    Custard-Style Macaroni and Cheese

    2 cups macaroni
    3 large eggs
    1 1/2 cups milk
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon paprika
    2 pinches cayenne pepper
    2-1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese
    1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
    5 saltine crackers,
    (1/4 cup, crumbled)

    Cook the macaroni in a large pot of
    salted water as directed on the package.
    Rinse thoroughly in cold water and drain.
    Refrigerate until ready to use.

    Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Grease a
    10x6x2-inch casserole dish with butter.

    In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs,
    milk, salt, paprika, and ground red pepper.
    In the casserole dish, layer the cooked
    macaroni with the cheddar cheese, and pour
    the custard (egg mixture) over the top. Bake
    for 40-50 minutes, or until set in the center.
    In a small mixing bowl, combine the Parmesan
    cheese and crumbled crackers. Spread over
    the casserole, and broil to brown.

    *I prefer medium size macaroni for this dish,
    but you may use the smaller size if desired.

    Serves 4.

    Sent a copy of your recipe to a friend who was wanting a mac and cheese recipe and think she'll love this and I plan to make it for myself and will give a review afterwards.

    Thanks, Twinkle!!
