- Butter for greasing the dish
- 1 pound macaroni
- 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
- 8 Tbsp butter
- 1/2 cup Muenster cheese, shredded
- 1/2 cup mild cheddar cheese, shredded
- 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
- 1/2 cup Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
- 2 cups half-and-half
- 8 ounces Velveeta cheese, cubed
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- 1/4 tsp seasoning salt
- 1/8 tsp freshly ground pepper
- 1 Tbsp butter
1 Heat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 2 1/2-quart baking dish with butter. Set aside.
2 In a large pot, add water and bring to a boil over high heat. Add macaroni and oil. Cook according to macaroni package instructions. Drain over a colander and return macaroni to pot.
3 In a small saucepan, melt 8 tablespoons butter. Pour the melted butter over the macaroni and stir to combine.
4 In a large bowl, combine shredded cheeses. Add 1 1/2 cups of the shredded cheeses, half-and-half, cubed cheese, and eggs to the macaroni. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
5 Transfer the macaroni to the prepared baking dish; top with remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Dot with remaining 1 tablespoon butter. Bake until edges are golden brown and bubbly, about 30 to 35 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool for 15 minutes before serving.
