Richard, it's ALL your fault!

That I'm making mac and cheese for dinner tonight. I've had a serious craving for it ever since you talked about your dinner party. Smile

How was it Brenda? Yummy?

I think we should share mac 'n cheese recipes, like someone suggested earlier. It's one of the only dishes I make well (and no, it's not out of a blue and white box, all you smarty pants).

Does anyone else put onions in their's?

I am afraid when I make macaroni and cheese as a main dish, I put whatevr looks good at the time in there ... onions, peppers of all colors, pork, chicken, green onion, mushrooms, zuchinni ... whatever strikesmy fancy at the time. Nevber was very good at following recipes! LOL

I envy that Richard. My cooking skills are so poor. I have to follow a recipe exactly and even then it doesn't always work.

I had a friend over and he said he never had onion in his mac 'n cheese.

My recipe is from a old old old Betty Crocker book. LIke Richard my involves making a rue. It's definitely more time consuming, but my future DIL ,who is all of 105 lbs, will sit and eat three helpings at a time. She asks for it all the time. Probably because it's tried and true, and if I don't make it she doesn't know what she'll end up with!

I love macaroni and cheese. I also put lots of stuff in. Richard, a good cook uses a recipe as a baseline... then we make it our own by being creative. You M&C sounds absolutely delicious.

when we went to florida we noticed how macaroni and cheese was on nearly every menu, it is not eaten a great deal in the uk, we tend to have cauliflower cheese, (dropping the word and,) but i did try some and it was lovely and rich n cheesy, very tasty, not so good for the waistline though!

I've never put onion in mine, but I bet that's good. I'll try it next time. If I add anything, it tends to just be some chunked up ham. Frank's kind of a picky eater, and mac and cheese isn't his favorite anyway, so.....

But yes, it was very good. I used panko instead of regular breadcrumbs on top. I love the extra crunch.

They're japanese bread crumbs. They are extremely crunchy. It's great to bake chicken breaded in them to get the crunch of fried food without the guilt.
