  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add macaroni and cook for 10 to 13 minutes or until al dente; drain.

  • In a bowl mix together the eggs, milk, and pepper. In a casserole dish, place about a third of the cooked macaroni in one layer, sprinkle with 1/2 of the cheese, then layer the rest of the macaroni and cover with the remaining cheese. Coat evenly with the egg-milk mixture. Lastly, cut slices of butter and place them on top of the cheese.

  • Bake in a preheated oven for 30 minutes or until the cheese is completely melted.

I think this recipe is really good and easy. A little rich because of the butter on top I think but otherwise delicious. If you're looking for a creamy "kraft mac and cheese" recipe this isn't it. This is more of a pasta bake. Read More

I was so excited to make homemade macaroni and cheese for the first time for my new husband when I tried this recipe. However I was pretty disappointed with the results. Mine came out very dry and wasn't flavorful. Some spots were cheesy and others just had the egg mixture on it. It needs something to make it creamier and cheesier. Read More

Not creamy at all. Cheese and mac didn't mix well. Maybe not enough cheese or perhap's processed cheese may have worked better. Read More
