The plan is to have some Kraft Mac 'n Cheese for (late) lunch, any ideas on how I could dress it up?

Asked by Jude (32098points) January 25th, 2010

You know Canadians do love their ketchup and we put it on a plethora of noms (that’s what I always have on my Kraft). I want to try something different..

Add tuna or broccoli. Or make it like regular then fry it in a skillet with a little butter. SO GOOD.

Now I want mac and cheese.

Go ahead and laugh, but whenever I have mac and cheese, I mix in some goldfish crackers and top it off with some Frank’s Red Hot. Yum.

Bacon bits and broccoli!

eponymoushipster's avatar

boil a hot dog and cut it up into the mac.

you can still add ketchup.

p.s. – i thought you all love mayo.

gemiwing's avatar

vegetables of any sort (I like carrots and peas), ground beef, or just add some chili powder to it for a little kick.

Jude's avatar

@eponymoushipster no, not mayo.

We get razzed by the American peeps for putting ketchup on a bunch of things, and we do love our Ketchup flavoured chips. Dee-lish

Have it on your most formal china, with a cloth napkin and a glass of Chateauneuf du Pape.

@jmah i put ketchup on stuff, and im 100% not canadian. i have some spicy ketchup from ukraine i absolutely love, too. you should try it. the chips are meh, but you have quesadilla tostitos, so i can’t say too much.

AstroChuck's avatar

Wait a minute. You’re from Canada and you call it Mac ‘n Cheese? I thought all you Canucks called it Kraft Dinner.

Mix in rice…

It’s amazing.

janbb's avatar

@AstroChuck “Man ‘n Cheese” is a whole ‘nother – and very tasty – dish!

aprilsimnel's avatar

Zucchini mixed in and all topped with bread crumbs!
Tuna and Colman’s Mustard! WOO! that’s spicy!

AstroChuck's avatar

@janbb- Haha. Now your posting makes no sense. :)

janbb's avatar

Curse you, Skeletor!

AstroChuck's avatar

@janbb- Ah, cool your jets, sister. I gave you a little lurve before fixin’ my typo.

janbb's avatar

Well, a little lurve does soothe my ruffled feathers.

Try cubing some chicken, fry it with curry power added just before you add to M & C. Then add frozen broccoli. Stir all together with breadcrumbs or crackers on top. Put in medium heat oven for 15 minutes.

Add some “real” cheese?

Jude's avatar

I was hungry, so, I decided to keep it simple. I didn’t have a lot of the ingredients mentioned above. Next time, though, I’ll do it up with a some chicken, or tuna, some veggies, seasoning and bread crumbs (oh, and the “real” cheese). This time, though, I went with some maple baked beans on the side and some Frank’s Red Hot on top of the Kraft. Git in my bellay!

None of this is actually food. Are you people really eating this stuff?

MissAusten's avatar

@susanc According to my father in law, it’s important to eat “fake” food every now and then so when you accidentally ingest some in a restaurant or at a party your body doesn’t go into shock and die.

Jeruba's avatar

Seconding @janbb, you must also light dinner candles in your crystal candlesticks.

sjmc1989's avatar

Ok am I the only one that has no idea what Frank’s Red Hot is?

Shuttle128's avatar

Ketchup or tomato is always good. Maybe some hot sauce (I do all of these on occasion). If you bake it with tomato it’s extra good.

YARNLADY's avatar

@susanc I looked it up I think the noodles are probably real.

Naked_Homer's avatar

I add just a little onion salt and a table spoon of light sour cream

sjmc1989's avatar

@jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities Mhmm thank you I might just have to try that.

susanc's avatar

@YARNLADY – true. But noodles are essentially empty calories.
@MissAusten – that makes so much sense! I“m going downtown right now to get me some
corn dogs and Pepsi.

MissAusten's avatar

Yeah, that man is full of priceless wisdom. Either that or he made it up as an excuse for feeding my kids all kinds of crap when we’re visiting.

I haven’t done this for a long time, but I used to mix tuna and peas into Mac N Cheese.

If I had a million dollars
We wouldn’t have to eat Kraft Dinner
But we would eat Kraft Dinner
Of course we would, we’d just eat more

@row4food If I had a million dollars. Well, I’d buy you a monkey….Haven’t you always wanted a monkey?
