President Reagan's Favorite Macaroni and Cheese

Here's another attempt at homemade mac-n-cheese. Probably my last. This one turned out better than the crockpot one, but it just isn't the same as the stuff out of a box. Call me weird, but I like the stuff in the blue box. I also added some cubed ham to make it a complete meal.

1/2 lb. macaroni
1 t. butter
1 egg, beaten
1 t salt
1 t dry mustard
3 c grated cheese, sharp
1 c milk

Boil macaroni in water until tender and drain thouroughly. Stir in butter and egg. Mix mustard and salt with 1 T hot water and add to milk. Add cheese leaving enough to sprinkle on top.

Pour into buttered casserole, add milk, sprinkle with cheese.

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