Has anyone tried Paula Desn's fried mac & cheese?  It uses leftover homemade mac: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/paula-deen/deep-fried-mac-and-cheese-recipe/index.html

I am a big Paula Dean fan and have several of her cookbooks, but I never tried that recipe!  I do have one mac. & chse. recipe that I make all the time and it's my favorite.

My recipe is nice and simple: I have a splash of milk and a few different cheeses in a bowl and melt those. While that is melting, I make the pasta. Once the pasta is done, I mix it all together. Tastes great! Add more or less cheese and milk to taste.

Mac-N-Cheese  happens to be my Grandsons favorite meal.  We make it when he comes over and spends the day or night.  He was used to the box stuff but I got him making "real" mac-n-cheese.  Now when we go to the store we try to pick different cheeses to use.
The secret ingredient in "our" mac-n-cheese is a bit of dry mustard in the white sauce.  Slowly building up to a larger amount of the dry mustard. 
When I make it for myself sometimes I like to add bacon, sun-dried tomatoes and some onion that I sauté with the roux for the white sauce.  I feel if you add much more it becomes a "casserole" and not just Mac-N-Cheese.
By the way the Mac-N-Cheese is put into a casserole pan and cheese sprinkled on top then it is baked until top cheese is golden and bubbly.  My Grandson likes his before it is baked though, I am getting him to eat the baked one, I just think he doesn't like to wait!

We like mac & cheese at our house too!  I think my kids would eat it every day if I let them.

Here is my favorite Mac. & Chs. Recipe

Double Cheese Macaroni and Cheese

8 OZ. ELBOW MACARONI, UNCOOKED
2 CUPS OF MOZZ.
2 CUPS CHEDDAR OR A CHEDDAR BLEND
1/4 CUP BUTTER OR MARGARINE
1/4 CUP ALL-PURPOSE FLOUR
2 CUPS MILK
1/2 TSP. SALT
1/8 TSP. PEPPER
1/2 CUP BREAD CRUMBS
2 TBSP. MELTED BUTTER

1.  COOK MACARONI ACCORDING TO PACKAGE DIRECTIONS; DRAIN
2.  ALTERNATE LAYERS OF MACARONI AND CHEESES IN GREASED 2 QUART BAKING DISH, BEGINNING WITH MACARONI AND ENDING WITH CHEESE.
2.  MELT THE 1/4 CUP BUTTER IN SAUCE PAN; STIR IN FLOUR TO MAKE A SMOOTH MIXTURE.  BLEND IN MILK GRADUALLY.  HEAT TO BOIL, STIRRING CONSTANTLY.
4.  COOK UNTIL SAUCE HAS THICKENED, ADD SALT AND PEPPER
5.  POUR SAUCE OVER MACARONI AND CHEESE.
6.  MIX BREAD CRUMBS, IF USED, WITH MELTED BUTTER.  SPRINKLE BUTTER OR MIXTURE OVER MACARONI AND CHEESE.
7.  CASSEROLE MAY BE COVERED AND REFRIGERATED AT THIS POINT IF DESIRED.
8.  BAKE AT 375* FOR 30 - 35 MIN.  IF REFRIGERATED, INCREASE BAKING TIME BY 10 MIN.

Enjoy!  Sometimes I sprinkle grated Parm. cheese when I do the layering.  But I am a cheese lover!!
