Macaroni & Cheese Casserole

A Taste of Louisiana with Chef John Folse: Louisiana Cooking With a Change of Heart

Something Old:

Prep Time:
1 ½ Hours Serves: 8

INGREDIENTS:
16 ounces spaghetti
8 ounces grated cheddar cheese
4 slices American cheese
1 (22-ounce) can evaporated milk
22 ounces whole milk
3 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp. salt
½ stick butter



METHOD:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl, combine evaporated milk, milk, eggs, sugar and salt. Using a wire whisk, whip until all ingredients are well-blended. Slice ½ stick of butter into pats and add to the mixture. Fold in the cheddar cheese and blend well. Cook spaghetti according to package directions. When tender, drain and add to mixture. The hot spaghetti will melt the butter and cheese, creating a wonderful sauce. Pour spaghetti into 5-quart casserole dish and top with American cheese. Cut the remaining butter into pats and place on top of the cheese. Using your hands, press the spaghetti down tightly into the casserole dish allowing milk to cover the spaghetti. Bake for 45 minutes.
