The Mother of All Mac and Cheese Recipes

I did it. I "created" the perfect baked mac & cheese recipe. A few of you will remember I posted another mac & cheese recipe on my facebook weeks ago. Scratch that. This one is much, much better, I promise.

I borrowed 2 recipes from Mrs. Paula Deen. Hey ya'll #1 & hey ya'll #2 and combined them into the most perfect, creamiest, yummiest comfort food you can imagine.

Here it is. Share and be merry. :)

4 cups cooked elbow macaroni, drained
3 cups grated cheddar cheese (use 2 cups sharp and 1 cup mild if you really wanna be fancy)
3 eggs, beaten
1 cup milk
1 can of cheese soup
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup of Italian breadcrumbs
sprinkle of nutmeg if you like

*cup of diced up ham (optional)

Once you have the macaroni cooked and drained, place in a large bowl and while still hot and add the cheddar. In a separate bowl, combine the remaining ingredients and add to the macaroni mixture. Pour macaroni mixture into a casserole dish and bake for 30 to 45 minutes. Top with additional cheese if desired.

  1. She has a fantastic looking crock pot macaroni and cheese recipe. I want to try it for Christmas. This sounds yummy as well.
