Re: Can anyone tell me how to make any of these items? Also, menu ideas?

I posted this on a thread a few months ago so I am copy/pasting it for you, but this is for "fancy" mac and cheese that I make for company all the time. Very easily doubled or tripled depending on number of guests.

melt 1/2 stick of butter
Add diced half onion, and saute
Add two heaping tbsp flour
Stir really well until all flour is incorporated
Add two cups warm milk, a ladleful at a time.
Keep stirring until it's smooth and thick and yummy
Add a few grinds of pepper
Add half a cup of parmesan, shredded or grated
Stir for a minute or so
Add half a cup of Gruyere, shredded
Stir a minute or so, until starting to really melt in
Add a few tbsp of crumbly blue cheese
Keep stirring until all cheese melted in
Add chopped sun dried tomatoes and some chives to taste
Add cooked pasta - I add half a box if I am loading it up with other stuff
You usually don't need salt bc of all the cheese

For non- vegetarians reading this - I add cooked chopped andouille sausage and cooked shredded chicken.
