  • Cook macaroni. Cut cheddar into slices. After you cook the macaroni, drain it. Add the cheddar cheese soup, 1/4 - 1/3 cup evaporated milk and the salt and pepper. Mix egg, Worcestershire sauce, and 1/4 - 1/3 cup milk; set aside. Layer macaroni, egg/milk/Worcestershire sauce mixture, cheese slices, and shredded cheese in a baking dish that has been sprayed with Pam. Spoon 1/4 cup evaporated milk over each layer. Repeat two more times. Sprinkle Paprika on the top. Bake at 400 for 20 min.
  • You can either put this into a large dish or make two smaller dishes and freeze one to cook later. I divided mine. The first half I put in a round 1½ qt white Corning Ware dish. It was full to the top. The second half, I froze in a foil pan to bake another day.

Notes

Everyone can't seem to get enough of Aunt Mae's Mac and Cheese. If there is a family outing or we go to Aunt Mae's for dinner, we can always count on mac and cheese (unless she has made her famous spaghetti!). If there is a church dinner, then everyone says, "Mae, you can bring the macaroni and cheese." If there is a potluck supper, you are going to find Aunt Mae's Mac and Cheese there. If food is prepared for the family who has a loved one who is sick or has passed away, Aunt Mae will take them macaroni and cheese. I don't think I can ever remember not seeing Aunt Mae carrying in 1-2 dishes of her macaroni and cheese for a food occasion.
