Macaroni and Cheese

This easy recipe is based on a Paula Deen one. You can make it in a crock pot or you can cook it in the oven. My favorite mac and cheese recipe is Pioneer Woman's ( http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2009/04/macaroni-cheese/) but it requires you stand over the stove for awhile and is a lot of work. This one I am posting today is easier, but it still has that homemade taste. It is rare that I make something that everyone in the house really likes. This is one of those recipes. To make this taste best:  shred your own cheese, use real butter and use whole milk.

Macaroni and Cheese
2 cups macaroni
2 1/2 c. shredded cheddar 
1/4 c. butter
3 eggs
1 can cheddar soup
1/2 c. sour cream
1 c. milk
1/2 t. dry mustard
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. pepper
Cook the macaroni for 7 minutes in boiling water. Drain. Melt butter and cheese in the microwave in a mixing bowl (or if your microwave is not that big, transfer to a mixing bowl after melted). Whisk in cheddar soup and sour cream until incorporated. Whisk in the 3 eggs, milk and seasoning. Add in the macaroni and stir until it is covered with cheesy sauce. At this point either put it in a crock pot (sprayed with Pam) and cook on low for 3 hours, or put it in a 9 x 13 pan (sprayed with Pam) and bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes.
