4 cups macaroni, dry
1-1/2 lbs sharp cheddar
1/8 tsp cayenne
1 quart buttermilk
8 eggs
1 tsp salt

Cook macaroni til not quite done. Grate cheese. Mix eggs, cayenne, salt & buttermilk well. Layer mac and cheese in a lasagna pan (9” x 12” or 13”). Pour milk mixture over. Layer with a bit of cheese on top for a brown crunchy texture. Bake at 375º for 45 – 60 minutes, til firm & browned on top.

I still don't quite understand why this makes it past my "don't like cheddar" reaction, but dang is it tasty.

Probably because it's not uniformly cheesy. I've seen mustard in other mac & cheese recipes and it serves the same purpose -- provide some kind of a sharp foil for the cheese taste.

Good point...

I use capers to help with that. I also include monterey jack cheese.

I still have never made homemade mac & cheese.

Raised on Kraft and I have a gag reflex reaction to any prepared mac & cheese from cafeterias.

Me, too, but I swear this recipe is pure crack.

I still remember us making this in the basement of Mudge.

Not exactly a gourmet kitchen. Good thing the recipe is pretty simple. And yeah, yum. Good company and good food.
