Called Schinkenbegrabnis in German. It's Ham and Cheese Macaroni.
- Bring salted water to the boil and gently add the macaroni. Cook until tender, that is about 10 to 15 minutes. Strain and while still in the sieve pass quickly under cold running water.
- Chop the ham into small pieces, then put with the macaroni in a casserole. Season with salt and pepper.
- Beat the eggs and the cream together and pour over the macaroni. Sprinkle with cheese, and bake in a 350F oven until the sauce has cooked and become a light brown.
We really enjoyed this casserole! I used a combo of Cheddar and Mozzarella cheese, and lots of leftover ham. I did do one thing differently, I made a roux with a mixture of milk and cheese, and poured it on top. I did this only because we thought we would like it a bit saucier and cheesier. I am sure it would have been great without it though! Thanks for posting!
This was good. I thought the baking instructions were a little vague. I started out baking for 15 minutes and the cheese was melted but the egg cream mixture didn't look done. So I covered it with aluminum foil to prevent the cheese from overcooking, and popped it back in the oven for another 15 minutes and that was just right. So next time I'll probably cover with the foil and plan on baking for 30 minutes.
I mixed in about 3/4 cup of cheese rather than sprinkle on top. It turned out really well, family liked it.
