Baked Mac n Cheese

So, for the last supper (prior to wisdom teeth being pulled), I had Tyler's Cheeseburger for lunch and Grilled Steak with Mac n Cheese for dinner. Great last meal, since my diet only includes Ensure and Soup for the next two weeks. And don't get me wrong, I love soup- but not during the summer heat.

Anyway, Mac n Cheese- an all time, American favorite.

12 ounce package of Macaroni (get the larger, thicker ones)
1 egg
1 cup cream
2 tbls butter
2 cups shredded cheddar
1 cup smoked Gouda, shredded
some Parmesan cheese
Salt and Pepper to taste
large handful of Bacon Crumbs
Italian Bread crumbles to top

1. Preheat oven to 350*, lightly grease 2qt baking dish
2. Boil a large pot of water, add macaroni for 5 mins (until half cooked)
3. Whisk egg and cream together in a bowl. Add butter, bacon and cheese. Stir well.
4. Place lightly cooked macaroni in the baking dish. Pour the egg, cheese mixture over the macaroni, sprinkle with salt and pepper, stir well. Press the mixture evenly around the dish. Top with thin layer of Italian Bread Crumbs
5. Bake uncovered for 30 mins.
6. Remove Pan and add a very thin layer of Parmesan cheese. Pop in Broiler for a couple of minutes to crisp the top.

I am interested in tweaking this up here and there and sharing some re-mixes! =)

    I added an "American" tag because we're not on here just for foreign food!
