Don't have a round slow cooker ?  -  " Click Here " to see the one I use ....

Now I love Macaroni and Cheese .... then again .... " Who Doesn't ! "

   It took me a lot of " trial runs " to get this one just the way I like it and it's " so goooood ! "

         It's kind of in the middle of being " saucey enough " that kids like it but not " so saucey " that adults don't.   I think what happened over time was that so many parents made Kraft Macaroni & Cheese for their kids that the kids thought that saucey cheese and little " Itty-bitty noodles " were what Macaroni and cheese was all about .....

" Look below in Tips & Ideas to see how you can change this up a little ! "


Ingredients:

  •   2 - cups of dry elbow macaroni pasta  -  ( hint - thats 1/2 of a 1 lb. box )

  •   5 - Tablespoons of butter

  •   4 - cups ( 2 - 8 oz. packages ) of shredded sharp cheddar cheese  -  ( divided )  -  ( #1 )

  •   1 - 12 oz. can of Evaporated Milk

  •   1 - 10 & 3/4 oz. can of Cambell's Cheedar Cheese soup

  •   1 - Egg  -  ( scrambled up )

  •   Salt & Pepper  -  ( to taste )


Directions:

  1.   Cook macaroni to your desired firmness on the stove top ( Note: the macaroni will only cook " slightly more " once in the slow cooker ) .

  2.   While macaroni is cooking add 3 and 1/2 cups of the shredded cheese into a " Large Bowl "  -  ( saving 1/2 cup ) .

  3.   Then add the evaporated milk, cheddar cheese soup, egg, and desired amount of salt & pepper to the " Large Bowl ".

  4.   Then mix well.

  5.   Cut up the 5 tablespoons of butter into small slices.

  6.   Drain macaroni and immediately add to the slow cooker.

  7.   Immediately put the cut up 5 tablespoons of butter on the hot macaroni and stir until all melted.

  8.   Slowly add the ingredients to the slow cooker and stir to combine.

  9.   Cover slow cooker and cook on " low " for 3 1/2 to 4 hours.

( #1 )  ~  You can, " of course ", use shredded sharp cheddar cheese ( as suggested above ), shredded medium cheddar cheese, or even one bag of each.  ~  " But to really change it up " try a different cheese ..... such as:
  • " Shredded Swiss Cheese " ..... or

  • " Shredded Mexican Blend Cheese " ..... or

  • " For Taco Tuesday "  ~  " Shredded Mexican Blend Taco Seasoned Cheese " to have with your " Tacos ! " ..... or

  • " Think outside the box " and check out all the shredded cheese next time your in the grocery store .....
