Macaroni and cheese is considered by many to be a popular American comfort food. There is some debate over the history of this cheesy dish. However, the overall consensus is that this delicious dish was first cooked up in America in the 19th century.
Mac and cheese became a true American staple in the 1930's when a now industry leader in boxed dinners (no introduction needed) introduced mac and cheese as a fast and easy to cook meal.
