Home is Where the Love Is

Turning a house into a home…

Slow Cooked Macaroni & Cheese

It’s a warm day here in Maryland. The temperature is 91 and the heat index is 102. Because we don’t have central AC in our house, I decided to stick with dinner recipes that could either be done in the crockpot or in a skillet.

Tonight’s dinner is something we’ve never tried before: Slow Cooked Macaroni & Cheese from Moms With Crockpots. Macaroni and cheese is one of the first things I learned to make, and because it’s quick and easy, it’s a staple in our household.

Slow Cooked Macaroni & Cheese

By: Karen McCormick
Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 3 hours 30 mins
Total Time: 3 hours 45 mins
Serves: 6

Ingredients
- 8 ounces medium shell macaroni
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1 cup evaporated milk
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese or a Cheddar blend
- 4 tablespoons butter, melted

Directions

1. Cook the macaroni following package directions. Drain in a colander and rinse with hot water. Drain well.

2. Generously butter the sides and bottom of a 3 1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker (I use about 2 tablespoons of butter).

3. Combine the macaroni with the remaining ingredients in the slow cooker and blend well. Cover the slow cooker and cook on LOW for 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 hours, stirring a few times.

4. If desired, spoon the cooked macaroni and cheese mixture into a baking dish, sprinkle with a little more cheese, and put under the broiler for a minute or 2, just until cheese is melted.

5. When the macaroni and cheese is done, feel free to spoon into a baking dish, top with a little more cheese, and put under the broiler for a minute or two for that “fresh from the oven” look.

I’ll give a review of the recipe later! :)
