"The combination of macaroni, cheese, little smokies, and carrots is awesome--my kids will even eat this, and that is saying something!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 (16 ounce) package
1 (10.75 ounce) can
condensed Cheddar cheese soup
dried minced onion flakes
1 (16 ounce) package
little smokie sausages
processed cheese, cubed
frozen diced carrots
This was very good. I didn't have frozen carrots so I used canned and it still turned out fine. I also added a dash of garlic and onion powder in place of the minced onion. This dish made a lot so make sure you have a few mouths to feed if you make this, next time I'll half the recipe.
My son loved it so I think that's a plus but the grease from the cheese and lil smokies was extremely over powering for me
The onion was a littel bit much. I would use garlic powder instead, in a smaller quantity. My children LOVED this...even the super-picky 8-year old! I will make it again.
It was good. My mom always made homemade mac 'n cheese with just velveeta, butter, and milk, but I never liked it. Nowadays, if I make it homemade, I use various cheeses (cojack, cheddar, etc.). This was really good though. I had fresh carrots that I boiled for a bit before putting it in the cheese mixture. I used onion powder and garlic powder rather than flakes, which I don't have anyways. I added some of the carrot water to the cheese mixture. I used cheddar, extra sharp cheddar, and generic velveeta. After two of us eating this (technically 3 I guess since I'm prego), there was A LOT leftover. I'm a VERY pick 23-year old and wasn't sure about the carrot thing. I'm glad I tried it. This is a keeper.
This was very easy & my kids really enjoyed it!
Creative use of mac and cheese, thanks! I took a shortcut and used a boxed mix of mac and cheese, so I modified the directions a bit. I boiled the noodles and carrots together & drained and then put the onion (and garlic--had to add that) and little smokies in with the mix from the box and the milk and butter, fried that for a minute, then mixed it all together. It worked just fine. I do prefer homemade mac and cheese, but when you have 20 boxes of the storebought it's hard to justify making it from scratch until the boxes are gone! I like the add ins to normal mac and cheese. Thanks for the recipe!
Instead of processed cheese, I like to used shredded sharp cheddar instead. I also like to add a little hot sauce. If you don't have Lil' Smokies, this is just as good with sliced all beef hot dogs. My kids inhale this whenever I make it--I don't usually make it for the grownups, this is usually best made when you've got kids over for a sleepover.
My kids love mac and cheese and little smokies, so I thought this would be the perfect recipe to sneak in a veggie! They loved it so much, they didn't even mind the carrots!
