Ingredients

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Cook macaroni according to package directions. Meanwhile, let the cheeses and butter stand at room temperature. Drain macaroni; transfer to a very large bowl. Add 1-1/2 cups of the shredded cheddar cheese, the cheese product, and the butter to the hot pasta; stir well to combine. Set aside.

  • In a medium bowl whisk together eggs, milk, cheese soup, and white pepper until smooth. Stir egg mixture into macaroni mixture. Spoon macaroni mixture into a 3-quart casserole dish.

  • Cover and bake for 25 minutes. Uncover and stir well. Sprinkle evenly with the remaining 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese. Bake, uncovered, for 15 to 20 minutes more or until heated through (160 degrees F) and cheese melts.

Lighten Up:

For a lighter macaroni and cheese, substitute reduced-fat versions of the cheddar cheese and cheese product. Use only 1/8 cup butter, decrease eggs to two, and use fat-free evaporated milk.

I am making this dish for a second time for another work potluck. Needless to say, it was a hit the first go round!!

3 stars--my husband LOVED it, I thought it was just OK. It tasted OK, but I thought nothing to write home about. I only used 2 eggs & it set up & came out less creamy than I would have liked. Needs a bit of salt. If I were to make it again, I'd just use 1 egg. It does make a boatload w/1# of macaroni.

i can't imagine putting eggs in mac and cheese so my question is this: Has anyone tried this recipe and left out the eggs? If so, did it taste okay? Thanks.

Horrible. There is nothing creamy about this mac and cheese. It looked creamy when I put it in the oven, but the first bite tasted like eggs. Who puts eggs in Mac and Cheese. Very disappointed and it makes a ton. I have a hard time believing this was "from the test kitchen" and they called it creamy.
