    Default Report on dry Macaroni Ounces vs Cups

    The original question y'all helped me with was how many cupos of dry
    small macaroni would equal 24 ounces. This was for a doubled batch of
    Alton Brown's Baked Mac' & Cheese recipe.

    I used six cups of dry mac and do think it would have been better,
    moister(sp?), and cheesier with just five. I ended up making all
    according to his tell, but duidn;t have [powdered] ground mustard so I
    used ground brown mustard seeds, which turned out to have less of the
    'sharp' mustard flavor than I would prefer. I also added leftover
    slices of Provolone and Muenster to each dish along with the overall
    24 ounces of sharp Cheddar, plus crushed Cheezits to the buttered
    Panko topping.

    Doubling the recipe with the six cups of dry mac' gave me four dishes
    containing six servings each, and four single-serve dishes as well.
    Thanks again for the measure conversion help, 'twas a successful
    enough bake for giving, freezing and for lunch with my Marines....Picks

    That mustard and cheddar cheese is a favorite flavor combo of mine but i
    try to get some garlic and oregano in there with it.

    A favorite treat of mine is to rub a hot slice of toasted sourdough
    bread with a cut clove of garlic, butter it, sprinkle with oregano and
    then add a slice of cheddar cheese and place in the microwave for about
    30 - 45 seconds. Just enough to heat the cheese without making the
    toast soggy. Under the broiler for a minute or 2 is even better but
    convenience usually trumps the connoisseur in me.
