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.
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.
Now, I am not a casserole kinda gal, but when confronted with a plethora of leftover turkey from Thanksgiving, I will bow to the gods of one-dish meals. I did some research from famous chefs and their versions of tetrazzini and got a good idea of where I needed to focus. Then I raided the refrigerator. My goal was to not have to purchase anything to make this meal, yet make it extremely tasty. This is the outcome.
I love couscous and could eat it in some variation nearly every day. Not everyone in my household feels this way (I won’t mention the “he” who shall be nameless). In an effort to make couscous a little bit “tastier” to some folks, I thought this quick and easy casserole might hit the spot. This would be a great side dish to any meal or if you are going meatless eat this all by itself!
Tacos … check! Chicken … check! Together in a casserole … check, check! Three of my favorite things all wrapped up into one sensational dish. And I do mean sensational. This is one easy and really tasty casserole that I will be making again and again at my house. I hope you love it as much as we do.
