We had what was called a Christmas dinner, I won't even go into that. But they did have Boston Market Mac and cheese. It was pretty good. I like my mac and cheese on the somewhat dry side with a hard crust, but my children do not. Does anyone have the Boston Market clone, or do you have a creamy mac and cheese that your family likes. I want to have this on Christmas day, and keep in warm in a crock pot. Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Gail
This in one of my family's favorite comfort foods! It's so close to the real thing! I hope you all enjoy it as much as we do!

Cook pasta; drain well. While pasta is cooking, put remaining ingredients in top of double boiler over simmering water. Stir with wire whisk until smooth. Keep cheese mixture warm till pasta is cooked and drained. Stir pasta into cheese.
I'm a terrible Mac & Cheese critic, as a kid I always ate the mac & cheese that came in potpie tins & just loved it. After tinkering ALOT the closest I could come was this:
2 cups of elbow macaroni (cooked)
4 Tbsp butter
3 Tbsp flour
2 cups milk (lower fat milk works fine)
1 Chicken Boulion Cube
1 1/2 cup shredded Mild Cheddar
1 cup cubed velveeta type cheese
1/2 tsp salt
pepper to taste
In a saucepan, melt butter and stir in flour til smooth. Gradually add milk and bring mixture to a boil, add boulion and stir for 2 minutes (or until mixture starts to thicken). Lower heat to a simmer and add cheeses and salt & pepper. When the cheese is melted mix together with cooked macaroni. Place in a greased casserole dish & bake 30 min @ 375º (I like the top of mine brown & bubbly).
You could easily put this in the crock instead of baking it. I also add sausage or hot dogs or whatever suits me.
Makes about 6 servings.

Gail I am trying to bump this back to the top for you.
Blessed are those that can give without remembering and take without forgetting.
