Fancy Baked Mac & Feta Cheese (Fırında Peynirli Makarna)




















This recipe is a result of having no velveeta and yet being too lazy to go to the store.

2 cups macaroni
2 eggs
Milk, a little less than 1 cup
1 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/2 cup sliced black olives (Jen wasn't home for dinner)
1 1/2 tbsp butter or 1/4 cup oil
1/2 bunch parsley or dill
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp crushed pepper
1/2 tsp thyme
1 cup or more grated cheese (cheddar, Swiss, etc.)

-Cook macaroni for 15-20 minutes and rinse
-Mix eggs and milk in a bowl and add feta, olives, oil, parsley, thyme, and pepper
-Add macaroni to this mix and put them in a casserole
-Put the grated cheese on top
-Bake macaroni in preheated oven (375°F) until top is crisp and golden, and cheese melts


I cannot believe I'm saying this but it's true: It's so much better than mac & cheese. Also Aaron thinks mushrooms would be great in this.

  2. I make this recipe all the time now. It's the only mac and cheese recipe I use anymore. Another great spin on it is to replace the olives with mushrooms. Or you can throw them in together with the olives, depending on what strikes your fancy!
