  • 1 lb. elbow macaroni
  • 4 cups water
  • 4 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp. seasoned salt
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • 12 oz. evaporated milk
  • 1 lb. medium cheddar cheese small cubes


  • Add 1 pound elbow macaroni to the pot. Then add 4 cups of water and 4 tablespoons butter. Lock the lid and cook for 4 minutes at high pressure.
  • Meanwhile - beat 2 eggs together with 1 tablespoon seasoned salt and 1 teaspoon black pepper. Whisk in 1 large can of evaporated milk into egg mixture.
  • Once cook time is complete - quick-release pressure. Be aware that some of the starchy bubbles may try to come our the the vent, so you will need to do this gradually. Keep a towel handy. Then mix the pasta well. It may appear to be stuck to the bottom, but it should be just fine.
  • Switch to sauté setting - add egg/milk mixture and stir very well. Continue stirring until it comes back up to a boil. 
  • Add cheese and continue mixing until fully melted.
