Tuesday, November 7th, 2017

This homemade macaroni and cheese recipe is made for your slow cooker and for cooler days when you want something extra comforting. Serve it up during the weeknight or for a holiday party this year, and add chicken, bacon, broccoli and more for a well-rounded meal.

Elbow Macaroni

What you’ll need:

  • 1 pound elbow macaroni
  • 5 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 4 oz. cream cheese
  • 24 ounces evaporated milk
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • salt and pepper as desired

Directions:

  1. In the slow cooker, combine macaroni, cheddar cheese, cream cheese, evaporated milk, whole milk and garlic powder; mix well.
  2. Add melted butter, salt and pepper and mix. Put the cover on the slow cooker and cook on high until the pasta is cooked through and the sauce is thickened – about 2-3 hours
  3. Uncover and stir after 2 hours. If the pasta is not cooked through or the sauce is not thick enough, keep the macaroni and cheese in the slow cooker and check every 20 minutes). Serve and enjoy!
