Baked Mac and Cheese

Mac and Cheese is everyone's favorite at my house.  Between my hubby and my nephews there are never any leftovers...and if there are you better be first on line.  Mac and Cheese is good for the soul.  That's why they call it soul food.  This is a perfect dish with country fried chicken and some mashed potatoes.


1 pound elbow macaroni
2 tbsp of butter
2 tbsp of flour
2 cups of milk
2 eggs (beaten)
6 cups of extra sharp cheddar cheese (very cheesy)
(or use a mix of cheeses like Monterey Jack, Colby, Asiago)

Set oven to 350 degree F

In a large pot of boiling, salted water cook the pasta to al dente.  In a separate pot melt the butter and then whisk in the flour.  Keep cooking and stirring for about 5 minutes.   Stir in the milk slowly and make sure to break down the flour and there are no lumps.  Keep stirring and simmer for about 7 to 10 minutes. Until thick, then add 4 cups of the cheese.  Fold the macaroni and eggs into the mix and pour into a baking casserole dish. Top with the remaining 2 cups of cheese.  Cook in the oven for 30 minutes until cheese is crusty and bubbly.  Enjoy with some grilled chicken or ribs!!
