Stove Top Mac-n-Cheese (Alton Brown)

This is hands down one of the best recipes I have ever made. It is SO easy, uses ingredients on hand and is just so delicious.

Stove Top Mac-n-Cheese (Alton Brown)

Difficulty: Easy
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Yield: 6 to 8 servings

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.
