Makaroni Skutel [ Macaroni Casserole ]

I just can't get enough of cooking casserole! Its easy and it makes left over for the next day lunch.. This casserole is a classic in my family. My mom always make it at least once when I was still living with herand it easily became one of my comfort food. 

3 cups of macaroni (I used fusili)
1 Onion, finely chopped
3 garlic, finely chopped
1 tbsp butter
500 gr ground meat
1 cup diced carrot
1 cup corn kernel
1 cup button mushroom, diced
¼ cup pitted olives, cut in 3 (optional)
½ cup of diced red bell pepper
½ Tsp white pepper
½ Tsp nutmeg
4 clove buds  or ½ Tsp powdered clove
1 Tsp beef broth powder or salt
5 sheets of bacon, thinly sliced (I used chicken bacon)
4 eggs
200 ml milk
100 ml cream
2 cup shredded cheese (I used mix pack of pre-shredded cheddar and mozarella)

Cooking step: 

  1. Boil 3 cups of macaroni until al dente, set aside, 
  2. Sautée onion and garlic in butter in a big pan until the onion turns translucent,
  3. Add the meat, white pepper, nutmeg, cloves and salt, stir well,
  4. Add carrot, mushroom and corn. Stir well. Be careful not to make the veggies too soft in this stage otherwise it will get overcooked after baking, 
  5. Stir in half of the bacon,
  6. Taste the mixture for saltiness, adjust to your taste, close the stove and put the mixture aside,
  7. Stir in the boiled macaroni and olives, 
  8. In a bowl, mix the eggs, milk and cream together,
  9. Pour the egg mix into the meat, stir well. Stir in 1 cup of shredded cheese. Stir well,
  10. Spread the mixture evenly onto a pyrex. Sprinkle the rest of the bacon and shredded cheese evenly on top,
  11. Bake for 25 minutes in the oven on 350 F,
  12. Continue baking for another 5 minutes on convection or just until the surface turns golden,  
  13. Et voila, serve with ketchup aside. 

Happy cooking!
