Macaroni Pie


As a young girl my mom taught me prepare this dish, Macaroni Pie aka Macaroni and Cheese, using one method and as a young mother, I learned another easier, faster method.

So today (12th June 2009) I decided to prepare this dish and serve it with Boil Corn.

1 pack of macaroni
2 handful of shredded cheese (my preferred choice of cheese is white sharp cheddar cheese)
1/2 cup of milk
1 egg

Layered Method
Put a pot of water to boil, only add the macaroni when the water has come to a boil. When the macaroni has cooked, turn off the stove and drain out the water.

Put on your oven and allow it to hot. In a baking dish put a layer of macaroni and then a layer of grated cheese. Repeat this step until you have used up all the macaroni.

In a separate bowl, mix the egg, milk and seasoning. You could use home made seasoning or seasoning bought from your grocery. Mix all the ingredients together and pour this mixture over the layered macaroni and cheese. Add some more shredded cheese on top. For a variety, you can then add some bread crumbs.

Put the macaroni pie in the oven to cook. It may take about 30 minutes to get golden brown on the top. I like to see the sides of the pie get brown as well.

Easier Method
Put a pot of water to boil. Add the macaroni only when the water is boiling. When the macaroni has cooked, turn off the stove and drain out the water. Add cheese, seasoning, salt, egg and milk and mix everything together. Pour out mixture into a baking dish. Layer the top with some grated cheese. Put the dish in oven for the macaroni pie to bake.

Update: 6th November 2009
This is the type macaroni that my mother uses to make Macaroni Pie. It is like a treat for me when I see it in the grocery, here in the BVI, so I purchased three boxes! It will be a while again before I see it in the grocery stores. When my mother finished baking this pie, I would pick of the most crispiest piece of macaroni! I still do!!!!
