I prefer it just plain, maybe a little extra cheese. Sometimes I add hotdogs to it.

I love macaroni and cheese. If I buy it in a box, I never use the packet that comes with it. I like to use the noodles and this is what I add to mine. milk american cheese colby cheese butter salt pepper

I sometimes make the box junk for my son. I am not really fond of it. I do not add anything to it. If I am making mac and cheese from scratch I will sometimes add ground turkey to it. I do not get very inventive wiht y mac and cheese. It is a rare occasion that we even have it in our house.

I used to add vegetables. I thought it was a great idea. My wife, however, seems to disdain any vegetables added to her mac and cheese. I should still try adding cauliflower. I've heard it kind of disappears into the mac and cheese without being easily noticed. I haven't performed this experiment yet. I believe my wife will notice and think I'm being weird.

I've added things here and there before. Bacon Bits are good. But, for the most part we like the Walmart Thick n Creamy variety just the way it is...adding anything kind of ruins it for us...lol

I add sour cream, green onions, bacon and extra cheese. Sometimes after I cook it then I put it in a casserole dish and bake it, so its a little drier.

I often add oven-roasted veggies to my macaroni and cheese ~ it makes it slightly healthier, with those extra vits and minerals in there! Iv also added low-fat smoked sausage before now, bits of cooked chicken, and even smoked salmon. They were all delicious. I also do a topping of breadcrumbs with herbs, some garlic, and a little olive oil added ~ its like a delicous crispy garlic-bread topping ... mmmmmm xxxxx

Sometimes I will add hot dogs to it or I will mix peas in with it. My husband dosen't like peas so if I am cooking it for him I make it plain or with hot dogs the kids and I like peas mixed in it without the hot dogs.

I guess I am boring! lol I just have plain macaroni and cheese without anything else added in. I knew someone who used to always put ketchup on their macaroni and cheese, and I always thought that was strange! I've never tried it that way, but I don't think I'd like it very much. I just stick to the plain macaroni and cheese! :)

I add extra cheese, too. Sometimes I'll put in cut up hot dogs, or some turkey. :]

Hummm, I never thought about beans. I will add tuna and sometimes red bellpepper. Extra cheese is a must!
