Old Fashioned Macaroni and Cheese


This recipe is an old one. It’s a unique way of making macaroni and cheese because it contains eggs and isn’t made with a roux or cream sauce. The recipe is extremely easy to make and is so delicious. I used Cabot Sharp Cheddar for this recipe and boy was I impressed by the superb quality and taste. It took this recipe to a new level and gave it an even better taste. I highly recommend using it.
