    Kat1's Note:

    My Grandmother's delightful and VERY TASTY recipe for macaroni in cheese, which is FAR better than the kind right out of the box. Our whole family enjoys this recipe, especially the kids. She often has to make twice the recipe to satisfy just my grandpa and uncles!

    1. 1
      Cook macaroni until soft.
    2. 2
      Use a large roast-pan or bowl which you would cook casseroles in the oven, and put a thin layer of macaroni upon the bottom, and then spread cheese over that layer, and repeat this layering process until the cheese and macaroni are gone (makes about 3-4 layers each).
    3. 3
      Mix salt, pepper, eggs and milk together.
    4. 4
      Pour into layered macaroni & cheese, until filled at the top (or until it is gone).
    5. 5
      Sprinkle w/ paprika on top.
    6. 6
      Place in oven, Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes (covered).

      In my opinion I don't understand the five stars. This is about the worst I have had. Very bland and not worth giving a second thought.

      I made this on 1/29/10 as part of mine and SO's dinner. I made this recipe exactly as it was written. And about 30 minutes into the baking, I removed the cover for about 15 minutes to brown it up a bit. My SO seemed to really enjoy this, but I found it a bit on " eggy " side. But thanks for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "

      This is the recipe I was looking for. I had all of the ingredients but lacked the proper amounts. This tastes almost like my ex's Grandma's recipe. The difference (I think) is what kinds of cheeses she used. I use a combo of Colby, Cheddar, & Monterrey Jack cheeses. This is my favorite mac & cheese!!!
