Baked Macaroni and Cheese

My mother used to make the best baked macaroni and cheese. I remember she used saltine cracker crumbs along with the macaroni, cheese, and milk. I don't know if she used an egg. Does anyone have the recipe?

Baked Macaroni and Cheese

  • 1.Cook Macaroni in boiling water - drain
  • 2.baking dish - butter/grease/or Pam dish
  • 3.put a layer of macaroni /slim inch
  • 4.put a layer of sharp cheddar cheese
  • 5.repeat steps 3&4 until dish is nearly full (inch or
    so from top) - end with a layer of cheese on top
  • 6.add milk until you can just begin to see it at
    edge of the dish - too much makes it sloppy
  • with butter - amount depends on size of dish
  • 8.sprinkle with finely crushed - saltines or ritz
    crackers - bread crumbs or wheat germ

Bake at 375 - half hour to an hour -depending on
your oven - until lightly browned

Note: I like to sprinkle in a little garlic and/ red pepper flakes in the middle layer.

Mac & Cheese is my favorite hot dish - enjoy! (11/01/2007)
