  • About This Recipe

    “My Grandmother’s delightful and VERY TASTY recipe for macaroni in cheese, which is FAR better than the kind right out of the box. Our whole family enjoys this recipe, especially the kids. She often has to make twice the recipe to satisfy just my grandpa and uncles!”


  • 2cupsmacaroni( uncooked)
  • 1 1/4 cupscheddar cheese( shredded)
  • 2eggs
  • 2 1/2 cupsmilk
  • 1/4 teaspoonpepper
  • 1teaspoonsalt
  • paprika
  • Directions

  • Cook macaroni until soft.
  • Use a large roast-pan or bowl which you would cook casseroles in the oven, and put a thin layer of macaroni upon the bottom, and then spread cheese over that layer, and repeat this layering process until the cheese and macaroni are gone (makes about 3-4 layers each).
  • Mix salt, pepper, eggs and milk together.
  • Pour into layered macaroni & cheese, until filled at the top (or until it is gone).
  • Sprinkle w/ paprika on top.
  • Place in oven, Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes (covered).
  • Enjoy!

  • “In my opinion I don’t understand the five stars. This is about the worst I have had.Very bland and not worth giving a second thought.”

  • “I made this on 1/29/10 as part of mine and SO’s dinner. I made this recipe exactly as it was written. And about 30 minutes into the baking, I removed the cover for about 15 minutes to brown it up a bit. My SO seemed to really enjoy this, but I found it a bit on ” eggy ” side. But thanks for posting and, ” Keep Smiling 🙂 “”

  • “This is the recipe I was looking for. I had all of the ingredients but lacked the proper amounts. This tastes almost like my ex’s Grandma’s recipe. The difference (I think) is what kinds of cheeses she used. I use a combo of Colby, Cheddar, & Monterrey Jack cheeses. This is my favorite mac & cheese!!!”

  • “This is the receipe that I was looking for. It was the one my mother made.”

  • “This is just how my grandma made it when i was younger. Much better than the box mac and cheese”

  • “It was great! Easy ingredients that I had on hand. My fiance really enjoyed it too. I plan on making it for Thanksgiving. Thanks for the recipe!”

  • “It wasn’t the worst recipe I’ve ever tried, but I won’t me using it again. I found it a bit bland. I tried it twice. The second time I tried adding extra cheese, but it was still lacking. Perhaps a combination of cheeses would have been an improvement.”

  • “Easy tasty Mac & Cheese,I cut the recipe in half with no problem.Half way through the baking I gave the caserole a stir to evenly distribute the cheese (I don’t think I devided the cheese evenly when I layered it) and I removed the lid for the last 15 minutes. Thanks Kat1 for posting”

  • “This was the best recipe I’ve tried.Everyone LOVES it.Thanks.”

  • “Very easy to make.Glad I doubled the recipe & added a little velveeta cheese to the cheddar.Also this gets nice and golden on top even without paprika. I hate to admit this but we are having it twice in one week!”

  • “This was so easy to prepare and tasted so good!I made this to go with Recipe #105816.It was a great dinner, and I look forward to making it again! :)”
