First, I really shouldn't be reviewing this because I didn't follow all the instructions, but if anybody out there is like me, they might want to know what happens if they change it like I did. 1) I don't have processed cheese, so I used all regular cheddar. It didn't melt perfectly smooth all the way, but it was tolerables. 2) My cousin didn't want onions in it, so I put in a tablespoon of onion powder in. One problem: I PUT IT IN WITH THE ROUX MIXTURE. I should have thought it through and realized that the onion powder would REALLY affect the consistency of the roux, but I didn't. The recipe says put onion in with the butter, I put onion powder in with the butter. BAD IDEA. It tasted fine, but if you do onion powder DON'T DON'T PUT IT IN WITH THE ROUX! 3) I thought it looked like the recipe would have too much cheese sauce (I prefer a bit more noodle with my sauce), so I upped it to 12oz. It probably would have been better with 8oz, but 12 was fine. So now for the overall recipe: It was pretty bland. Quite a few people really liked it (someone said she doesn't even like Mac 'n' Cheese, but she really liked this recipe), but I didn't really like it. It needed something, so even though this is like the 5th recipe for Mac 'n' Cheese I've tried, I will keep searching. Thank anyway GEPETTO!
