Ingredients

  • 354 ml evaporated milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 cups sharp cheddar cheese (shredded)
  • cups macaroni
  • 2 tbsp yellow mustard
  • 2 tbsp ketchup
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp paprika

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven at 350°F (176°C).
  • Bring water (enough to cook the macaroni to a boil in a large pot over high heat. Pour the macaroni into the pot, lower the heat to medium and cook the macaroni until al dente (about 10 minutes).
  • Drain the water from the macaroni in a strainer and run the macaroni under cold water to stop the cooking process. Place the macaroni back into the pot and add 2½ cups of the cheddar cheese to the macaroni.
  • Beat the eggs in a large mixing bowl. Add the evaporated milk, yellow mustard, ketchup, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper, and paprika to the eggs and whisk until smooth.
  • Pour the egg mixture into the pot with the macaroni and cheese and mix evenly.
  • Pour and evenly distribute the macaroni and cheese into a greased baking pan. Top the macaroni and cheese with the remaining cheese. Cover the baking pan with tin foil and place it in the middle rack of the oven.
  • Bake the macaroni pie at 350°F (176°C) for 20 minutes then remove the tin foil from the baking pan and continue to bake the macaroni for an additional 15 minutes. For a crispier crust, turn the oven to broil for the last 3 minutes of baking the macaroni pie.
  • Allow the macaroni pie to rest for at least 15 minutes before serving.
