Personal Notes:
I got the basic recipe for this from a magazine and changed it only slightly. I have never made macaroni and cheese with eggs before, it is very good and makes it have a more cohesive consistency. If you hate American 'cheese' I'm sure there's something else that will work, but the dish will be a little different.
