K & W mac and cheese

I'm not sure how my grandmother got the recipe from K & W, but this is probably the easiest and yummiest mac and cheese ever. I used to make it for my brother and his friends in college and they loved it when I added diced ham to it and would eat it as a complete meal :)

Ingredients:
8 oz macaroni, uncooked
2 cups cottage cheese
1 cup sour cream
1 large egg, slightly beaten
3 cups cheddar cheese, grated
1 tsp. Salt

Directions: Cook macaroni according to package; drain. Mix all ingredients, reserving ¾ cup cheddar cheese to sprinkle on top. Bake in buttered baking dish until bubbly on top; approx. 35 minutes at 350

My name is Nate and I want to thank you for this recipe. Every time I have gone to K&W for the last 30 years I have eaten the mac and cheese. I will leave the restaurant if they don't have it, that's how much I love it. I am trying your recipe tommorow, and will thank you again if it really is the right recipe. Thank you

I liked it, however I thought it had a little too much sour cream. When I make it next, I'd tweak it a little and not put AS MUCH sour cream. Other than that, no complaints!

An excellent recipe! I added gouda cheese to add to the flavor. Even my 2 teenage nephews loved it and took some home for later.

I moved to an area without k&w... Actually come to think of it there are no cafeterias around. I already tried this recipe and it is fantastic! Tastes just like theirs! Thank you!!

Just tried this recipe last night - thank you SOOOO much! The mac & cheese took me right back to the 70s - dining at K&W at North Hills Mall in Raleigh with my family. Great memories and a great recipe - thank you again for sharing!

The absolute best!!! I added half a block of cream cheese & blended the cottage cheese, cream cheese, sour cream & egg in the blender to smooth out the cottage cheese & it was absolutely amazing!! Thank you for this recipe!!
