Not Well Kraft(ed)

Don't fall for the Kraft Homestyle Delux Macaroni & Cheese Dinner. You'd be better off buying the less expensive Kraft little blue box of mac and cheese and adding your own ingredients. You'll have a party in your tummy when you eat this doctored version.

Put your water on to boil for the macaroni.

Make two pieces of toast. Butter them and dice them into 1/4 inch cubes. Set aside. (Kraft gives you the puniest crumbs. They looks like what's left at the bottom of the cereal box.)

Wait for your water to boil.
1/2 stick butter in a 4 quart casserole. (In the microwave.)
the little cheese packet from the mix and stir.
1 1/4 cups heavy cream (Yours will be rich and creamy.)
2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese (Yours will actually taste like cheese.)

Cook your macaroni for 10 minutes and drain. Add to cheese mixture. Stir. Top with bread cubes. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Since you foolishly purchased two, throw the additional bag of Kraft Homestyle Delux Mac and Cheese in the trash.
