The Mac & Cheese that makes you go, Hmm ...
2 cups dry macaroni
2 teaspoons salt
1 can (12 oz.) evaporated milk
2 large eggs, beaten
3 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook the pasta in boiling water with the
two teaspoons salt for 6 to 8 minutes. Drain and set aside.

In a large bowl, beat the eggs and whisk in the evaporated milk until well
blended. Add 2 cups of shredded cheddar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, melted
butter, and the cooked pasta.

Pour the mixture into a greased 9 x 13 baking dish. Spread the remaining
cup of cheddar.

Bake for approximately 40 minutes or until the custard has set and the
cheese on top turns golden brown.
Wait!
This, too, has variations!
