There are too many things wrong with this recipe, such as the liquids, sugar, and seasoning. A white sauce makes a better base than using eggs. Use half & half or whole milk, and extra sharp cheese. I use 2 to 4 different cheeses in my mac & cheese recipes. I sometime use canned soups as a base, such as Cream of Mushroom, Chicken or Celery. I have over 325 mac & cheese recipes in my collection. This subject is so close to my heart, as it reminds me of my mom so much.
I definitely would cut way back on the sugar next time as well as cut the amount of pepper in half. The recipe was either extremely sweet or extremely spicy. I'll pass on this recipe in the future.
