Mac and Cheese

This delicious comforting version of macaroni and cheese cooks in your crockpot - yes, even the pasta! You need to watch the timing for this recipe carefully; don't make it and then leave the house for hours. And remember that every crockpot cooks a little bit differently; know how yours works before you make this recipe.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 4 hours

Total Time: 4 hours, 15 minutes

Yield: Serves 4-6

Ingredients:

  • 1 (10-ounce) container refrigerated Alfredo sauce
  • 12 ounce can evaporated milk
  • 1-1/3 cups whole milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 pound macaroni pasta
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups shredded American cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/8 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1-1/2 cups breadcrumbs

Preparation:

Spray the inside of the slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray. In a large bowl, beat Alfredo sauce with the fresh and evaporated milks, egg, and mustard. Stir in UNCOOKED macaroni and all of the shredded cheeses, 3 tablespoons melted butter, pepper, onion and garlic powders, and salt; mix well.

Pour into 4 quart crockpot. Cover and cook on low for 3 to 4 hours; test to make sure macaroni is cooked. Do NOT stir or remove the lid while this dish is cooking.

To finish off the recipe, you can melt 1/4 cup butter in a small saucepan. Add breadcrumbs and toast. Sprinkle over the mac and cheese just before serving.

Great...and I added something, Guest DLWoldanski

This was great for the kiddies. I spruced it up fir adults with a little sherry, lobster pieces and added buttered bread crumbs to the top before serving. Yumm.
