3:40 -- Meatless Friday

I love food. Foody food food. And I love meat! I was a vegetarian for several years because of my ongoing stomach issues but I never felt that much better. So meat is once again my friend. Being that it's Lent, I try to go meatless on Fridays. (Look at me, sticking with blog posts AND giving up meat on Fridays. Does this still get me out of going to church?)
So today, I'd like to share my absolute all-time favorite meatless recipe. Macaroni and cheese, courtesy of Ms. "Howdy Y'all" herself, Paula Deen. I gurarantee that once you try this, you'll never eat Kraft again. And the kiddies will love it for sure. Enjoy!


Ingredients

  • 4 cups cooked elbow macaroni, drained (3 cups uncooked)
  • 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

Directions

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
