Golden Macaroni and Cheese
6 cups water
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter
2 1/2 cups grated mild Cheddar cheese
2 large eggs
1/2 cup milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8-inch square baking pan. In a 6-quart pot, bring the water and salt to a boil. Add the macaroni and cook for 7 minutes, stirring occasionally. Drain. Return the macaroni to the pot and stir in the butter until melted. Add 2 cups of the cheddar cheese.
In a medium bowl, beat the eggs. Beat in the milk. Add the milk mixture to the pot with the macaroni. Stir until combined. Spoon into prepared pan. Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup cheddar cheese on top.
Bake uncovered for 30 minutes or until cheese has melted and the casserole is warm throughout.
