Macaroni Pudding? This is an egg rich Mac and Cheese!

 It's nearly the end of January and I am committed to renewing my blog by revising Hi-Ho's ancient recipe box.

This deserves a picture of this beast, which bears a book mark barely into it - see the "Breads, cookies, cakes, pies, casseroles" on the right hand side?

That is as far as I made it through it and it is almost symbolic of this time of year, just past Hi-Ho's birthday but several weeks before the anniversary of her death. Maybe I can knock a good dent in it in the time remaining.

Sadly, this recipe was the first I pulled out and it really almost makes my stomach turn. It is credited to "Pete" which means that this recipe card came from KK, a horrible cook, but maybe this one was worth making? I bet the kids will love it because it really just sounds like baked Mac and Cheese, so why call it pudding? Perhaps because it has so many eggs.

 1 quart of milk
2 Tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon salt and pepper to taste
2 cups chopped cheese
4 eggs - slightly beaten
1 and 3/4 cup macaroni (why not call it 2?)

  1. Cook Macaroni according to directions for al dente. Drain and put into a buttered baking dish.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  3. Heat milk, butter, salt and pepper. 
  4. Add cheese and stir until melted.
  5. Remove from heat and add beaten eggs.
  6. Add milk and cheese mixture to the macaroni in baking dish. 
  7. Bake in over until firm and slightly brown.
