Mom's Baked Macaroni

It is about a year now that we have had our freezer. It was the best investment I have made. This week I did not do any cooking. So into the freezer we go. This Baked Macaroni was my mom's recipe and I have made it quite often. Each time I switch up the cheeses. This one batch was true to my mom's recipe. Just American Cheese.

The recipe
1/2 pound elbow macaroni
Grease pyrex loaf pan.

Alternate layers of
macaroni and American cheese starting with the macaroni.
3 eggs and pour over macaroni. Fill baking dish with milk to almost cover macaroni.
Top with
bread crumbs, and parsley.
Bake 350 degrees until set, usually about 45 minutes to 1 hour.

And that is it. It is perfect as a base recipe. If you suddenly find yourself with all sorts of left over cheese. True comfort food.

This sounds like a great recipe. I'm not too fond of the mac n cheese that starts with a bechamel base. I don't like that gritty taste that comes from adding the flour to a bechamel. I'd love to try this one because it doesn't start with that flour base. Sounds like it would be all nice and creamy.
