boil your macaroni in salted water .

take a large spoonful maybe 2 spoonfulls of butter , not margarine , butter .

melt it until it becomes a liquid .

add a few spoonfulls of plain flour slowly , mixing all the time to create a paste , but dont allow lumps to form .

when you have a paste , slowly add fresh milk and continue mixing to turn the paste in to a sauce .

continue mixing until all of your milk is added and it is now thick enough to cling to your spoon .

at this point add your grated cheese , for best results use strong cheddar cheese .

add salt and pepper and continue mixing until all the cheese becomes sauce .

take the cooked macaroni and drain it , then add a spoonfull of butter to lightly butter the pasta .

place the pasta in a large cassorole dish and pour the sauce over . mix it well to make sure the saucve is right through all of your pasta .

then cover the whole dish in more grated cheese and place in an oven or under a grill when the cheese on top begins to brown its ready to serve .

You will be hard pressed to find Velveeta here I think and if you do it will be astronomically priced. Basically it is kraft processed cheese slices in a block. I've had the recipe in the states before and it was tasty, my friend Annie who is a fabulous cook adds chopped up crispy bacon bits for a twist.

I've seen some US Mac&Cheese available boxed in Friendship and Villa, just add milk.

Ps I always liked the Heinz one out of a tin, just my preference :)

Sorry Tony but the company blurb doesn't add up, here's a couple of quotes one of them from Wikipedia.

ps have you ever tried it? you can spread it on bread straight from the fridge.

Velveeta is the brand name of a processed cheese product having a taste that is identified as a type of American cheese with a texture that is softer and smoother. It was first made in 1918 by Swiss immigrant Emil Frey of the Monroe Cheese Company in Monroe, New York. In 1923, The Velveeta Cheese Company was incorporated as a separate company, and was sold to Kraft Foods in 1927. The product was advertised for its nutrition.[1] According to Kraft's website, in the 1930s, Velveeta became the first cheese product to gain the American Medical Association's seal of approval.[2] It was reformulated in 1953 as a cheese spread.[2] Velveeta is labeled in the United States as a "Pasteurized Prepared Cheese Product" (see processed cheese). The name 'Velveeta' is intended to connote a velvety smooth edible product. Smoothness and meltability are promoted as its iconic properties that result by reincorporating the whey with the curd. The product was spun off into a line of over a dozen food products based on Velveeta.
"Velveeta is made in part of whey, a by-product of cheese-making. Velveeta is classified by the United States Food and Drug Administration as pasteurized process cheese spread (see processed cheese).

Whey or milk plasma is the liquid remaining after milk has been curdled and strained; it is a by-product of the manufacture of cheese or casein and has several commercial uses.

Processed cheese has three technical advantages over unprocessed cheese: extended shelf-life, resistance to separation when cooked, and the ability to reuse scraps, trimmings and runoff from other cheesemaking processes."

But I guess a lot of Americans may think it's real cheese :whistle:

Being canadian,this is the craziest topic ive ever heard.

In canada, kraft mac and chesse might be the most popular

food group in the country(kinda like pot noodles in the UK,

everybody who is alittle low on cash buys it)

I honestly dont know the proper way of cooking it,but every

time ive had it in canada its been pretty good.

p.s i thought only canadians ate mac and cheese,small world?

Why anyone would eat this shite is beyond me.

Is it some form of kebab replacement you consume after double-digit beers?

Honestly, if you are going to eat shite, why not just pick up a 2 day old turd off the pavement?

Mac n' Cheese is for children. f**king comparing recipes... whatever next - "how to cook the perfect beans on toast"???? How to boil the perfect egg? Mama soup for beginners.

Bunch of f**king culinary Philistines...

To make it properly needs a lot od cheese Tise, I wouldnt call that Cheap Charlie.

The recipe im looking at need 4dl macaroni, 1 table spoon butter, 1 tablespoon flour, 4-5dl milk 3% fat, 1-2dl shredded cheese, salt and white pepper. I love bacon, so I will add some bacon to it as well. But still, it looks like cheap charlie food unless I buy some expensive cheese, which I wont, because cheddar is really delicious, and cheap.

I will try to make a batch tomorrow. Hopefully it turns out really good. :laughing:

Not that I would tell anybody how to cook, but single cream instead of milk...

Take photos please.

ye cream makes everything more delicious, so I probably use that instead of milk. :laughing:

Will post photos if I have the time to do it tomorrow.
