    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly butter a deep 2 1/2-quart casserole.
    2. 2
      Bring the large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the oil, then the elbow macaroni, and cook until the macaroni is just tender, about 7 minutes. Do not overcook. Drain well. Return to the cooking pot.
    3. 3
      In a small saucepan, melt eight tablespoons of the butter. Stir into the macaroni. In a large bowl, mix the Muenster, mild and sharp Cheddar, and Monterey Jack cheeses. To the macaroni, add the half-and-half, 2 1/2 cups of the shredded cheese, the cubed Velveeta, and the eggs. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to the buttered casserole. Sprinkle with the remaining 1 1/2 cup of shredded cheese and dot with the remaining one tablespoon of butter.
    4. 4
      Bake until it's bubbling around the edges, about 35 minutes. Serve hot.

      This is a wonderful mac & cheese. It has such a wonderful flavor and the variety of cheese makes this dish outstanding! This was easy to prepare and well worth the effort. My family LOVED it!!!! I will be making this again soon.

      A great mac & cheese, but labor intensive. The extra butter on top just before baking seemed a bit over the top. It took me 45 minutes prep time, not 15 minutes. This makes much more than 4-6 servings. Made for the Cook-A-Thon for Kathy and Liza. Thanks.
