Crock Pot Mac and Cheese

The last crock pot concoction on the menu for this week is the old stand-by Crock Pot Mac and Cheese.

I now have a stove!

I found this Paula Deen Mac and Cheese recipe, which I doubled (for a big group) and modified a little bit. It was delicious and a big hit - we had just enough left over for some lunch the next day, and it warmed up quite well!






Crock Pot Mac and Cheese

Ingredients:
1 (32 oz) box macaroni
8 tablespoons butter
pkgs shredded cheddar cheese
3/4 cup sour cream
2 (10 3/4 ounce) cans condensed cheddar cheese soup
2 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Step #1: Boil the macaroni in water for six minutes.  Drain.

Step #2:  In a saucepan, melt butter and cheese until melted.  As you can see, since I didn't have a stove, I just turned the crock pot on high and did it in there.  It took a long time, and I recommend the stove!

Step #3: Pour mixture into crockpot, and add sour cream, soup, milk, salt and pepper. Mix.

Step #4: Add macaroni and stir until covered. 

Step #5: Cook on low for 2 1/2 hours - stir occasionally.

  7. This was pretty great. I did melt the cheese and butter on High in the crockpot and it took somewhere between 1 - 2 hours since I forgot to check on it. I also stirred in some onion powder, seasoned salt (in place of regular salt, and I added an extra 1/2 tsp), ground mustard and a splash of white wine. I also used light sour cream, skim milk and reduced fat cheddar and it still turned out fabulous! I made it for a housewarming party thinking that a FULL crock pot would feed the 25 people that were attending. What i didn't know was people would love it so much that they were had seconds and thirds! It was gone in less than an hour. Thank you for posting! This is definitely a creamy, dreamy winner!

  10. My mom creates her popular how to make macaroni and cheese at Xmas every season and it is to die for! It always takes the display from the poultry and ham. Her formula creates a large quantity but there are never any remaining overs.

  11. This is a great recipe!

    Just a couple of questions:
    Is the cheese mitxture supposed to be lumpy and thick when you finish melting it with the butter? (almost like one thick layer of cheese)
    When say use 2 packages of cheese, are they 1lb each? Thanks!!!!!
