Anyway, while he was there, he bought a South African cookbook in the hopes that his mom could replicate some of his new favorite foods. It never happened and not long after we were married, I discovered the book and found some really great stuff inside.
This is almost straight from that cookbook. Of course, all of the measurements are metric so I had to do some converting and, over the years, I've tweaked it to fit our family's tastes better.
So, here it is:
Baked Macaroni and Cheese
|My 12 year old daughter made this.|
1 t salt
1/4 t pepper
1 t mustard
4 c milk
3/4 lbs shredded sharp cheddar
2 T butter
1 tomato cut into wedges
Preheat oven to 325. Cook the macaroni until done. Drain. Beat eggs, add seasonings and milk. Add the macaroni and the cheese and spoon into a large greased oven dish. Dot with butter. Garnish with tomato wedges. Bake for 60-90 min until middle of casserole is set.
Although I have cut this recipe in half, it still makes quite a lot. Feel free to halve it again...
