So easy and yummy - I make this all year long. We eat it as the main meal with a green vegetable. It is from the Southern Living Big Book of Christmas Baking (1996).

How to Make Macaroni and Cheese

Step-by-Step

  1. Cook macaroni according to the package. In the meantime:
    1) lightly grease a 2 qt baking dish
    2) measure milk in a bowl or large measuring cup, add the eggs, salt and pepper and beat lightly
    3) shred the cheese
  2. When macaroni is cooked, strain and put 1/3 of the macaroni in the baking dish. Sprinkle with 1 cup of the cheese. Put another 1/3 of macaroni over the cheese, and top with another cup of cheese. Put the last 1/3 of macaroni on top (no cheese this time), and pour the milk mixture over the macaroni.
  3. Bake covered at 350 for 45 minutes. Uncover and add last 1 cup of cheese and sprinkle with paprika. Re-cover and let sit (turn off oven if you're leaving it on the oven rack) for 10 minutes.
