Best mac & cheese ever!

Trust me, you will want to make this for Thanksgiving this year (and every year from here on out). It's a family recipe and favorite of anyone I make it for. It is TO DIE FOR. You can thank me later.

1 8 oz box of macaroni (cooked al dente)
1 tall can (14 or 15 oz) evaporated milk
1 1/2 C milk
1 tsp. salt
garlic pepper (to taste)
1 1/2 tsp. dried mustard
2 C sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1 C medium cheddar cheese, grated
1/4 C butter
2 eggs

Cook the macaroni until it is almost done, drain and put back in pot. Add 1/2 stick of butter in. Mix until all noodles are coated. Mix all of the other ingredients together in a separate bowl -- add the mix to the buttered noodles. Pour all of this into a lightly greased crock pot or casserole dish. 

Cook in the crock pot on low for 4-5 hrs. OR heat the oven to 350 degrees for ~45 min. Cook until it's not loose but more "compact", so it will be easy to spoon out. 

{Let me know if you try it!}

This looks so sinfully good. I've never made Mac & Cheese (mostly because of the dreadful caloric content) but there's a first for everything, I guess. I didn't know mustard was an ingredient but I imagine it would give it a hint of complexity (you know, more than the kid's staple snack feel). Thanks for sharing!
