Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat your oven 350 degrees.
  • Boil your macaroni per directions on the box.
  • Drain macaroni very well.
  • While macaroni is still hot, add your 2 cups of cheddar cheese (3 if you're not going to put the extra cup on top 10-15 minutes prior to being done).
  • Stir until melted.
  • Combine your eggs, sour cream, salt, pepper & milk .
  • Add butter (your butter will still be in pieces).
  • Add to your macaroni mixture.
  • Stir that up until mixed.
  • Pour into your casserole dish and bake for 30 minutes, add your remaining 1 cup of cheese (optional) and bake another 15 minutes.
  • You do need the 40-45 minutes baking time even if you choose not to put the additional cup of cheddar cheese on top.
  • Let sit for about 5-10 minutes.
  • *Note* If you are not planning on putting cheese on top I would use that extra cup of cheese in with the 2 cups when preparing.
  • I've used both mild and sharp cheddar.
  • Don't use finely shredded cheese.
  • Regular shredded works the best.
  • I hope you enjoy it.
  • Also, I hope I have the prep time close, you never know how long a pot of water is going to take to boil. :)

    Can you prep this the night before and put it into the fridge then the following day bake it?

    There can never be too many Mac n' Cheese recipes because they all seem to vary with one ingredient or another. I love how you have combined your Grandma's recipe with one from Paula Deen. Thank you LittleMissey for a "5" fork winner!

    Sounds easy and scrumptious. My boyfriend is always asking me to make home made mac and cheese and this recipe looks like a good start, thanks.
