Description

This is a traditional family recipe from my good old Southern grandma. She knew how to make the perfect “macaroni pie”. Now, I am sharing the secret with you! Enjoy and pass this on to your own family.

Ingredients

  • 2  Eggs
  • 2 cups Milk
  • 8 ounces, weight Elbow Macaroni, Cooked And Drained
  • 2 cups Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons Sugar
  • ½ sticks Butter
  • 20  Ritz Crackers, Crushed

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Lightly grease or spray the bottom of a 10×13 glass baking pan.

Beat the eggs with the milk until eggs are well-beaten. Place half of the macaroni in the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle half of the shredded cheese over the noodles. Sprinkle half the salt and pepper over the cheese. Sprinkle half the sugar over the macaroni.

Cut the butter into small squares and scatter half across the top of the macaroni. Pour half of the egg and milk mixture over the noodles.

Place remaining macaroni over top and repeat the same layering process. Top it off with crushed Ritz crackers and bake for about 30 minutes or until golden brown.

Yields about 8 hearty servings or 12 standard servings.

I would have given this 5 stars because this had excellent flavor, but we had to use a slotted spoon; It was floating in milk. I included the eggs, if this was supposed to ‘set up’; it didn’t.
