It just means to slowly bring them up to temperature. Otherwise you could wind up with scrambled eggs in your mac n cheese. Which is gross haha.

Just beat them in a bowl, and slowly add some hot/warm water (or milk, or broth) and keep on beating them to bring the temperature up. Then add the whole egg mixture to your recipe. Should be fine.

*Edit* Just saw the flour/milk thing. They probably want you to melt the butter in a pot, add the milk, bring it up to temprature, add the egg, whisk in the flour. That would be my best guess.

It means slowly mix into the butter, flour, and milk. If you just dump in the egg, you'll suddenly cook it and end up with scrambled egg bits in your mixture. By adding slowly, you're basically changing how the egg combines and cook with the ingredient and you'll end up with a richer sauce.

"Sandstorms inflict damage of about $540 million per year, and losses of crops and forests due to acid rain amount to about $730 million per year. More serious are the $6 billion costs of the "green wall" of trees being built to shield Beijing against sand and dust, and the $7 billion per year of losses created by pest species. We enter the zone of impressive numbers when we consider the onetime cost of the 1996 floods ($27 billion, but still cheaper than the 1998 floods), the annual direct losses due to desertification ($42 billion), and the annual losses due to water and air pollution ($54 billion). The combination of the latter two items alone costs China the equivalent of 14% of its GDP each year." - Jared Diamond, Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed

Excellent! Oh yeah we just dump cheese til it looks like it's too much, then once it's cooked and melted it winds up being just enough.

Glad it was good! Cheers.

Awesome I haven't tried Alton's yet, but I do enjoy his Good Eats show. I did a search and there are like 6 different mac n cheese recipes from him tho haha.

I've tried Paula Deen's mac n cheese. It's awesome, so are her scrambled eggs if you're interested.

OOOOOOOOHHHHH sweet lord!!! I get fried mac n cheese at the Renaissance Festival every year. TGI Fridays' version is SOO delicious, but Cheesecake Factory's version is my fave, hands down.
