So I have cheese powder, butter powder, sour cream powder and powdered milk, (packitGourmet items), I want to make a cheesy, creamy mac n cheese on my next trip. I will dehydrate my pasta before I head out. Can anyone help me out with getting  the mix correct for a tastey cheesy mac n cheese FBC style?

I know this is not what you're asking for, but have you tried the mac & cheese from Enertia Trail foods? I think they have a couple different mac &cheese meals now, but the original one was called Max Patch, and I think it is now sold as one of the Coleman meals. It's a pretty basic mac & cheese w/ some veg substance in it--peas, IIRC.

Sarbar, if I remember correctly, I think those are the recipes I shared with you several years ago and are still the ones I use all of the time. They are fabulous !!

GottaGamble: you can't go wrong with those. For pasta, I use precooked/ dehydrated small shells and it's comes out wonderfully.

For something a little different, but even better than mac & cheese, get a bag of the frozen hash brown shreds from your local grocery and dry them straight out of the bag.

Mix the cheddar sauce powder with them , some bacon bits or dried ham and it's one of my top 10 favorite recipes.

Or you could go to the store and buy "Annies" which is a lot healthier than the Kraft gunk....
