  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 4 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded

  1. Begin by bringing a large pot of water to a boil. Add a pinch of salt and the dry elbow macaroni, cooking until it reaches the desired al dente texture.
  2. Drain the cooked macaroni and return it to the pot. Add the salted butter, stirring until the butter is completely melted. Set the pot aside.
  3. In a large bowl, thoroughly mix together the evaporated milk, milk of choice, eggs, and garlic salt until the ingredients are fully combined.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the shredded cheddar and mozzarella cheeses.
  5. Preheat your oven to 375°F and lightly spray a 9×13 inch baking pan with cooking spray.
  6. Start layering the dish by placing 1/3 of the macaroni at the bottom of the prepared baking pan, followed by 1/3 of the cheese mixture.
  7. Repeat the layering process with the remaining macaroni and cheese mixture.
  8. Pour the prepared milk mixture evenly over the layers, ensuring a creamy and uniform coating. Sprinkle the paprika evenly on top for an added burst of flavor and color.
  9. Bake the assembled dish in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the cheese is bubbly and melted.
