This is an old recipe from Grandma Carr. She got surplus cheese in large blocks and used it to make this dish.

1 pkg
elbow macaroni (1 pound)
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 c
finely crushed soda cracker crumbs or crumbs from toasted bread

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook and drain macaroni. Heat milk, eggs, butter, and cheese in a small saucepan until cheese is melted. Stir together macaroni, cheese mixture and salt and pepper. Pour into a buttered casserole and bake for 20-30 minutes until just beginning to brown.
Optional: Grandma often added some finely crushed soda crackers on top of casserole during the last 10 minutes of baking to give the dish a little crunch.
