This recipe has a lot of memories for my mother and her siblings because my grandmother used to make it for my mom and her brothers, my uncles when they were little. It was a treat because the cheese was expensive for them at the time. Chemistry Information: Along with the pure substances and mixtures below there are also physical and chemical changes in this recipe. Chopping up the onions as well heating in an oven (before chemical changes occur); these are both examples of a physical change. Browning of the bread crumbs and the smell of the Mac & Cheese as one rather than as its different ingredients are both clues of a chemical change.
