While the pasta cooks, add 1/4 cup butter to a saucepan and allow it to melt, then whisk in 1/4 cup flour. Slowly stir in 1 cup milk, and cook until the mixture thickens. Add in the Velveeta chunks and continue stirring until the cheese melts completely, and then stir in the cooked macaroni. Transfer the mixture to a casserole dish and sprinkle the top with shredded cheddar cheese and cracker crumbs before finishing it in the oven.
One way to enhance macaroni and cheese is to add ground beef to the mixture. The recipe for Cheeseburger Mac uses one pound of lean ground beef.
