    Paradise Cafe Mac and Cheese

    (As seen on Oprah)
    2 ounces butter, melted, plus extra for preparing the baking pan
    1 quart evaporated milk
    4 eggs, beaten
    2 tablespoons paprika
    2 teaspoons salt
    teaspoon white pepper
    1 lbs. shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese (preferably Vermont cheddar)
    1 lb. dry elbow macaroni, cooked al dente
    Crumb Topping:
    cup dry sourdough breadcrumbs (or other firm-textured white bread)
    2 tablespoons butter, melted
    cup grated Parmesan cheese
    2 grindings of black pepper
    Preheat the oven to 350 F. Butter a 13"x 9" pan. Set aside.
    In a large bowl, whisk together 2 ounces melted butter, evaporated milk, eggs, paprika, salt and white pepper. Set aside.
    Make the crumb topping by mixing all the ingredients together in a small bowl. Set aside.
    Layer one third of the cooked elbow macaroni in the prepared pan. Cover with one third of the shredded cheddar. Repeat the layers twice more, ending with an even layer of cheese on top.
    Pour the evaporated milk mixture evenly over the entire casserole. With gloved hand, press lightly on the top so the ingredients are moistened by the milk.
    Bake for 30 minutes, covered with foil. Remove the foil and sprinkle the crumb topping evenly over the top. Continue baking for another 15-20 minutes.
    Remove from oven and allow to sit at room temperature 5 minutes before serving
    Yield: Serves 12 as a side for lunch or dinner

    Ok when I was at work, Bruce wanted to make Mac and Cheese, so I emailed him with what I remembered and he made it. I've asked him to post that recipe here too. It's not quite the same, but it turned out really really good too.
