Stove Top Mac n Cheese
  • Cooking Time: 5-8
  • Servings: 4
  • Preparation Time: 5
  • 1/2 lb elbow macaroni
  • 4 tbs butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 - 6oz cans of evaporated milk
  • 1/2 tsp hot sauce (can leave out)
  • 1 tsp salt (I use kosher salt)
  • 3/4 tsp dry mustard
  • 1/2 tsp ground white pepper (black is fine also)
  • 1 lb shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  1. In a large pot of boiling, salted water cook the pasta to al dente (still slightly firm). Return to the pot and melt in the butter. Toss to coat.
  2. In a separate bowl whisk together the eggs, milk, hot sauce, salt, pepper, and mustard.
  3. Stir into the pasta and add the cheese.
  4. Over low heat continue to stir for 3-4 minutes until creamy. You can stir in some regular milk to thin it down a bit if you want if its too thick for you.
  5. Serve and enjoy
This is a great recipe for the kids also. Lets face it. Kids love the box type mac n cheese. They often cringe at the baked crusty top style that many of the homemade versions are. This is an easy to make stove top style that I make for my daughter all the time. She loves it. Try variations of different cheese such as pepper jack for a spicy version.
