Southern baked macaroni and cheese are filled with all different types of cheeses, and that’s what makes this recipe a top winning southern side dish by SimplyFoodByTy on YouTube. I know a lot of people do not like baked mac and cheese because they rather have it creamy and cheesy. However, baked mac and cheese is not for everyone, but I love any kind of macaroni and cheese. This is a great side dish for the holidays or for any southern meals. I’ve always alternated the recipes of mac n cheese I would make for Thanksgiving, and see what works best. So, I am excited to make this because it’s going to be so many layers of cheese.
First, start off by cooking the elbow macaroni and cheese until al dente, and drain. Transfer to a baking dish and add a stick of butter to coat the noodles. Set aside, and work on the cheese sauce. In a pot, add a stick of butter, and all-purpose flour. Stir everything together, and add the liquids. Continue to watch SimplyFoodByTy tutorial on YouTube for full instructions and details.
Next, before adding the cheese sauce to the macaroni noodles, add the 3 large eggs to the noodles and mix. Add the cheese sauce and smooth everything evenly. Sprinkle cheddar cheese and slices of butter on top. Bake at 350F for 35-40 minutes.
This can be a lot to make because you would need to buy many different kinds of cheese, but I think it’s worth it if you want to be really cheesy.
