Mac And Cheese Beef Pie

 

Just like what Grandma used to make! If the other reviewer had lumpy sauce they didn’t culture the eggs as instructed 1 Tablespoon at a time. I have been looking for a Mac n Cheese recipe like my Grandmother made and this is as close as I remember.

Cheesy and baked until golden, this hearty side dish is was a weekend dinner staple at my house all through my childhood. My mom always made our macaroni pie a bit sweeter than most people do. She also left out a lot of the traditional seasonings (onions, herbs, mustard etc.), probably because I was such a picky eater. After making it that way for so many years for me, and then for my brother, this sweet version eventually became our preferred recipe.

Regardless of how you flavour your macaroni pie, it will always be delicious with a saucy main course. We enjoy eating it with stewed or barbecued chicken, but I’ve heard that some people serve it with fish. I personally love eating it with stewed chicken, because I can use the pie to mop up all of that delicious sauce.

This was fantastic! I used the dish it called for, but in doing so, was unable to make all of the layers! I topped with just a little bit of bread crumbs and it was amazing, even microwaved the second time! I think next time I will use an 8 inch square pan instead! Oh, and just a little heads up, even on heat setting three, it took a little while for it to start to thicken up, but hang in there, it’s totally worth it!!

 

INGREDIENTS:

3 cups Cheddar cheese, grated
2 1/4 cups milk
1 cup cooked beef, cubed
1 cup elbow macaroni, uncooked
1/2 cup original Bisquick mix
2 eggs
1/4 teaspoon salt
Fresh parsley, chopped, to garnish (optional)

PREPARATION:

Preheat oven to 400°F and lightly grease a 10-inch deep-dish pie plate. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine 2 cups of the cheese, the beef, and macaroni and mix together. Spread in pie plate.
In a blender, blend together milk and eggs until smooth. Add bisquick mix and salt and, again, blend until smooth. Pour over mixture in pie plate.
Bake until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean, 35-40 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and bake until cheese melts, just 1-2 minutes more. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Sprinkle with parsley, if using. Enjoy!
