Yield:
1 9x13-inch dish

Ingredients

  • cooking spray

  • 1 (16 ounce) package elbow macaroni

  • 1 cup evaporated milk

  • 4 extra large eggs

  • 1 (16 ounce) container sour cream

  • 2 teaspoons seasoned salt

  • 2 teaspoons ground black pepper

  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar-Monterey Jack cheese blend

  • 6 slices processed cheese food (such as Velveeta®), torn into 4 pieces

  • ½ cup butter, melted

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook elbow macaroni in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 8 minutes. Drain; pour macaroni into the prepared dish.

  3. Beat eggs, sour cream, seasoned salt, and black pepper into a smooth mixture; stir Cheddar cheese and Cheddar-Monterey Jack cheese into mixture until thoroughly combined. Pour over macaroni and mix well. Top casserole with torn pieces of processed cheese. Drizzle melted butter over casserole, especially along the sides.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until casserole is bubbling and cheese has melted, about 30 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can substitute low-fat cheese and use 2%-milk Velveeta(R) cheese slices for a lower fat gram count. If you like the cheese extra brown, cook an extra 10 minutes.
