the perfect mac & cheese

macaroni & cheese is easily one of my favorite side dishes.  the sad thing is, not everyone does it right.  this recipe is one that i think is damn near perfect.  flavor it up however you want, but stick to the basics when it comes to the key ingredients.


1 box of macaroni

2 sticks of butter

2 eggs

seasoned salt, pepper, sugar to taste

extra sharp cheddar (shredded)

mild cheddar (cubed)

1 quart half & half (exact amount varies based on the dish being used.)
