My favorite Mac and Cheese recipe

Today happens to be National Cheese Lover's Day AND National Coffee Break Day. Wow. Two of my favorite foods! In honor of this, I am posting my favorite homemade mac n cheese recipe, which happens to bear the name of my favorite president. (This doesn't include my friend Stephanie's famous Stinky Mac, but I don't have that recipe.)

Ronald Reagan's Favorite Macaroni and Cheese
1/2 pound of elbow macaroni (approx 2 cups)
1 teaspoon butter
3 cups of grated sharp cheddar
1 cup milk
1 egg
1 tsp of dry mustard dissolved in 1 tablespoon hot tap water (optional)
1/2 teaspoon salt
ground pepper to taste

1. Preheat oven to 350 and butter a shallow 8 or 9 inch casserole.
2. Cook macaroni until slightly firm, drain, then mix with butter and all but 1/2 cup of cheese.
3. Transfer to casserole pan.
4. Beat together milk, egg mustard salt and pepper; pour mixture over casserole and top with leftover cheese.
5. Bake for 45 minutes until slightly crusty and brown. Serve hot.

My kids devour this; I have to make a double batch now to feed my crew of seven.

  1. Nice recipe and thanks for shared it. I usually avoid to eat cheese. But it is favorite of my wife. SO for her I like this.
