilled cheese....ooh, so delicious. I'm betting you'd like it, kelleys

I like my Kraft Dinner made very dry (my boyfriend likes his with lots of milk and butter, whereas I pretty much just add the cheese to the noodles and stir), topped with shredded cheese (usually Kroger's mexican blend), romano, pepper, or ketchup.  Or all of the above. 

My homemade recipe usually just involved making a roux, adding liquid (usually whatever I have on hand--milk, a bit of sour cream, half and half) and spices, then adding cheese until it tastes cheesy enough.  Usually I use a blend of white and yellow/orange cheeses, so it never ends up actually looking very interesting. 

I always make really small portions of homemade mac and cheese, since I'm the only one who eats it.

Sunflower seeds on mac and cheese?  That sounds so good.

Lots of herbs and spices mentioned, but not sure if this has been suggested: Oregano. Just sprinkle on a bunch (dried) and it's fabulous. Then again, as the length of this thread suggests, mac and cheese is such a fabulous comfort food that it's a perfect base for some good stuff. YUM
