Homemade Macaroni & Cheese

When my friend, Meilina dropped off her kids for a playdate one day she brought along a homemade Mac and Cheese. She said, "I hope you like it. My kids like this more than the blue box one". We like it too. It's indeed better, way better. Want some?


The process:
Cook the macaroni in a big pot. In separate pan, melt the butter, cook the spam:
Add the flour:
Pour in the milk
Whisking constantly
Move them inside a baking dish, Sprinkle more cheese on the top, bake for 20 minutes

Place some on a plate then it's ready to be eaten

Macaroni & Cheese
Printable Recipe
2 cups dried macaroni
4 eggs, beaten
3 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
1/2 pound grated cheddar cheese
1/2 can (7 ounce) spam - cut into 1 centimeter square
Salt and pepper as prefer

Cook macaroni in the boiling water with dash of salt and about a tablespoon of oil until firm {about 10 minutes} then drain
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
In a small bowl, beat egg.
In a large pot, melt butter, add the spam, then sprinkle in flour. Whisk together over medium-low heat. 
Cook for about 3 minutes, whisking constantly. Don’t let it burn.
Pour in milk, and whisk until smooth. Cook for five minutes until very thick. Reduce heat to low.
Take 1/4 cup of the sauce and slowly pour it into beaten egg, whisking constantly to avoid cooking eggs. Whisk together till smooth.
Pour egg mixture into sauce, whisking constantly. Stir until smooth.
Add in cheese and stir to melt.
Sprinkle salt and pepper. Taste and add salt and pepper as prefer.
Pour in cooked macaroni and stir to combine.
Pour into a baking dish {I either use my 8x8 square or 1.5 qt round baking dish}, 
Sprinkle some extra cheese on the top
Bake for 25 minutes or until bubbly and golden on top.
