1 lb. macaroni
1/2 lb. grated cheddar cheese
1/2 cup finely chopped sweet onion
2 - 3 tablespoons butter
3 slices bread
Cook macaroni al dente according to package directions and set aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Butter a casserole dish and put dots of butter on the bottom of the dish. Layer macaroni and onion, salt and pepper the macaroni, and add cheese. Do this three times.
Break bread into small pieces and soak with milk until soft, then make a 'hedge' around the top of the casserole with the bread first then fill in the center.
Bake for 25 minutes, then turn the heat up to 400 for 10 minutes to brown the topping.
