Crockpot Mac + Cheese.

When the idea of Friendsgiving first came up, I knew immediately I wanted to make something that was going to be super easy and that would please both the guys and the gals. I came across a crockpot mac + cheese recipe on fellow southerner Stephanie's blog, Newlyweds:North, and a light bulb went off. This is the one! Can you believe in all of my 29.90 years on Earth this would be my first attempt at mac + cheese, other than the little blue box?? Me either.
Anyway, if you're looking for an easy side dish to throw together in the crockpot, try this one! Super yummy and super cheesy, just like mac + cheese should be.

Crockpot Mac + Cheese
Recipe found here. 
16oz (1 box) large shells - I used penne
3 cups grated sharp cheddar - I only used 2 because that's all that was in a bag
Block of Cabot Razzor Sharp White, shredded or cubed
Block Cabot Monterey Jack, shredded or cubed
1 large can evaporated milk
1 1/2 cups regular milk
1 stick of butter, melted - I only used half
2 eggs
Salt and pepper
Spray crockpot with pam.
Cook noodles according to package and drain.
Add cheese and noodles to crock pot and stir together.
Add melted butter and stir again.
In separate bowl, beat eggs and milks together. Add to crockpot.
Add salt, pepper and paprika, and mix well.
Cook on low. After 1 hour, stir again. Cook for 2 more hours, or until milk at bottom is gone.
Enjoy, and soak in all of the compliments you will be receiving!

  3. I made this last month and it is now my go-to mac & cheese recipe. It is also a great dish for an office pot luck. If you are feeling really indulgent, top it with Stephanie's no-bean chili. It's the definition of cold weather comfort food. Mmmmm my mouth is watering just thinking about it!
