    Chef Boy of Dee's's Note:

    This is in reply to a request for mac and cheese. I copied this from Alton Brown "Good Eats" from the food network. Does take a bit of work, but well worth it. You can add tuna, hot dogs or any other kinds of additions you want.

      "The purpose of cooking the roux".. ( flour butter mixture) is to cook the flour taste out of it).. as well as to make the perfect lump free sauce!..<br/>I made this per Alton's directions.. I grated my onions and gave them a quick rise with water..before adding to the milk..( rising removes that onion odor)..I also added a 3 oz of cream cheese...PERFECT!...will make this one for my family cook book!

      This is really good and creamy though I only made 1/2 a recipe I used 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese and 1/2 cup Mozzarella cheese as I don't like too much cheese. I like mixed cheese in my mac & cheese. I pretty much halved everything except I only cooked butter and flour 3 minutes as I had halved recipe but I went for the full 10 minutes on the other simmer, stir time..

      Forgot something I used less mustard as someone mentioned that had too strong a mustard flavor. Though I used all the onion.

      I made this just as directed except I didn't butter the panko bread crumbs. Excellent flavor and texture. I will keep this recipe handy for this very good treat.
