Macaroni and Cheese

This is a recipe I have been making for years. My family LOVES homemade macaroni and cheese. I usually serve this with some steamed broccoli and homemade applesauce.                                            

Hope you enjoy and Happy cooking!


  • 4 cups cooked elbow or small shell macaroni, drained
  • 3 cups grated Cheddar
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 6 tablespoons butter, cut into pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup fresh breadcrumbs



Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Once you have the macaroni cooked and drained, place in a large bowl and while still hot and add 2 cups of the  cheddar cheese. In a separate bowl, combine eggs, sour cream, 4 TBS. butter, salt and milk.  Add to the macaroni mixture. Pour macaroni mixture into a casserole dish and bake for 30 to 45 minutes. In a small skillet melt butter and add fresh breadcrumbs. Stir constantly until crumbs are golden brown and fragrant.  Add additional cheese and top with breadcrumbs and  return to oven for 10 minutes.
