This is the macaroni I grew up on. Nothing is added to it like meat or soup etc. I like a creamy sharp cheesy taste like my mom made. The secret ingredient is what makes this the best I've tasted.

Ingredients

  • ·
    1 lb. box elbow macaroni, cooked al denta
  • ·
    16 oz. extra sharp cheddar cheese (store brand works fine)
  • ·
    1/2 gal. butter milk (or however needed for your particular dish so that the elbows are completely covered)

    1 stick butter
  • ·
    1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • ·
    2 eggs beaten
  • ·
    pepper to taste

How to Make Old Fashioned Mac and Cheese

Step-by-Step

  1. Boil elbows in highly salted water. Drain. While elbows are boiling, in large saucepan, heat butter and cheese until melted. Add 4 cups buttermilk, dry mustard and eggs. Heat until thoroughly melted and blended. Add to drained elbows. Stir together. Pepper to taste. Add more buttermilk to just the top of elbows. Put 4 or 5 slices of American Cheese on top. Bake uncovered in a 350 degree preheated oven for 55 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
  2. NOTE: Even if you hate buttermilk you will love this. The buttermilk just gives it that sharp pungent taste that you crave in macaroni and cheese dishes.
