Yesterday I made the recipe from Good Housekeeping, and it uses 2 cups of grated cheese. I used sharp cheddar, but I feel like it was bland and tasteless. My next plan is to double the sauce for the same amount of macaroni (8 oz)to see if that helps.

So, does anyone have a great scratch mac and cheese recipe? What kind of cheese do you use?
gentlearts, there is already a thread on this subject. I will look for it and merge. ETA: Done

I am a traditionalist, just a white sauce with cheddar, big elbow macaroni, mixed up. Top with buttered bread crumbs, bake, and gorge on the carb/fat overload.

No Rotel, no hot sauce. For a kick, maybe some dry mustard or white pepper.

My recipe is pretty similar to most of those already posted - white sauce, sharp cheddar (no Velveeta or CheezWhiz!), a little dry mustard, pepper, and bread crumbs.

I use whole wheat elbow macaroni noodles and top with lightly buttered whole wheat bread crumbs (yum!),

Also, an ingredient I use and I only saw it mentioned once or twice here - onion. I make the white sauce, add chopped onion and let it cook for a few minutes, then add the cheese.

I don't think mac and cheese is any good unless it has eggs. I like it firm, not runny.

My sons wife is an excellent cook, but he won't eat Mac & cheese unless its Kraft in a box.

Default Good macaroni and cheese recipes, please!

I would like to make a yummy, creamy macaroni and cheese. I have never made any except the kind in the box. Care to share your favorite recipe?
