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.

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.
