John’s Macaroni & Cheese

SERVES: 10–12 PREP: 15 minutes TOTAL TIME: 1 hour

Okay, I’ll admit it—it’s really that good.

I still like my creamy version better, but I am coming around to Johnny’s casserole-style mac 'n' cheese, which doesn’t require you to make a separate sauce and may—aren’t I kind?—just sit a little better on a buffet. It has a cheesy crust that gives you that good, good cheese pull, too.

  • 4 tablespoons (½ stick) unsalted butter, plus more for buttering the baking dish

  • 3 cups (¾ pound) dry elbow macaroni

  • 2 (12-ounce) cans evaporated milk

  • cup whole milk

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 teaspoons seasoning salt, such as Lawry’s

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus more to taste

  • 4 cups (1 pound) extra-sharp cheddar cheese, grated

  • 2 cups (½ pound) Monterey Jack cheese, grated + Paprika, for sprinkling
