Baked Mac and Cheese

Recently I had some minor oral surgery done due.. Long story short, nothing ever goes as planned for me and complications arose and I have to go back in three weeks. Because of this, I'm forced to eat soft foods until then.. thank god I like pastas!! I whipped up this easy recipe the other night since Mac & Cheese is one of my comfort foods I enjoy. This recipe is one of my mom's favorite things to make me too so that's also why I love it so much!!


Ingredients:

1 box small elbow noodles
1 block Cracker Barrel sharp Cheddar cheese
1 cup Milk (I use 2% but you can you any you prefer- except skim)
2 eggs
4 tsp salted butter
1/4 cup Shredded Cheddar cheese 
Handful of Bread Crumbs

Directions:

In a large bowl grate block of cheddar cheese and put to side. Cook your pasta according to package. In sauce pan on low heat; melt butter and add in milk.  Carefully, add in eggs to low heat- make sure to add slowly and continuously mix or will form scrabbled eggs!!! Remove from heat and put aside. In a casserole dish or pie dish grease bottom. Add layer of sauce mixture to cover bottom. Add layer of cooked pasta and layer of grated cheese.  Continue this pattern until reach top. Cover with extra shredded cheese and bread crumbs. Bake in oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes (depending on pan you may want to keep in more or less- but do not burn noodles on the bottom. Let cool before serving.
Enjoy!
