Homemade mac n cheese recipe thread

So today as I was making my homemade mac n cheese I was thinking of how simple and satisfying it is! Then I started thinking about all the ways to "fancy" it up. And I thought there MUST be others who have yummy mac n cheese recipes to share! Whether simple or exotic! Let's hear 'em!!

Mine is just a simple mac n cheese!

Make a simple roux:
melted butter
flour and milk (a few cups to make it creamy) added slowly to form roux

Then I add the cheese (which is whatever I have on hand.)
Today it was:
Sharp Cheddar
Colby Jack
and a half stick of Phili Brick cream cheese
A few spices:
a teaspoon or 2 of Dijon Mustard, paprika, garlic salt and pepper

Once the noodles are done I toss them into a cake pan with the cheese sauce and top it with ritz crackers (that I sauteed with some butter and garlic, salt and pepper)

Cook at 350 for 30 minutes.

So how do you make yours?

I am a Paula Dean junkie....I use her recipe and everyone from kiddos to adults love it. For the kids version I just use all cheddar cheese.

Re: Homemade mac n cheese recipe thread

Mac and cheese is my most favorite thing in the world. I smelled someone cooking a delicious one with roux, provolone, cheddar, small onions, rosemary, and mushrooms.

I usually make mine as a custard by beating eggs and a little bit of milk with parmesan and cheddar and pouring over steaming hot noodles; then cover and let the eggs set. I use this awesome super thick stone pot to do it so the heat is evenly distributed, but you can also bake it.

I've also made really good mac and cheese sauce by making a roux from rice flour. It's so much more creamy than the roux from wheat flour.

Mine is pretty simple.

Layer cooked macaroni with cubed american cheese, diced tomatoes(from can), butter, salt and pepper. Bake 45 minutes at 350.
