Cafeteria-Style Macaroni & Cheese

1/2 pound elbow macaroni
1 1/2 cups milk
1 1/2 teaspoons powdered mustard
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon salt
Few drops of hot pepper sauce
3 1/2 tablespoons butter
1 egg, beaten
3 1/2 cups grated sharp Cheddar cheese (about 3/4 pound)
1/2 cup fresh bread crumbs
1/2 teaspoon paprika

Preheat the oven to 350F. Butter a shallow 2 quart baking dish.

In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the macaroni until
tender but still firm, about 8 minutes. Drain well.

Meanwhile, in a small heavy saucepan, bring the milk to a simmer
over moderate heat. Removed from the heat and stir in the powdered
mustard, Worcestershire sauce, salt and hot pepper sauce. Set the
seasoned milk aside.

Transfer the macaroni to a medium bowl. Add 1 1/2 tablespoons of
the butter and the egg and mix well. Stir in 3 cups of the Cheddar
cheese. Spread the macaroni evenly in the buttered baking dish.
Pour the seasoned milk over the macaroni and sprinkle with the
remaining 1/2 cup grated cheese.

In a small skillet, melt the remaining 2 tablespoons butter over
moderate heat. Stire in the bread crumbs until well coated.
Scatter the buttered crumbs evenly over the macaroni and sprinkle
with the paprika.

Bake for 30 minutes, or until the macaroni is bubbling and lightly
colored. Transfer to the broiler and broil about 6 inches from
the heat until the bread crumbs are golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes.
