This recipe comes from a 2006 edition of Southern Living. It is wonderful! I used sharp Cheddar cheese as I could not find white Cheddar.

Directions

  1. Prepare macaroni according to package directions; drain and set aside.
  2. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add sliced onions and 1 teaspoons sugar. Cook, stirring often, 15 to 20 minutes or until onions are caramel-colored.
  3. Layer half each of macaroni, onions, cheeses, and cracker crumbs in a lightly greased 13x9-inch baking dish. Layer with remaining macaroni, onions, and cheeses.
  4. Whisk together eggs and next 3 ingredients; pour over macaroni mixture.
  5. Stir together remaining cracker crumbs, melted butter, and, if desired, pecans. Sprinkle evenly over macaroni mixture.
  6. Bake at 350° for 1 hour or until golden brown and set. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
