Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly butter a deep 2 1/2 quart casserole.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat, add the oil then the elbow macaroni and cook until macaroni is just tender (about 7 minutes). Do not overcook. Drain well and return to the pot.
In a small saucepan, melt the first measure of butter. Stir into the macaroni. In a large bowl, mix the Muenster, mild and sharp Cheddar cheese and the Monterey Jack cheese. To the macaroni, add the half and half, 1 1/2 cups of the shredded cheeses, the cubed Velveeta and the eggs. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to the buttered casserole. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup of cheese and dot with the remaining butter.
Bake until it is bubbling around the edges, about 35 minutes. Serve hot.
Heavenly! Rich, cheesy, creamy, everything you can want in a mac and cheese recipe!

My daughter-in-laws, mom makes this recipe. I have never been a fan of "mac and cheese" until I tried this. I liked it so much I had to ask for the recipe. It is amazing how delicious it is. I am making it for one of my family gatherings. Thanks Patti, and special thanks to Heather for sharing it and your wonderful daughter with me.DNeal

While cooped up inside my house due to Tropical Storm Isaac, I was browsing the net, and came upon this recipe. I basically had all the ingredients so I ventured to making it. It was a HIT. IT was creamy and cheesy. My Aunt who is a very picky eater, devoured 2 plates. Thanks Patti for Sharing!
