Baked Mac and Chs
INGREDIENTS
  • 1 Tbsp Vegetable Oil
  • 1lb Elbow Macaroni
  • 8 Tbsp (1 stick) plus 1 Tbsp Butter
  • 1/2 Cup (2 ounces) Shredded Muenster Cheese
  • 1 Cup (4 ounces) Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • 1/2 Cup (2 ounces) Shredded Monterrey Jack
  • 2 Cups Half-And-Half
  • 1 Cup (8 ounces) Velveeta , cut into small cubes
  • 2 Large Eggs , lightly beaten
  • 1/8 tsp Seasoned Salt

DIRECTIONS
  1. 1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly butter a deep 2 1/2-quart casserole.
  2. 2. Bring the large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the oil, then the elbow macaroni, and cook until the macaroni is just tender, about 7 minutes. Do not overcook. Drain well. Return to the cooking pot.
  3. 3. In a small saucepan, melt eight tablespoons of the butter. Stir into the macaroni. In a large bowl, mix the Muenster, sharp Cheddar, and Monterrey Jack cheeses. To the macaroni, add the half-and-half, 1 1/2 cups of the shredded cheese, the cubed Velveeta, and the eggs. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to the buttered casserole. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup of shredded cheese and dot with the remaining one tablespoon of butter.
  4. 4. Bake until it's bubbling around the edges, about 35 minutes. Serve hot.
