In my eyes this is the most delicious macaroni and cheese recipe out there. We are talking caramelized onions, saltine crackers, white Cheddar cheese, Parmesan cheese and a beautiful creamy sauce. One taste and you will be hooked for life!

1 (8 oz.) pkg. large elbow macaroni
2 tablespoons butter
2 large onions, halved and thinly sliced
1 teaspoon sugar
1 (16 oz.) block white Cheddar cheese~shredded
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
32 Saltine crackers~finely crushed and divided
6 large eggs
4 cups milk
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons melted butter

Prepare macaroni according to package directions; drain well and set aside.
Melt the 2 tablespoons of butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add sliced onions and sugar. Cook, stirring often, 20 minutes or until thoroughly caramelized til golden.
Layer half  each of cooked macaroni, onions, cheeses, and cracker crumbs in a lightly greased 13X9-inch baking dish. Layer with remaining macaroni, onions, and cheeses.
Whisk together eggs and next 3 ingredients; pour over macaroni mixture.
Stir together remaining half of cracker crumbs, and 2 more tablespoons melted butter. Sprinkle evenly over macaroni mixture.
