Mac and Cheese the number 1 comfort food

There are a few things in life that I don't get and mac and cheese is one of them.  You cannot turn on a cooking show without someone raving about mac and cheese.  Yes I like mac and cheese but it is not the number one comfort food for me.  It is cheese and noodles, nothing fancy.  It tastes ok but it just doesn't do a thing for me.  I even went to The Lady and Sons Restaurant in Savannah, Georgia just to experience real southern mac and cheese.  I still do not get it.  I want you to tell me what is so special about mac and cheese that makes you have to have it.  Or what do you like to have in it.  Is it Bacon?  I need to know. 

Ingredients

  • 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

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.
