Good Ole Fashion Mac and Cheese


16 ounces of elbow macaroni
1/2 cup of evaporated milk
2 large eggs
8 ounces of sour cream
1 teaspoon of seasoned salt
1/2 teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups of Cheddar cheese, finely shredded
1/2 cup of freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon of unsalted butter


Begin by preheating your oven to a temperature of 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Using a bit of butter, lightly grease the surface of your favorite casserole dish to prevent the ingredients from sticking during baking.

Place a large pot filled with generously salted water over high heat, and bring it to a rolling boil. Add the elbow macaroni into the boiling water and let it cook for approximately 8 to 10 minutes, or until it’s al dente, meaning it should still have a bit of firmness when bitten. Once cooked, drain the pasta and rinse with cool water to stop the cooking process.

In a separate mixing bowl, combine the evaporated milk, eggs, sour cream, seasoned salt, and freshly ground black pepper. Whisk these ingredients together until they are thoroughly mixed, creating a creamy, flavorful binder for your macaroni and cheese.

Now, assemble your dish. Start with a layer of cooked macaroni at the base of your greased casserole dish. Sprinkle a layer of shredded Cheddar cheese over the pasta, then pour a portion of your prepared milk mixture evenly over the cheese. Continue this layering process until all your ingredients have been used, ensuring that your dish is packed full of creamy, cheesy goodness.

Finish off the assembly of your dish by topping it with a generous sprinkle of freshly grated Parmesan cheese. Melt the tablespoon of unsalted butter and drizzle it over the top to give your dish a beautiful golden-brown crust during baking.

Bake the casserole in your preheated oven for about 20 to 30 minutes, or until the top layer has become golden and bubbly, signaling that your dish is cooked through and ready to be enjoyed.

Enjoy this classic comfort food dish, perfect for family dinners, potluck gatherings, or just because you deserve some good, old-fashioned mac and cheese!
