    CelticMyst's Note:

    This isn't one of those faddy Mac & Cheese with the a Creamy Bechamel Sauce--this is EXACTLY what it says--MAC & Cheese. I make this when ever I need REAL comfort food--or when I think of my dad.

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 375°.
    2. 2
      Butter a round casserole dish (I use a 6-inch deep x 8-inch straight sided covered casserole dish).
    3. 3
      Cook the macaroni according to package directions; drain and rinse with cold water.
    4. 4
      Grate the cheese and KEEP in separate piles.
    5. 5
      Place a cup of the cooked macaroni on bottom of greased casserole dish, salt and pepper *lightly* - (*you will be doing this each layer so careful with the salt*); top with a handful of cheese (it doesn't matter which one you start with -- you will be alternating the cheeses); dot the cheese with a little bit of butter -- repeat until all the macaroni is used (finish with cheese!).
    6. 6
      Top the last layer of cheese with a bit more butter.
    7. 7
      Mix together the egg and cream (half-n-half), Pour over the casserole. Place the casserole on a cookie sheet (it has a tendency to bubble over). Cover the casserole for the first 30 minutes. After the first 30 minutes, remove the casserole top and bake for another 20-30 minutes until the cheese on top is melted and nice and crusty.
