Prep:

Cook:

1 Hr

Ingredients

2 lb
elbow macaroni, cooked
8 large
eggs
1 c
velvetta cheese, sliced into small cubes
1/2 c
butter, melted
6 c
half and half
6 c
sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
2 c
parmesan cheese, freshly shredded, divided
1 1/2 c
mozzarella cheese, shredded
2 c
asiago cheese, shredded
1 c
havarti cheese, shredded
1 c
muenster cheese, shredded
1/8 tsp
salt
1 Tbsp
black pepper
2 c
breadcrumbs, around 4 slices of bread
4 Tbsp
butter, melted

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Add the macaroni and cook until slightly al dente, about 8 minutes. Drain and set aside to keep warm.
2
Whisk the eggs in a large bowl.
3
Add the Velveeta, 1 stick melted butter and 2 cups of the half-and-half to the large bowl of eggs. Add the warm macaroni tossing until the cheese has melted and the mixture is smooth. Add the remaining half-and-half; 1 cup of the Parmesan cheese, and the remaining shredded cheeses, and salt and pepper, tossing until completely combined in the large bowl.
4
Pour the mixture into large buttered baking dish.
5
Melt 4 tablespoons of butter in non-stick fry pan, medium heat. (Now, I use real bread and slice it into cubes about 3/8”, like little tiny croutons.) Add breadcrumbs to the melted butter and fry them for about 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Add 1 cup shredded Parmesan to breadcrumbs. Sprinkle mixture evenly over casserole. Bake covered with foil for 35-40 minutes. Uncover and bake another 15-20 minutes more for a touch of a “crusty” top. Remove, let stand 5 minutes.
Enjoy~
