Rachel’s Macaroni Pie

It’s hard to believe that Christmas, 2012, is over and we are at the door of a brand new year! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, and that you will be blessed in 2013.

This post is #200! And I need just 35 more views to the blog in order to reach 7000! You readers are amazing!  Thanks to all of you who have shared my blog with your friends!

I plan to make this recipe for our New Year’s Day buffet.  We usually end up snacking most of the day while we watch the parades and some football games.  My friend Rachel shared this recipe the other day, and I can’t wait to try it. I have heard of macaroni pie, but have only had just mac ‘n cheese.

1-1/2 c. uncooked macaroni

4 Tbsp. butter, melted

1 pound sharp cheddar cheese, grated

2 eggs

1 c. milk (evaporated milk is fine, too)

1/2 tsp. salt

pepper to taste

Cook and drain the macaroni. It can be just a tad undercooked since it will cook more in the oven. Return pasta to large sauce pan. While pasta is still hot, add melted butter and cheese. Mix well.  Beat eggs and add to mixture. Add milk and seasonings. Return to stove and cook for 3 minutes, stirring constantly.

Pour into greased casserole dish and sprinkle shredded cheddar or monterey jack on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until cheese is melted.  Broil for 5-10 minutes or until top is browned.
