I made this for Christmas last year and loved it! This is the type of mac & cheese I grew up on, not the stuff in the blue box. My extended family thought it was strange, but ate some. The next day they asked for more!
What size crock pot do I need for this? Or if I want to make it in a conventional oven, how should I adjust the recipe?Many thanks!
I am Pam Rawlinson, the person who submitted this recipe. Feel free to add more cream or evaporated milk to make sure this is creamy.
This was very good. 4 out of 5 people like it. Which in my house, is outstanding. However, next time I think I will just bake it. I also would have liked it to be a little creamier.
Oh my! Totally yummy.
I never thought you could cook Mac n Cheese in a slow cooker so I was very interested in trying this recipe. To me it seamed a little bland and cooking it on high so long just doesn't "crisp" the crust, it burns it and makes it seem like you are eating bark from a tree. It also makes a huge amount. I think this is a unique way to cook Mac n cheese so here's what I will do next time. Half the recipe and cook in a smaller crock pot on low. You can always put it on high for a bit if you feel the outside not brown enough Mix a few different cheeses, perhaps even some pepper jack to give it some pop. Also I would decrease amount of butter, it was a little greasy.
The slow cooker gives it nice, crispy edges.
best mac and cheese recipe ever! i made it for easter.....because i could make it in the slow cooker, it freed up space in my microwave. very creamy, cheesy and delicious!
Just like the cafeteria style. Family loved it...
