Serves 16 | Prep Time | Cook Time 35mins

Ingredients

* 2 lbs elbow macaroni
* 12 eggs
* 1 cup cubed Velveeta cheese
* 1/2 lb butter (2 sticks, melted)
* 6 cups half-and-half
* 4 cups of grated sharp cheddar cheese
* 2 cups of extra sharp white cheddar cheese
* 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
* 1 cup grated asiago cheese
* 1 cup grated gruyere cheese
* 1 cup grated monterey jack cheese
* 1 cup grated muenster cheese
* 1/8 teaspoon salt
* 1 tablespoon black pepper


1. Preheat oven to 325°.



2. Bring a large sauce pan of salted water to a boil. Add the macaroni and cook until al dente (about 10 minutes); drain and set aside to keep warm.



3. Whisk the eggs in a large bowl until frothy. Combine the Velveeta, butter, and 2 cups of the half and half in a large bowl. Add the warm macaroni and toss until the cheese is melted and the mixture is smooth. Add the remaining half and half, 3 cups of the yellow cheddar, the remaining grated cheeses and the salt and pepper, tossing until completely combined.



4. Pour the mixture into a 9x13 inch casserole or baking dish and bake for 30 minutes. Sprinkle the remaining 1 cup of yellow cheddar cheese and bake until golden brown on top, about 30 minutes more. Serve hot.

Notes

This is Delilah Winder's mac and cheese as featured on Oprah and throw down with Bobby Flay in which she came a very close second.

With the prices of cheese nowadays, this recipe would more than likely cost in excess of $50 to prepare. I hope it would be worth it.

No wonder my son is hooked on this, she has or had a stand at the Philadelphia Reading Terminal Market and he used to eat this all the time. He said it was just as good as mine, aint he sweet.
