Southern Baked Macaroni and Cheese

Every since I was a little girl macaroni and cheese was my favorite food. Now that I'm older my favorites have changed, but I still love macaroni and cheese.

The best time to have it was at Christmas or Thanksgiving at my grandma's house because she would make an amazing macaroni pie.

Southern ladies refer to this style of macaroni and cheese as a pie, but you could call it a casserole and it will still taste the same... but it's not real Southern macaroni and cheese until you can cut it out of a dish like a piece of cake or pie (hence the name).

That Kraft macaroni and cheese in a box has nothing on this variation.

I finally think I have come up with a recipe that closely fits and would make grandma proud.

Baked macaroni and cheese is great to have with roasted chicken, corn of the cob or even pinto beans. Break out the dutch oven and enjoy!

Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 45 min
Ready in: 55 min
Yields: Varies depending on appetite.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups macaroni, uncooked
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons flour
  • 4 Tablespoons/ 2/3 stick butter, cut into small slices
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3-4 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • Pepper, to taste

Preparation Instructions

  1. Cook pasta until tender, drain.
  2. Mix flour, salt, and pepper together, set aside.
  3. Spray oven safe bowl or dish (I use a dutch oven) with cooking spray. Place half of macaroni inside.
  4. Sprinkle half of the flour mixture over the top of the macaroni noodles and top with half of the butter slices. Add one beaten egg.
  5. Sprinkle 1 1/2 cups cheese over flour and egg.
  6. Repeat step 4 and 5 then pour milk over the top.
  7. Cover with foil and bake at 350 for 35 minutes.
  8. Remove foil, bake an additional ten minutes. (Do this or you WILL get doughy bits all through the macaroni that is not yummy at all) Serve hot.

Taste of the South

A good sign that your macaroni and cheese was a success is empty plates, and requests for seconds.

While a lot of Southerners will make this for Christmas and Thanksgiving, it can be made any time of the year. Southern baked macaroni and cheese is a staple in my household and is requested often.

The best tip if you plan to make it on a regular basis is stock up on cheese coupons (Kraft Old Cheddar Cheese - Sharp is great with this recipe), or buy lots when they go on sale since shredded bags of cheese tend to keep well in the refrigerator.

Your kids will thank you for making this on a cold winter day. Toss in some ham to make a special main dish for a kid-friendly dinner that isn't processed from a box - which is not only tasty, but better for you!

      @ peachpurple: I can't say I've heard of Kenny Roaster but I hope that this lives up to your expectations or more than what you have had with their macaroni and cheese. Thank you!
