It’s expected, almost demanded, from our family for Omi to bring her famous Mac & Cheese to a family function. It’s so decadent, and she just has the magic touch with it! You low carb-ers, clean eaters may not love this the way we do, so you will just have to take our word for it! Fair warning, once you bring this to a get together, you will be asked to bring it forever!
You will need:
1 16 oz elbow macaroni
1 stick of butter
1 can cheddar cheese soup
1 package shredded cheddar cheese or a cheddar cheese blend ( Omi likes the blend)
1 5 oz can of evaporated milk
1 beaten egg
2 cups half & half
Salt and pepper to taste
Boil pasta in salted water until al-dente. Drain and add to large mixing bowl. Salt and pepper to taste. Add butter, stir until melted. Stir in 1/2 of the shredded cheese, mix well then add egg. Next stir in evaporated milk. Whisk soup with half & half until smooth, stir into pasta.
Pour into casserole dish or crock pot. Top with remaining cheddar cheese, garnish with paprika.
If using casserole dish, bake at 350 for 45-60 minutes.
If using crock pot, cook on low for 2.5-3 hours.
