I was given a link from someone before I found Zaar and Maybe it was your recipe because it is the exact same recipe. I have made many recipes for mac and cheese, complicated ones, sauces etc... This one is the BEST and easiest recipe I have tried, it amazes me how the eggs make a creamy sauce type texture. The only difference is I grate the cheese.
I was intrigued by this recipe since it was not the traditional white sauce/melted cheese poured over noodles. I will say I was a little unsure when I started putting everything together thinking I didn't have enough noodles to go with all the cheese and the milk/egg mixture. The final results were a nice surprise as there were plenty of noodles, nice cheese layers and an egg type custard holding everything together. My husband loved having the separate cheese layers! Figured I could serve this with a salad next time and I'd have my meal - lots of protien and carbohydrates in the macaroni and cheese. Only thing to note is upon reheating there was a little weeping of the custard mixture but I just poured off the liquid - reheats nicely.
This was not what I expected. The texture was more like a souffle or custard. The only change I made was to use two different kinds of cheddar cheese (half white and half yellow) and 1/8 teasp. dry mustard. Took 55 min. to cook. Flavor was very good but hubby asked me not to make it again because he didn't like the texture.
Joanne I am sorry you did not like it. I should have mentioned that this is different than most macaroni and cheese recipes. It is suppose to have a custard type texture, not the creamy cheesy texture most are familiar with. Thanks for trying it.
Used colby jack cheese topped with panko bread crumbs and pecorino romano cheese YUM!
Great recipe. First time trying real mac and cheese. I like the eggs in it. It keeps it together. I grated the cheese. Next time I'll add bacon bits. I'll keep this one.
I made this with 24 ozs (3 cups) of grated cheese layered with the macaroni. It was very good this way. Next time I will try it layered with the sliced cheese.
My kids actually liked it!!! They never like anything! Great!
I love this one...I put butter in 2 corning ware pans, dice some onion and microwave it before I add the macaroni - I also use a few types of cheese both grated and sliced...whatever I have in the fridge - and add a few sprinkles of "greek seasoning" to the milk/egg mix before pouring it over the macaroni. YUMMY!!!!
This was a great recipe. It was very good and the family loved it.
