Aunt Louise Dowdle's Baked Macaroni & Cheese

My aunt Louise was a wonderful cook. Her son shared this recipe, circa 1937, with me years and years ago. It is my go-to recipe when I want that cheesy, baked comfort food!


  • 1 large box Elbow Macaroni (medium sized pasta)

  • 4 cups Milk

  • 4 Eggs, lightly beaten

  • Salt & Pepper, to taste

  • Butter

  • 1 large block Mild Cheddar, grated

  1. Preheat oven to 350º.

  2. Spray, or lightly butter, 9" baking dish/casserole.

  3. Cook macaroni until al dente. In a separate bowl, beat eggs until smooth. Stir in milk, salt, and pepper.

  4. In prepared baking dish, add a layer of cheese, then a layer of macaroni. Continue layering until dish is almost filled. Pour over egg/milk mixture. Add several "pinches" of butter on top. Cover with aluminum foil and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 45 minutes or until lightly browned and "set". When done, casserole will be firm to touch and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

  5. Add a heading for each step of your recipe. Headings pop out to your readers and keep them scrolling down the page. Break the process down into short, clear steps.
