  • 2 c. uncooked 4 c. cooked macaroni
  • 1 c. heavy cream
  • 1 c. milk
  • 4-6 c. shredded cheese
  • 1-2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. pepper
  • 2 eggs lightly scrambled


  1. Preheat oven to 350. Boil macaroni noodles according to package directions. Rinse; set aside until cooled.
  2. In a large bowl mix together all ingredients until well combined. Spoon in to 9x13 baking dish.
  3. Bake for 30-45 minutes until brown and bubbly. The longer the better, when the cheese gets a little crusty it's perfect!

Recipe Notes

[My 2 Cents]
This may sound strange, but the size of your cheese shreds will affect the consistency you end up with for your mac and cheese. Hear me out. If you use a cheese grater or a food processor with the grating attachment and a hunk of cheese you will get large shreds. That is what my preference is for this recipe. You can however use finely shredded, but it will give you a much creamier consistency. Both are fantastic, but just a heads up depending on what your end goal is!
Not many things taste great as leftovers. This on the other hand tastes AWESOME as leftovers. My recommendation is to re-heat it in the oven rather than the microwave (if you've got time). You'll thank me later!
