Macaroni and cheese (also referred to as macaroni cheese in the United Kingdommarker and mac 'n' cheese in parts of the United Statesmarker and Canadamarker) was created to be a common casserole, similar to the British dish cauliflower cheese.

Packaged versions are available, consisting of boxed pasta and a cheese powder, to which are added butter (or margarine) and milk (or water). The best known of these is Kraft Dinner (Canada, where it is a genericized trademark and often simply called "KD")/Kraft Macaroni and Cheese (US) product. Extra ingredients, like ground beef, ketchup, jalapeƱos, sliced hot dogs, ham, bacon, tuna, tomatoes, broccoli, and other vegetables are sometimes incorporated into the dish. The product can be prepared in a microwave, baked in traditional oven, or cooked on a kitchen stove top.

While marketed towards children, it also appeals to adults- especially post-secondary students (and other young adults recently living on their own) due to its low cost and ease of preparation.

History

Its popularity in the United Statesmarker has been attributed to Thomas Jefferson serving it at a White Housemarker dinner in 1802, although a spontaneous and diffuse appearance of the dish is more likely.
