The Lady's Cheesy Mac

Recently I got my first Paula Deen cookbook and have been very excited to try one of her recipes! She is just so cute and always makes dishes that look so delicious!
I chose The Lady's Cheesy Mac as the first recipe from Paula Deen's Kitchen Classics cookbook to try.

Serves 6
4 cups elbow macaroni, drained (about 2 cups uncooked)
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
3 eggs beaten
1/2 cup sour cream
4 Tbsp butter, cut up
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup milk , or equivalent in evaporated milk (I used regular milk)

Preheat oven to 350. After macaroni has been boiled and drained add cheese while macaroni is still hot. Combine remaining ingredients and add to macaroni mixture. Pour into a casserole dish and bake 30-45 minutes. Top with additional cheese if desired.

This made a TON of mac & cheese, and I would add a bit more salt and some black pepper next time, our guests liked it and I would definitely make it again :)
