Lulu's favorite. Grandma Sanders makes it often. Boxed mixes are a poor imitation.
MACARONI & CHEESE
Preheat oven to 350╝F.
1/2 pound macaroni
1 teaspoon butter
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dry mustard
3 cups grated sharp American cheese
1 clove garlic, pressed
1 cup milk
Cook the macaroni in water until almost tender and drain thoroughly. Stir in butter and egg.
Mix mustard and salt with 1 tablespoon hot water and add to milk.
Stir in pressed garlic bits - the pieces must be tiny.
Add cheese, leaving out 1/2 cup to sprinkle on top. Pour into a buttered casserole. Add milk.
Sprinkle with cheese. Bake for 45 minutes or until custard has set and top is crusty.
