Prep Time:

30 minutes




12 servings


  1. Using the food processor with the shredder and grate the cheeses and combine in a bowl. Set the shredded cheese aside.
  2. Boil the macaroni. Don’t cook it completely. It should just be a little “under-cooked” or just tender enough to stick with a fork.  Drain the pasta in the colander. Pour the pasta in a large bowl and add the butter.  Stir the pasta until the butter has melted and completely coats the macaroni.
  3. In a separate medium size bowl, whisk the eggs. Then add the milk, salt, and pepper in the bowl. Whisk for a few seconds.
  4. Stir the egg-milk mixture into the pasta. Stir two-thirds of the cheeses into the pasta. Stir the cheese evenly throughout the pasta.
  5. Pour the macaroni mixture into a greased casserole dish.
  6. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top of the macaroni.
  7. Cover the dish with foil and bake until the macaroni “set-up” or is solid in the center and the milk/cream/eggs mixture is cooked. Remove the foil and serve.


  • Incorporate other types of hard cheeses for a variation on flavor
  • Incorporate vegetables like onions, celery, and mushrooms, or try different types spices.
