    Hungry Homemade Mac'n'Cheese

    Advertisements
    Ok can't take credit for this recipe because it's from Divas Can Cook but I've made it and sometimes I make slight alterations but it's gooood!


    Ingredients (make a 9 x 9 inch pan)
    3 cups macaroni, uncooked
    2 eggs
    1/2 cup heavy cream
    1 1/2 cups milk
    salt & pepper
    paprika (optional)
    1 cup smoked cheddar cheese, shredded (a must)
    8 oz. velvetta, shredded (feel free to cut back on the velvetta if you donít want it to be really creamy)
    1 cup sharp cheddar (can use less if you donít like a sharp taste in your mac n cheese)
    1 cup colby & monteray jack, shredded (cheese blend)

    Preheat oven to 350
    Step 1.) Cook macaroni until al dente. (Look on the back of the box to see how long you need to cook your pasta for it to reach al dente texture. Do not overcook or you will have a mushy baked mac n cheese.) When pasta is done, drain and set aside.

    Step 2.) In a large bowl, add milk, heavy cream & cheeses (except for the smoked cheddar). Stir to combine.

    Step 3.) Taste the milk mixture and add salt & pepper until it has a good taste. This will help avoid having a plain, bland bake macaroni & cheese. Uggh!

    Step 4.) When you are content with the taste, add in the eggs. Stir well until combined.

    Step 5.) Butter a 9 x 9 inch baking dish, and pour macaroni in.

    Step 6.) Pour cheese mixture over macaroni & top with smoked cheddar cheese. Sprinkle with paprika and/or black pepper, if desired.

    Step 7.) Bake for 35-45 minutes. Do not overbake. It may be a bit jiggly when you take it out of the oven. It will firm up as it cool.

    Step 8.) Let cool for about 10-20 minutes to fully set.

    This sounds good, i've always just done the simple mac and cheese my mom has done. Elbow noodles, velvetta and milk to make it creamy. I'll have to try this, thanks for sharing!!

    I just stick it in the fridge when I get it home and I don't pull out until I'm ready to shred it, when it's cold it's harder. They also sell bags of shredded velveeta here (Kroger or Walmart)
