My Ultimate Macaroni & Cheese


WARNING: This macaroni and cheese recipe will make you want to NEVER make the boxed kind again.  I’m serious, if you make this for your family they will gobble it up and beg for more and you’ll vow never to make that kind in the box ever again.

This mac & cheese has 4 eggs in it, so if you have picky eaters that live off of mac & cheese, you can rest easy knowing this dish IS actually a protein replacement!  You can serve it as a main dish and not feel a bit guilty and your children will grin from ear to ear!

Ultimate Macaroni & Cheese

1/2 stick of butter (I use organic) cut into pieces and softened
2 1/2 cups of uncooked elbow macaroni (although other shapes would be equally delicious)
16 ounces of cheddar cheese, shredded (about 4 cups) ( I use organic)
4 ounces cream cheese, cubed (I use organic)
1 c. half and half (I use organic)
4 large eggs (I use free range/local)
1/2 cup sour cream (I use organic)

Preheat oven to 350. Butter a 13×9 baking dish.

Boil noodles according to the package directions. Drain noodles and return to pot. Add the cheddar cheese and the cream cheese to the hot macaroni and stir well. Spread into your buttered 13×9 dish.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the rest of the ingredients. Pour over the macaroni. Bake, uncovered, for 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown and bubbling. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

  1. yummmmmm. Sounds rich and creamy.

    Have you tried making it and freezing it before baking or after? I’m trying to figure out what would work with the egg. Maybe half baked would be the way to go if I want to freeze it?

    How does it reheat as leftovers?

  2. I am trying this tonight! I will let you know how it goes!

  3. THAT SOUNDS AWESOME FOR ME, BECAUSE I LOVE BAKED MACARONI AND CHEESE.I MISS IT . I DONT KNOW HOW TO MAKE IT, BUT NOW ILL COPY THE INGREDIENTS. TO MAKE ONE DAY. YUMMY

  4. Sounds awesome! I LOVE your site!!!!!!!

  5. Is the 1/2 stick of butter just to butter the dish? or do you do something different with it?

    I think I’ll try this version tonight! I used to follow you as Cents. Sawyr….and I just wanted to say Good Job on this!

  7. Hello there, what is meant by 1 c. half and half ? Im from Denmark so dont have a clue what you mean… ;)

  8. I made it one time and couldn’t get enough of it. The second time I found each bite harder and harder to eat. The egg makes it more of a casserole than the creamy macaroni we all are accustomed to. It was good, dont get me wrong, but next time I will eliminate some eggs or something to cut the spongyness out.

    When do you use the butter in this recipe? To butter the noodles before you put the cheeses in or to butter the casserole pan?? Sounds yummy! I’ve got to try this!

  10. I don’t even understand how I stopped up here, but I believed this publish used to be great. I do not recognize who you might be but certainly you are going to a well-known blogger if you happen to are not already. Cheers!

  11. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s
    both equally educative and engaging, and without a
    doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy
    that I came across this during my search for something relating to this.

  12. I like reading through an article that can make people
    think. Also, thank you for permitting me to comment!
