    I made this mac and cheese recipe–we all loved it. All my life I’ve dreamt of my grandmother’s mac and cheese. I could never figure out how she did it. This recipe was identical if not better. Pouring the egg/milk mixture over the top of the noodles and cheese is what gave it the flavor and consistency that I remember. Thank you.
