    Well the way I make it is flour & butter to make a roux then milk to make a white sauce then add the cheese (whatever is hanging around prob cheddar tho) melt the cheese thru the sauce then stir into precooked pasta.
    ds was sooooo looking forward to US mac n cheese then when he tried it at disney he thought it was disgusting and it really put him off!

    :yes: I make it quite the way you describe. :yes: I don't like processed American cheese so never put it in mine. Velveeta! YUCK! Nothing but plastic as far as I'm concerned!

    *giggle* Jon calls this "dog cheese" because the only reason they used to buy it in his household was to fold their dog's medication into it and feed it to him...

    I was making Baleigh a toasted cheese sandwhich one night and asked him if we had any cheese, he said, "only dog cheese" Baleigh was MORTIFIED. LOL!!

    It's the processed cheese definitely.

    I saw cheese sauce being made for baked potato toppings once. The cook took the lid off the tin, let the giant lump of orange stuff slide into a pan and then it was heated for 40 minutes to become a sauce. I think I just had salad that night. :eek:

    <o:p> </o:p>
    ¼ - ½ pound of butter (125-250g)
    3 cups of milk (I use low fat, not skim/fat free)
    1 medium onion
    Flour (I don’t measure, I just add it until it looks about right for a roux)
    4 flavors of cheese (approximately 3-4 cups) cubed or shredded
    Note: Here I can buy a 4 cheese blend in my grocery store with cheddar as one of the blends. But basically any 4 complementary cheeses can be used
    1 pound (500g) box of Elbow Macaroni
    Salt and pepper to taste
    Paprika To Taste (I use hot Hungarian)
    If desired a goodly size chunk of smoked/cured ham
    <o:p> </o:p>
    Melt the butter over medium heat
    Cut and dice the onion and sauté in butter and salt and pepper until just soft
    Sprinkle in the flour and stir until it thickens.
    Add the milk and bring to almost a boil.
    Remove from heat and stir in cheese until it melts, if you are using ham you can dice it up and stir it in at this point also.
    <o:p> </o:p>
    Heat oven to 375F / 190 C
    <o:p> </o:p>
    While doing the above, in separate pan boil salted water (I also add just a touch of Extra Virgin Olive Oil). When the water is boiling, add the macaroni and cook according to directions.
    <o:p> </o:p>
    Drain the macaroni and return to the pan. Stir in the cheese mixture.
    <o:p> </o:p>
    When it is well mixed turn it out into a greased baking pan
    Top Mixture with a sprinkle of paprika
    Place in Oven for approximately 30 -40 minutes.
    <o:p> </o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>

    I love all cheeses except Velveeta and that nasty plastic wrapped stuff. Neither is really cheese IMO.

    For sure at LTT but JIKO does their own and I'm sure there are some other restaurants that do their own also. Most of the Mac&Cheese on kids menus is probably also Stouffer's.
