Everyone loves mac and cheese, one person perhaps too much. Sometimes this causes drama.

True fact: Meryl Streep loves mac and cheese.

Disclaimer: Not true.

Joey Tribbiana liked Mac and C.h.e.e.s.e.

That is all could think of which is weird.

I'll do anything for cheese, but I won't do that.

I can think of two guys who love macaroni and cheese a little too much.

Here is the obligatory mention of The Barenaked Ladies who would still eat Kraft Dinner.

I don't know about the mac and cheese angle but that video is Exhibit A in the case against goatees.

Great. Now I want some mac&cheese. Drool.

I actually had the fancy, organic mac and cheese for the first time tonight. KD is still better.

True story: in college I worked in the cafeteria. The cooks were this bunch of awesome mid-50's women who chain smoked out in the loading dock and bragged in ear-burning language about how well their husbands went down on them. One of them took me into a cloakroom one afternoon to show me the handgun she'd just bought from a guy in the parking lot. That was one of the best jobs I ever had.

In addition to being completely kickass, they also cooked really well. Once they made a batch of homemade mac & cheese that tasted amazing. But for some reason, the kids wouldn't touch it. At all. In a fit of frustration, one of them dumped a bunch of orange food coloring into the pan and stirred it until it looked like a nuclear disaster.

And suddenly it went like chum in a shark tank. Apparently Kraft has programmed all of us to associate a color that appears nowhere in nature with the condition of "cheesiness".

That said, if Käsespätzle ever makes it across the ocean, Kraft's days are numbered.

Pfft. If anything threatens Kraft's righteous and glorious hegemony, it sure as shit won't be something with SWISS cheese.

There's a hungarian place near where I live that does a Halušky with cheese (feta, I think) that basically sounds like Käsespätzle. It is fucking awesome.

Also, you people eating Kraft dinner are fucking crazy, that stuff tastes horrible now, and it did when I ate it when I was a little kid.

I vaguely remember eating some similar boxed fake cheese crap in Australia as a kid. I look at it now though and it looks pretty bad. well it just looks like bland mass-produced crap.

Its like Macdonalds doing a simple Pasta with some cheese sauce.

The Käsespätzle looks a little better (and I do like fresh Spätzle) - but that recipe is crap. In Germany / Switzerland it would be made with a good mountain cheese such as Ementaler a Gruyere rather than a generic American "Swiss Cheese".

Macaroni-and-cheese-in-a-box.

Finding out that Americans eat macaroni-and-cheese-in-a-box is like being asked to believe that they wear shoes on their hands and hats on their heads.

Bright orange, yet.

You can buy Kraft cheddar cheese powder by the pound and add it to your own macaroni.

I had Mac and cheese for dinner last night.
Don't hate me.

I'm a Golden Grain man, myself. Way cheaper and isn't made by a cigarette company.

I tend to get the cheapest thing available and chef it up, like last night's dinner of a Totino's Party Pizza I revised with a bit of Stilton, chanterelles, and properly caramelized onions. Magnifique for magna cheap.

...I actually have switched to Annie's Organic these days.

Yes, I also make it from scratch the real way, but sometimes fake cheese is what you want, you know?

I was all set to make Käsespätzle immediately, but it looks like I need a spätzle maker.
It's always something...

I think everyone should feel free to share their favorite homemade mac and cheese recipes in this thread, thus insuring its immortality.

BAKE THE WITCH at 325 for 20 minutes or until the cheese turns at edges.

Exactly. Like I said in the previous thread about mac and cheese, comparing KD and its ilk to homemade is like comparing a Big Mac to a gourmet hamburger. Sure, they're similar, but they're very different types of food and they serve different functions.

I would eat fried mac and cheese balls, let it be known.

Homemade is "get on my tongue and in my mouth" and Kraft(et al) is "GET IN MAH BELLEH"

At least one of the pizza joints around here, and I think maybe a couple, offer deep fried mac n cheese. While I like deep fried curds, and mac and cheese, I'm actually surprisingly not a fan of the fried macncheese.

I've seen a few places that have mac and cheese pizza. Mac and cheese ON the pizza!

They had fried mac-n-cheese as one of the hors'd'ouvres at my cousin's wedding a couple years back. That tray was picked clean within minutes.

Heh I just had a mac n cheese pizza a few weeks ago (from another one of our local joints). :) It was actually better than I expected.
