Looking for a mac and cheese recipe cooked on the stove and that is easy to make.

My mom always just cooked macaroni on the stove and then melted Velveeta and mixed the two. Still my favorite. (10/17/2007)
Stovetop Macaroni and Cheese
2 large eggs
1 (12 ounce) can evaporated milk
1/4 tsp. hot red pepper sauce
2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
1 tsp. dry mustard, dissolved in 1 tsp. water
8 oz. elbow macaroni
4 Tablespoons melted butter
12 ounces sharp cheddar, American, or Monterey Jack cheese, grated, about 3 cups.
Mix eggs, 1 cup evaporated milk, pepper sauce, 1/2 tsp. salt, pepper, and mustard mixture in small bowl; set aside.
Meanwhile, bring 2 quarts water to a boil in large saucepan or Dutch oven. Add remaining 1-1/2 tsp. salt and macaroni; cook until almost tender, but still a little firm to the bite. Drain and return to pan over low heat. Add butter; toss to melt.
Pour egg mixture over buttered noodles along with 3/4 of the cheese; Stir until thoroughly combined and the cheese starts to melt. Gradually add remaining milk and cheese, stirring constantly, until mixture is hot and creamy, about 5 minutes. Serve immediately, topped with toasted bread crumbs. (10/17/2007)
After I boil the macaroni noodles, I add either Velveeta/or slices of American cheese. As it melts, I add a small amount of milk and maybe a teaspoon of butter. mmmmmm good! (10/17/2007)
