1 cup macaroni - boiled
2/3 cup milk
1 or 2 eggs
1 cup grated cheese
salt, paprika
a few grains cayenne
1/4 cup bread crumbs

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Butter a casserole and add alternating layers of macaroni and grated cheese, ending with cheese on top. Combine milk, eggs, and seasonings and pour over macaroni and cheese. Top with bread crumbs and bake until done (no set time given, but at least 20 minutes or so)

One variation on the above recipe is to replace the milk with the same amount of whipping cream, which will give you a richer, firmer custard.

Unlike the kind people who've posted recipes, I'm not much of a cook; but I do know one fantastic trick:

add 1 teaspoon of any good wine (Madeira is my favorite) to one serving of macaroni. Wow!!!

The best macaroni and cheese I ever had, (believe it or not), was that served in my high school cafeteria !!
It had some kind of "crunchy stuff" on top, and was very cheesy thru and thru.
Priding myself on being a great cook, (I was a bachelor for over 40 years), I tried all kinds of things to try to reproduce that high school macaroni "with the cruch'.
The closest I ever came was with *wheat germ* !!
It looked right, but just did not have the thickness nor "crunch" I sought.
I will definitely try this recipe as I am sure this is IT!!!!
Never thought of using eggs, either, and I can see how that would make it richer and tend to hold all together.
