Just like what Grandma used to make! If the other reviewer had lumpy sauce they didn't culture the eggs as instructed 1 Tablespoon at a time. I have been looking for a Mac n Cheese recipe like my Grandmother made and this is as close as I remember. Thanks for sharing!
My family is from the deep south - many generations so good southern cooking is something we take pride in. Thinking maybe I should change things up a bit, I made this recipe exctly as stated. I think the black pepper was WAY too much and ovrewhelming. The eggs made an odd consistency to the dish. Will not make this or recommend it to others. Sorry
This was fantastic! I used the dish it called for, but in doing so, was unable to make all of the layers! I topped with just a little bit of bread crumbs and it was amazing, even microwaved the second time! I think next time I will use an 8 inch square pan instead! Oh, and just a little heads up, even on heat setting three, it took a little while for it to start to thicken up, but hang in there, it's totally worth it!!
I didn't have chedder cheese so i used velvetta and this is so yummy and so easy , will make it a regular at our table :)
I would give this a 5 starminus the eggs. I'm from the south and use velveta cheese in replacement of the eggs I boil the velveta with milk in a sauce pan until its thick creamy. Than I pour the sauce over the half cooked macaroni be careful not to fully cook the shells. its going in the oven and will be overcooked. I like monteray jack and mexican cheese with this recipe. or if your not a yellow cheese person try this recipe with the 5 white cheeses of your choice makes a whole of difference.
Finally back to review this one mainly because I am making it again and making some changes. My family loved the original recipe. This time I changed the cheese a little by using two cups of real cheddar and two cups of velvetta. At the end I added a bit of shredded colby jack and bread crumbs to the top. Mmmmm
All is well and good but try topping this dish with some toasted buttered bread crumbs.
Before baking the dish, simply melt about a table spoon + of butter in a small frying pan,
Add about a cup of regular bread crumbs and lightly brown (toast)the bread crumbs.
Spread or sprinkle the toasted bread crumbs on top of the casserole and bake as directed.
A simple step but it does add another layer of flavor and texture to the dish.
My boyfriend is a very picky eater but he loved this mac and cheese and I even forgot to add the second can of milk and added two bags of cheese and it came out great!
