Stove Top Mac-n-Cheese

I gave this a try because it had great reviews and was a quick mac-n-cheese recipe. It had a wonderful cheddar taste and was very creamy, BUT, I still like mine better. Sorry Alton. Also, it did not reheat very well. The texture was not the same and the flavor seemed to be different. I may try it again, but I think I will try another version first.

From Alton Brown


1/2 pound elbow macaroni
4 tablespoons butter
2 eggs
6 ounces evaporated milk
1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
1 teaspoon kosher salt
fresh black pepper
3/4 teaspoon dry mustard
10 ounces sharp cheddar, shredded


In a large pot of boiling, salted water cook the pasta to al dente and drain. Return to the pot and melt in the butter. Toss to coat.

Whisk together the eggs, milk, hot sauce, salt, pepper, and mustard. Stir into the pasta and add the cheese. Over low heat continue to stir for 3 minutes or until creamy.
