    LizP's Note:

    I love making homemade macaroni and cheese, but I don't always have the time. I used some of the elements of my homemade mac and cheese and incorporated them into the cheap mac and cheese in the blue box. While certainly not as good as homemade, it is really delicious for a quick and easy fix.

      I've never cared for the "Kraft" macaroni and cheese but the kids and adults loved it. Tonight I made your altered version and it was outstanding. I've got to confess that I was voted down on adding extra cheese, but the addition of sour cream alone puts it over the top. It was so creamy and delicious. I'll never prepare Kraft mac & cheese according to the box again. I used the full-fat sour cream because that's what I had on hand, but I'll be making this with a lower fat version in the future. The next time I make this, I will follow your instructions to a "T" without prying eyes, and see what reaction I get. I'll bet that they'll all love it even more. I served this as a side dish to fried chicken and guess what, there's still chicken on the plates but everyone requested seconds on the the mac & cheese. I really am astonished at how well a pre-packaged product can be converted into such a wonderful dish. Thank you LizP for sharing your ingenious recipe. One word says it all -- AWESOME!!

      wow this was good! I didn't have any american cheese on hand so basically just tried subbing the sour cream [light, I might add] for the milk and wasn't expecting as big a difference as I noticed! it's so much creamier and the taste is MUCH better. I too added a splash of milk to the mix to help everything blend together. I think this is how I'll make the ol' blue box from now on! thanks for a keeper. :)
