    Default Creamy Mac and Cheese

    So easy to make, takes less than 2 hours to prepare and bake and most
    of the ingredients are already in your cupboards and
    refrigerators...I

    INGREDIENTS:

    one box of your choice small pasta bits
    16 slices of american or cheddar cheese
    1 cup milk
    1/4 lb stick butter or margarine
    2 tablespoons flour or cornstarch
    1 teaspoon vegetable oil
    salt and pepper to taste

    Boil pasta until cooked to your taste, drain, cover and set aside.

    In a microwave bowl or small stove pot heat milk and butter until
    butter is melted and put aside. DO NOT SCALD!

    In a another small pot put in oil on very low heat and sprinkle flour/
    corn starch and make a roue--- gradually add a little of the butter/
    milk mixture and slices of the cheese stirring all the while until
    cheese is thoroughly melted and all buttermilk mix is used. Add salt
    and pepper to taste.

    Blend contents of both pots together and then into a casserole dish,
    Spread even and top with your choice of bread crumbs, sliced black
    olives, sliced hot dogs, mini meatballs, or sprinkle paprika on top,
    add some salsa or some dabs of relish. Remember to coat all toppings
    with melted butter before placing into 350F oven for 15 minutes or
    until golden and bubbly. Then serve.

    I can't see why you would need the oil. Just melt the butter and put the
    flour in there. Cook it for a minute then slowly whisk in the milk. Then
    add the cheese. Shredded cheese. Not slices. It's dead easy.

    And don't forget the relish. Sweet or dill relish - shouldn't matter!

    Hmmm... That sounds a bit odd.

    I used to make a pasta salad with relish that was really good. I adapted a
    recipe on the Kraft mac and cheese box. Theirs called for ham which I don't
    like. I subbed in tuna. Had all sorts of chopped raw veggies and some
    cooked peas. Mayo for dressing. It was actually very good.

    Olive tapenade, especially if you switch from mild to strong cheese.

    It's supposed to. It's probably Sheldon's recipe.

    I don't think your recipe could be called mac 'n cheese, actually. It
    should probably be re-named as a "Macaroni Hot Dish" recipe. ;-)

    The give-away is the "slices". Are we talking American cheese, which
    is not even real cheese? Ick! May as well buy some Kraft
    cheese-inna-pouch instant mac/cheese or use cheese-wiz.

    I just assumed it was still "somewhere" in parts unknown... who knows
    where they put it in the mega-grocery stores we have to shop in these
    days? I have a hard enough time finding Colby Jack cheese (which
    would actually be on my shopping list).

    I saw it at an Asian market not long ago (?) Lots of it, in fact. I
    don't know why. I think it's big in Canada and Alaska for some
    reason, too.

    I have no idea where to look for it in a grocery store. I obviously
    don't peruse that section often. or I see it and my eyes just don't
    register it. I seem to recall seeing spray cheese recently... So I'd
    guess near the crackers and chips.

    Yes. With the crackers. My daughter who wouldn't touch Velveeta with a 10
    foot pole used to eat Cheese Whiz. She hasn't eaten it for many years. She
    does however eat aerosol cheese and so does my husband. I will have it once
    in a while on a potato chip if I am in a super hurry and need a quick snack.
    But it would never be my first choice.

    I have no idea. I was thinking of some Kraft cheese glop in a jar,
    often used for nachos and similar inedible cheese dishes.

    I saw it not long ago - it's on the shelf by Velveeta (not
    refrigerated). I used to like Cheese Whiz now and then, but they
    changed the consistency/texture and it's really bad now.
