You get the creamy kind by just pouring cheese over macaroni. Congealed is baked.
I prefer congealed
Congealed is such a lovely word.
It is the food of the gods, but only when served creamy and made with Velveeta. Extra points if someone emptied a can of Rotel into it.
I''ve never liked mac and cheese ever since I had it in elementary school. It was disgusting then and I just can''t get past that memory.
I maintain a whole foods diet (incl. organic), but Kraft Mac & Cheese is the only exception. I have made M&C from scratch with the best ingredients, and it''s just not the same. Kraft''s chemical goodness cannot be recreated outside of a lab.
Kraft Deluxe mac and cheese in the blue box (with the little can of Velveeta cheese sauce) is the ultimate. Throw in the Rotel and bliss out.
1. You sound fat.\
creamy with a crunchy gratineed top.
I much prefer mine congealed and cooked under the broiler for the last few minutes to get that crust on the top.
Anyone, ANYONE I SAY, who thinks a boxed Mac & Cheese is worth eating should be taken out and slapped silly in public. The only thing a box of Kraft Mac & Cheese is good for is picking up a dog turd in your from yard.
If you think that by throwing a bunch of cheese on some cooked macaroni you''ll get "macaroni and cheese", you''re wrong.\
You need to make a white sauce (bechamel sauce in proper foodie terms) and add cheese to the sauce. Then toss in your cooked macaroni. Then if you like it just creamy, serve it as is (just like the blue box stuff). If you like it congealed, pour it into a baking dish, top it with some bread crumbs and more cheese and bake.\
I like both, it depends on how badly I need comfort food at any particular moment.
It should be with seven cheeses.
Another vote for creamy but served au gratin.
In the south they apparently often use eggs in it. I tried this once but didn't care for the texture at all.
I tried a recipe including eggs. I didn't like the texture at all.

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
