Classic Mac and Cheese

1/2 pound dried macaroni
1 teaspoon butter
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon dried mustard powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
3 cups sharp grated cheddar cheese, plus extra for sprinkling

Heat the oven to 350° F. Boil macaroni in water until tender and drain thoroughly.

Stir in butter and egg.

Mix mustard and salt with 1 tablespoon hot water and add to milk.

Add cheese, reserving enough to sprinkle on top.

Pour macaroni into buttered 8-inch-square casserole dish, add milk mixture, and sprinkle with remaining cheese (and a little extra!!). Bake for about 45 minutes, or until custard is set and top is crusty.
