Are you making this? 
1 tablespoon Vegetable oil
1 pound elbow macaroni
9 tablespoons Butter
1/2 cup Muenster cheese; Shredded
1/2 cup mild Cheddar; Shredded
1/2 cup sharp Cheddar; Shredded
1/2 cup Monterey Jack; Shredded
2 cups Half-and-half
1 cup Velveeta; cut into small cubes
2 large Eggs; lightly beaten
1/4 teaspoon Seasoned salt
1/8 teaspoon Black Pepper; freshly ground

Original recipe makes 6



1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly butter a deep 2 and 1/2 quart casserole.

2. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the oil, then the elbow macaroni, and cook until the macaroni is just tender, about 7 minutes. Do not overcook. Drain well. Return to the cooking pot.

3. In a small saucepan, melt 8 tablespoons of the butter. Stir into the macaroni. In a large bowl, mix the Muenster, mild and sharp Cheddar, and Monterey Jack cheeses. To the macaroni, add the half-and-half, 1 and 1/2 cups of the shredded cheese, the cubed Velveeta, and the eggs. Season with the salt and pepper.

4. Transfer to the buttered casserole. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese and dot with the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter.

5. Bake until it's bubbling around the edges, about 35 minutes. Serve hot. Makes 4 to 6 servings.

OPTIONAL: For extra special occasions, you can substitute milk for the half-and-half and add an extra stick of butter. You can also add breadcrumbs to the 1 tablespoon of butter in step 4 and sprinkle that on the top. Excellent as either a side or main dish.
