My kid wanted it, so I'm making it! I'm a big Mac n' Cheese fan. I've never met a Mac n' Cheese I didn't like. Right now I'm making Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. I really like Stouffers Mac and Cheese to. I haven't made it home made in years. But that's yummy too. Do you have a favorite brand of mac and cheese or a favorite recipe or a favorite place to go eat it?

I prefer to make homemade mac and cheese. I use a lot of cheddar and velveeta cheese and bake it in a tray its just yummy. I think I'm going to have to make it sometime.

I like to make my own mac n cheese, aka baked macaroni and cheese. From the box I like the velvetta shells and cheese the best followed by the kraft mac n cheese when it is creamy being that those are the only ones out of the box that I have ever tasted.

I usually make mine homemade but it has been a while due to lack of time. I do like the Velveeta Mac & Cheese if I don't have time to make my own. When my kids were younger they loved Kraft Mac & Cheese. It has been along time since I've had it though. Hmmm maybe that would go with tomorrows dinner! LOL Thanks for the reminder

I had one granddaughter who ate nothing but kraft mac and cheese for about two years, we did everything we could to get her to eat other things but that was her main food. She grew up fine but Mom and Grandma were total wrecks by the time she did.

I like the Kraft one too. I haven't had it for years. My kids used to love it when they were youngsters, even my youngest who was sooo fussy. She would try to say she didn't like it and didn't want it but when I put the tomato sauce (ketchup) smiley face on it she could not resist!!

Velveeta Shells and Cheese is about my favorite! I love mac and cheese and I am actually taking it to work today for my lunch. I hope to enjoy it a good deal as I really don't want to go to work. I know that I have to but I would like to go back to bed and stay an hour or two and then just spend the day with my husband. Oh well!

I am a huge fan of ANY kind of Mac and Cheese, and I have tried for years to duplicate the joy that I get from Stoufers in particular. I love to cook, but this is one that has always gotten me! I do make a stove top version that comes out really cheesy and yummy, I like to use spiral pasta for that one, but if anyone wants to put up a recipe for baked that is really good, I'll give it a try! Thanks.

My favourite brand of macaroni & cheese...is the good old home-baked kind, so loaded with cheese you get that nice crusty top! Mmmmm! The only time that we eat packaged Mac 'n Cheese is when camping...just for the ease of cooking! Bon appetit!

That's what hubby made for dinner last night. I like macaroni and cheese because I love any kind of noodles and all kings of cheese -- so it's right up my alley but w hardly ever make it. Usually we make the Kraft macaroni and cheese (the original stuff) and sometimes I add more cheese to it. I'm getting hungry now!

I like Kraft the best. Store brands are not as good. But I will say that most of the Stouffers products I have tried are good too.

Goodness me, it's been THAT long since I've had Mac n' Cheese that I can;t even remember when it was! I used to sometimes buy the Kraft brand too. It was quick and easy and tasty also! But I did used to put extra grated cheese on it and not just eat it as is. I have not heard of the other brand you mentioned.

I have three.Kraft Deluxe Sharp Cheddar, Boston Market, and Velveeta.Kraft's deluxe has great macaroni and the sharp cheddar cheese is sharp but not too sharp.Boston Market uses rotini pasta and even though it is frozen, it comes out al dente straight from the microwave. And last but not least, Velveeta is just a smooth mac and cheese with shell pasta.

Hi miamilady! That is really yummy! My husband will have it anytime of the day if I prepared it for him. I usually make it since it is one of his favorite. He usually sings when he sees it being prepared and can't wait to have a plate. I usually buy a pack of Royal macaroni and a pack of Eden Quick melt and regular Cheese at my local grocery shop. Take care and have a great day! lovelots..faith

Great stuff, out of the box or homemade. Usually I try different cheeses with the instant stuff, like I'll add Parmesan instead of the powdered stuff that comes with it or shredded cheddar along with the powdered stuff. One of the best side dishes ever :D

I prefer to make homemade macaroni and cheese. I add cream of mushroom soup to it so the cheeses will be very smooth. And it is very healthy. No additives or food colorings.
