Ronald Reagan's Mac N Cheese

This is literally my favorite dish of all time as I'm a huge fan of anything with cheese. My aunt made it for us growing up and has become a staple at family occasions.  It is from the Congressional Cookbook back when her Father In Law was in office and Nancy Reagan submitted it as one of the President's favorite dishes. If you are interested in purchasing, it can also be found in the White House Family Cookbook.

1/2 lb macaroni
1 teaspoon butter, melted
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 tablespoon hot water
1 cup milk
3 cups sharp cheddar cheese, grated


Boil macaroni and drain thoroughly. Stir in butter and egg.

Mix salt and mustard with 1 tablespoon hot water. Add to milk. Add the cheese, leaving enough to sprinkle on top. Pour into buttered 9x9 dish, add milk, sprinkle with cheese.

Bake at 350F for about 45 minutes or until custard is set and top is crusty.
