Ready In:




  • Boil macaroni and drain thoroughly. Stir in butter and egg.
  • Mix salt and mustard with 1 tablespoons hot water. Add to milk. Add the cheese, leaving enough to sprinkle on top. Pour into buttered casserole, add milk, sprinkle with cheese.
  • Bake at 350F for about 45 minutes or until custard is set and top is crusty.
  • I like to sprinkle the bread crumbs atop the mac mixture to get a crunchy crust.

  1. Excellent! The egg and sharp cheddar make the difference.
  2. This is an excellant dish. My daughter's friend brought it to us when she was recovering from surgery. We had alot of food so we ate it the next day. We used the microwave to heat it so we could do individual servings. I will definately make this dish when I need a dish to take to someone.
  3. I made this recipe as a last minute item for a family gathering. It was so simple and delicious. I made a double recipe and we had no leftovers. If you get the chance do yourself a favor and try this.
  4. This is the best Macaroni and Cheese I have ever had and DOH loved it too, he is hard to please so that means a lot. ER Canada.
  5. Delicious! I added the bread crumbs on top, too and happy I did. Everyone had 2nds. Will absolutely make this again. We had it with a chicken grilled in the cocorico on the Big Green Egg. YUM **This was saved in my Top 2008 Recipes Cookbook.


Mom to one, cook to many. I've been cooking and baking since I was four years old. My beloved easy-bake oven is to blame, because of one chocolate light bulb baked cake and I was hooked for life! I love to cook for friends and family and they are MORE than happy to be the receiver of my talents. I get asked a lot for my cookies, pastries and soups.
