Nanny G's Macaroni and Cheese

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Vicki G.

This is my grandmother's recipe which I grew up on. It is my personal favorite, and without a doubt--the ultimate comfort food. I even love to eat it cold. It is one of my favorite side dishes, since it goes especially well with chicken and pork. Note: this is not a creamy mac & cheese recipe.

This is the BOMB! Made it for Thanksgiving and Christmas this year. Did a double batch & both times used part sharp Cheddar and part Gruyere and only 2 eggs & cooked in my Grandmother's vintage casserole dish. Felt like I stepped back in time. Seriously the best. Best to eat at once - like that will be a problem. You will have to tear yourself away from it. Thanks for sharing your recipe Vicki G. We all thought it was just the BEST!!!
