Paula does it again!

Amid a flurry of butter, heavy cream, and mayonnaise, Paula Deen and her recipes continue to consistently impress me. Last night I made "The Lady's Cheesy Mac" for dinner. This will definitely replace my usual Mac 'n Cheese recipe. I didn't make any changes except for using small shells instead of elbow macaroni (since that is what I had in the house). All I can say is this is among her "Best Dishes" ;-)

The Lady's Cheesy Mac
(from foodnetwork.com)

4 cups cooked elbow macaroni, drained
2 cups grated Cheddar
3 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup sour cream
4 tablespoons butter, cut into pieces
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Once you have the macaroni cooked and drained, place in a large bowl and while still hot and add the cheddar.

In a separate bowl, combine the remaining ingredients and add to the macaroni mixture. Pour macaroni mixture into a casserole dish and bake for 30 to 45 minutes. Top with additional cheese if desired.

Hope I can try this. Have seen a little different one in Arabic cuisine!

I only recently found Paula's recipes, and they are so good!
The first one I tried was the fudge with the velveeta, and I had my doubts but it was yummy.
My kids love mac'n'cheese so you know even though it's "Lady's Night" I will make it for them.
