I was given a link from someone before I found Zaar and Maybe it was your recipe because it is the exact same recipe. I have made many recipes for mac and cheese, complicated ones, sauces etc... This one is the BEST and easiest recipe I have tried, it amazes me how the eggs make a creamy sauce type texture. The only difference is I grate the cheese.

I was intrigued by this recipe since it was not the traditional white sauce/melted cheese poured over noodles. I will say I was a little unsure when I started putting everything together thinking I didn't have enough noodles to go with all the cheese and the milk/egg mixture. The final results were a nice surprise as there were plenty of noodles, nice cheese layers and an egg type custard holding everything together. My husband loved having the separate cheese layers! Figured I could serve this with a salad next time and I'd have my meal - lots of protien and carbohydrates in the macaroni and cheese. Only thing to note is upon reheating there was a little weeping of the custard mixture but I just poured off the liquid - reheats nicely.

This was not what I expected. The texture was more like a souffle or custard. The only change I made was to use two different kinds of cheddar cheese (half white and half yellow) and 1/8 teasp. dry mustard. Took 55 min. to cook. Flavor was very good but hubby asked me not to make it again because he didn't like the texture.
