-Frankie Apistolas of Nimrod Hall, Virginia

3 C uncooked macaroni noodles
butter or margarine, melted
shredded mild cheddar cheese
about 4 C milk (not skim)
2 eggs, beaten
salt and pepper to taste

-Cook noodles according to package instructions and drain.
-Grease 9x12 pan that has high sides (such as a Pyrex pan)
-Spread half of the macaroni noodles on the bottom of the pan.
-Dust the macaroni with flour so the top is lightly covered.
-Dribble melted butter over the flour and sprinkle with salt and pepper
-Add a layer of shredded cheese
-Pile the rest of the macaroni noodles on top of the cheese.
-Add salt and pepper to taste
-Top well with shredded cheese.
-Using a 4 C measure, add eggs and beat, then fill with milk to 4 C.
-Pour the mixture over the top so that it comes within ½ inch of the top of the pan (almost to the top of the macaroni).
-Bake at 375* until the top is brown and it begins to bubble (about 30-40 mins)
