Macaroni & Cheese Recipes

As great as regular Kraft Dinner is, lots of people have come up with ways to improve upon (or at least modify) the recipe. I've heard tell that you can even make macaroni and cheese from scratch. I've started this page to document experiments in Kraft Dinnerdom, whether they be for Good, or for Awesome.

This is presently the newest addition to the site, so it might change as I come up with better ways to do it. It might be cool if people could rate recipies or something, but that would involve remembering how PHP works. In the meantime, if you've got a recipe you'd like to contribute, head on over to the suggestions page, or just email them to me. I'll fully credit whoever submits something, so make sure you let me know how you want to be credited (and if you'd like a link back to your webpage or whatever, that's cool too).

Disclaimer: All recipes listed (unless otherwise noted) are contributed by readers of this website. I haven't verified that these recipes aren't copyrighted works, or industrial trade secrets, or whatever it is you do with recipes for macaroni and cheese when you want to make sure people pay you royalties whenever they make supper. If you think something on this page belongs to you, or the multinational conglomerate that you work for, let me know, and I'll work to resolve it.

From Lissa:

  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon each dry mustard and salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon each paprika and black pepper
  • 1.5 cups reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 ounces light cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup minced onions
  • 3 tablespoons parmesan cheese
  • 6 cups cooked elbow macaroni (3 cups dry)
  • 1/4 cup unseasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon parmesan cheese

In med saucepan, combine milk and flour until smooth. Cook over med-high heat until mixture is bubbly and thickened, about 7-8 minutes.

Stir in dry mustard, salt, paprika, pepper, all cheeses, and onions. Continue to cook until all cheese are melted.

Combine cheese sauce with cooked macaroni. Transfer to a large casserole dish that has been sprayed with non-stick spray.

Mix bread crumbs and parmesan cheese. Sprinkle over top. Bake at 350 degrees, uncovered, for 30 minutes. Serve immediately.

From Smyrly - "Chilli-Mac"

  • One box Kraft Dinner (prepared normally)
  • One can of Chili (use Stagg if you want the good stuff) prepared as per the can
  • Mix the Kraft Dinner and Chili together, and enjoy

Also, as a public service announcement, the Hideaway Pub in Salmon Arm BC Canada has KD on their menu, only $0.69 for a full box.

From Khrysler - Tuna Suprise!

Its that old camping favourite...Tuna Surprise! The surprise is how easy it is to make, and how good tuna and kd are together. I think 'Hamburger Helper' has actually borrowed this recipe from me with their new 'Tuna Helper'!!!

Note: This is a comparatively 'good' meal when you are camping or when you only have dry/canned foods left in your kitchen.

  • Step one: make KD the way you like it.
  • Step two: mix in a can of tuna (drained).
  • Step three: mix in some canned or fresh or frozen peas (optional)
  • Step four: add salt and pepper to taste.

Other recipies of a similar nature include: Wiener Suprise, Hamburger Surprise, Spam Surprise....the list goes on and on. Basically, you can use this recipe for all the odds and ends in your fridge and cupboards. Enjoy!
