This is one of my favorite comfort foods. It’s rally quite easy to make. Not sure why people insist on using the boxed variety.
1/2 pound elbow macaroni
1 teaspoon butter
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 tablespoon hot water
3 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese, reserve 1/2 cup to sprinkle on top
1 cup milk
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Cook macaroni until al dente. Drain thoroughly.
Stir in butter and egg.
Mix salt and mustard with hot water then add to milk.
Add cheese to the cooked macaroni in a bowl.
Butter a casserole dish well, and pur the macaroni into it.
Add the milk mixture, then top with the reserved cheese.
Place in over and bake for 45 minutes or until the mixture is set and the top is crusty.
