macaroni + cheese

12 Jan

I’m making this for dinner tonight and I just had to share it. I found it on Pinterest, which is where I’ve been finding a LOT of new recipes lately. And each one has been a HIT. I know I already have a recipe on this blog for macaroni and cheese, but you could always use more than one, right? Well, I’m a fan. And it’s my blog. So here it is. In all honesty, it’s a GREAT recipe and I was able to make it really quickly. Which is a plus in my crazy insane life. So give it a whirl. I steam some broccoli and actually mix the two together.

Wow I cant wait to have this for dinner to tonight!

Ingredients

– 8oz macaroni, or any smallish tube shaped pasta
– 1 tablespoon butter
– 6 oz evaporated milk
– 6 oz freshly grated cheddar cheese
– 1 egg, beaten
– 1 teaspoon dry mustard powder
– 1/4 teaspoon red pepper
– Hot sauce, to taste
– Salt and pepper

Directions

1. Boil the pasta according to package directions, but reduce the cooking time by one minute.  Drain and pour back into the cooking pot.

2. Over medium-low heat, add the butter and stir until melted.

3. Mix the egg, milk, and spices and pour over the pasta.  Stir until it begins to thicken, about three to five minutes.

4. Remove the pan from the heat then add the cheese in four installments, making sure the first is melted completely before adding the next.

5. Serve immediately.

Mmmmmmmm…….
