Being from the South, your recipe collection isn’t complete unless it has one for macaroni and cheese. Now I know everyone has there own way of making it, myself included. But I have always wondered about the slow cooker method.
Slow Cooker Cheesy Mac 'n Cheese
Add all ingredients to slow cooker and stir, making sure all items get coated. Cook on high for 3 1/2 hours, stirring every hour.
- 1 pound medium elbow macaroni
- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- 2 cups grated American cheese
- 4 ounces cream cheese, cubed
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 3 cups whole milk
- 12 ounces evaporated milk
- 2 tsp. Dijon mustard
- 1/2 tsp. onion powder
- salt and peppar to taste
Add all ingredients, stirring until all are coated. Cook on high for 31/2 hours, stirring every hour.
If the mixture is too thick, you may add a little more whole milk.
So I am trying it for you today. This is not only delicious, it is so easy to make. All you do is dump all the ingredients in your slow cooker, give it a stir every hour, and your family will be begging for this dish all the time!
You can substitute any types of cheese in place of the ones I have listed. Just make sure they are grated.
I even found a special mac ‘n cheese blend at Food Lion but I got the last bag!
I really like the convenience of a slow cooker. You can throw all the ingredients in before you go to work. This recipe wouldn’t work for an all day cook but getting back at lunchtime to start it and coming home to a hot dish of cheesy deliciousness, you will be so glad you took a few minutes of time for this recipe.
