I am a mother of 3 and married to a farmer...we use products off our farm to cook with. I have been collecting old time recipes for years - trying to teach my kids how it was in the "olden days." This is a family favorite of ours! I believe the time at the dinner table is very important and something that has been lost this day in age. Enjoy!!

How to Make Creamy Mac & Cheese - this is my FAV!

Step-by-Step

  1. While boiling noodles; heat milk on low. Stir cubed cheeses into milk. Let cook on low and thicken a bit.

    Take a small amount of cheese mixture and set aside to cool so you can mix into 2 whisked eggs. (if you mix hot mixture into the eggs it will "cook" the eggs). Then you can mix the small amount into the full amount of cheese.
  2. Drain par-boiled noodles & spread in greased 9x13. Slice stick of butter and put on top of noodles. Top with melted cheese mixture. Season w salt & pepper. Then mix in w a fork.
  3. Bake @ 375 uncovered until thick...ard 20-30 min. **do NOT substitute different cheeses for these. It makes this taste completely different!!

    ***I also do this in the crock pot...Prepare the same without baking in the oven. Just put on low and cook for about 4-6 hours. Crock Pots vary.... I always top w/ additional cheese to make it look "pretty"
