Mac And Cheese

Mac And Cheese
Kids' Favorite
  • 2 cups macaroni
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups milk (I prefer a can of evaporated milk & 1/2 cup of milk)
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese (I prefer sharp)
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon of paprika
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the macaroni and cook, stirring occasionally until it is almost tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain, rinse with cold water and set aside.

In a large bowl, beat the eggs with the milk, 1/4 cup melted butter, cayenne pepper and a teaspoon of salt. Put half the macaroni into a buttered 2-quart casserole and top with half the cheese. Repeat. Pour the milk mixture over the macaroni and cheese.

In a small bowl, mix the bread crumbs with paprika, remaining butter and Parmesan cheese. Sprinkle the bread crumb mixture over the macaroni and bake until brown and bubbly, 40 to 45 minutes. Serve warm.
