DIRECTIONS

  • Cook macaroni according to package directions.
  • Drain.
  • Immediately place cooked macaroni into large bowl.
  • While still hot, stir in the butter, the cubed cheddar, and the handful of grated cheddar.
  • Mix well for one minute.
  • Add the eggs and the can of cheddar soup.
  • Mix through.
  • Season liberally with Lawry's salt and pepper.
  • Mix through.
  • At this point, I like to give it a taste (I know, I know, raw eggs, but I live dangerously), to test for seasoning.
  • Adjust seasoning as needed.
  • Add the milk and mix again.
  • Place mixture into a mid-size casserole.
  • I use an 11x8x3 or so.
  • Don't use a dish too deep or browning will be a pain.
  • Spread evenly.
  • Bake at 375 for 35-45 minutes, until golden brown and bubbly.
  • Let sit for 10-15 minutes before serving.
  • This is a very old family recipe from a woman I work with.
  • I am kind of a mac&cheese junkie and have tried many over the years.
  • This one is tops, bar none.
  • Enjoy!
  • PS If you have trouble finding Lawry's seasoned pepper, you can substitute McCormick's, not as good, but will do.
