If you’ve been looking for a way to make Macaroni and Cheese in the Slow Cooker, here you go! So simple, and a great way to pinch those pennies while eating at home. Enjoy!
As my son headed out the door on his way to school earlier this week, he said “Mom, can we please have Macaroni & Cheese for dinner tonight?” Well, normally I don’t consider Mac & Cheese an entree, but I had everything we needed, and had been dying to try out some Slow Cooker Mac & Cheese in Mrs. Potts (I really didn’t think it would work . . . .) Oh my goodness: it. was. perfect.
I’d seen several recipes for macaroni & cheese in the crockpot and read reviews saying they usually came out mushy, but this one was just right! I skipped a few steps in the original recipe to make life easier, so it should take you ten minutes or less to get this recipe thrown together. All I added were some Simple 7 Up Biscuits, green beans, salads and applesauce, which made for one yummy frugal feast at our house. If you’ve got some macaroni-and-cheese loving kids at your house I’m betting they’ll enjoy this one too.
- 1 box uncooked elbow macaroni
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 2 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1 can condensed cream of chicken soup
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 cup milk (we used 1%)
- 1/2 tsp. black pepper
- Boil macaroni for six minutes and drain.
- Meanwhile, spray slow cooker with cooking spray and soften butter for a few seconds in the microwave to make everything easier to combine.
- Once pasta is cooked, combine all ingredients in slow cooker and stir well.
- Cook on low for between 2 and 2 1/2 hours, stirring about every thirty minutes.
