Whatcha Got Cookin' by Ellen Watts

 
 
 

My mama was a wonderful cook, but “bless her heart,” she could not make Mac ‘n Cheese that was edible.  Therefore, I never made Mac ’n Cheese unless it came from a box.

Several months ago I started following a vlog on Facebook. The author of this vlog (videos) is the former student of a friend of mine.  The vlog is Cookin’ Cuttin’ Up & Ceepin’ It Real.  Lisa made what she calls the easiest Mac ‘n Cheese on one of her videos and I decided to try it.  Yep, it was easy, good and it made a lot!  I have brought it to several meals at the church and it was well received.  All the credit goes to CookinWithLisa.com.

 

Nancy's Mac 'n Cheese

by Terry Helm Eason

STEP 1

In a large foil pan, melt 1 stick of butter in a 350° oven.

STEP 2

In a large mixing bowl, add:

  • 1 egg
  • 1½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp dry mustard*
  • 4 cups milk**

Beat together until well incorporated.  Set aside.

STEP 3

When the butter is melted, pour in 16 oz of dry macaroni noodles (do not cook). Stir to make sure all noodles are coated with the butter.  Pour 2 cups of shredded sharp cheddar cheese over the noodles.  Do not stir.

STEP 4

Pour milk mixture over the cheese and noodles.  Do not stir.

STEP 5

Place in oven, uncovered, at 350° for 40-45 minutes.

 

Additional Notes

* You can add other spices if desired.  For example:  paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, etc.

** You can use any milk combination equaling 4 cups.  For creamy Mac n Cheese, use some half and half or heavy cream mixed together with 2% milk.
