That sounds like what my family makes as well–it's like a casserole, just as you said. We don't use saltines, though. We use breadcrumbs and scoop large portions of it onto everyone's plates and pour stewed tomatoes over the top. Delicious.

Another difference, my family doesn't serve tomatoes or anything else on top of it. It's just a really, really good casserole to us.

With a lot of cheese. That's important. I think I'll eat anything so long as it's smothered in cheese.

I don't love it or hate it. I grew up eating a lot of things Americans would consider a little more exotic like gravy fries ( Canadian thing. ) and whatnot. I've tried things like fish eye soup and actually liked it, so I might not be the most average indicator of liking foods.

And they're not biscuits Ozone. Biscuits here are different. Saltines are crackers.

These are what “crackers” (or Saltines) are to us Americans; we usually eat them with soups or salads:



…And these are “biscuits” to us. They are like dinner rolls; we spread butter and/or jam on them, and eat them hot with dinner. They're also good for breakfast with sausage gravy on top.

I like macaroni and cheese. When it's done right.

When you make macaroni and cheese, you can't put in too much cheese. You can't cook the macaroni for too long, or it will be soft. Also, it depends on what kind you get. The craft kind is okay, but the noodles are too small. The one that comes in little shell-shaped macaroni is very good.

Also, it is personal preference. Some people hate it because of its high cholesterol. Other people just don't like the taste. The rest of the people don't like the idea of noodles mixed with cheese.

We all like different kinds of food… People think it's weird that I hate chocolate and peanut butter. But that's okay.

This year, school's full of BS!!!

MACANDCHEESEDELIC, BABY, YEAH! Macaroni and cheese is by far one of my most favorite foods in the world! Oh, it makes my mouth water just thinking about it! I tell ya, all this talk about macaroni and cheese makes me hungry for a macaroni and cheese sandwich (Sorry if I'm making you queasy, ozoneocean, but it is)! No matter how my homemade or processed macaroni and cheese is prepared–provided that it's prepared well–I'll eat it anyway.

Though I'm a very picky eater, I'll sometimes eat just about anything (and everything).

A man after my own heart :)

Although putting it on a sandwich is maybe a LITTLE far…

Nah, american biscuits aren't quite scones. Unless you like to eat scones with beef roasts and gravy :) Biscuits are very bland and dry, mostly flour and water. I think they were invented originally to slop up the extra fat/gravy on a plate or something… that's about all they're good for (I don't like them much.) Although, the type of scone you'd use to top a casserole might be close. I don't think there's quite a British equivalent to american biscuits, just like there isn't an American equivalent to yorkshire puddings.

Scones for tea on the other hand are delicious, the kind with fruits and such in :) Especially warm, I don't even need butter :)

They don't have iced tea in England, that would be anathema to all they believe.

A lot of times, people in England call dessert ‘pudding’ even though whatever they're eating wouldn't be pudding… or what americans would consider pudding anyway. British pudding I'm told is based on suet, which sounds like something icky that pigs eat :)

OK back to cheese related things!

Cheddar in England is usually white, if it's yellow it's called dyed cheddar :lol:

“American Cheese” is just called “cheese” here, haha. Sometimes ‘slice cheese’ if they're feeling generous.

Dutch masadam is the best sandwich cheese ever

Boxed Mac & Cheese is good, homemade Mac & Cheese can be orgasmic.



I'm a big fan.

I don't mind the boxed stuff if I don't have a lot of options, but I hate the other macaroni when there's random stuff thrown in there, and I hate, hate, hate it when there's egg in it! Eeeeew.
