    Mac and Cheese



    12oz elbow macaroni (3/4 of the box)
    2 large eggs
    3 TBS of melted butter
    1.5 cups of milk
    16 oz of grated cheddar (I use sharp and buy an 8 oz bag to go in and an 8 oz bag to top off the dish)
    1 tsp salt
    1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
    8 slices Muenster cheese
    little bit of bread crumbs

    1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Cook the Mac in salted boiling water. Drain Mac well and transfer to large mixing bowl.

    2. Mix Mac with all the remaining ingredients except bread crumbs and Muenster cheese. Then transfer to the mixture to an 11 inch oval baking dish in layers. Add a couple of spoons, then place four slices of muenster cheese, then a couple of more spoons, then four more slices of muenster, then add the rest. I use more cheddar on top and then sprinkle top lightly with bread crumbs.

    3. Bake until top crust is golden brown, about 25 minutes – cover for 20 minutes, then uncover for the last 5 minutes.
