Slow Cooker Mac and Cheese
You know those days when you don’t want to turn on the oven or do any real cooking on the stove but you could really go for some good old-fashioned cheesy carb-loaded comfort food? I had one of those days last week and this mac and cheese really hit the spot.
Keep in mind this is not one of those fix-it-and-forget-it recipes because the cooking time is only 2-3 hours and you will need to stir it occasionally so plan accordingly.
I served this with a plate of fresh vegetables and a sliced baguette, for sopping up the extra cheesy sauce. Carbs on carbs. I didn’t even care. Totally worth it.
- 12 oz. macaroni pasta
- 4 Tablespoons butter
- 12 oz. evaporated milk

- 3 cups Cheddar cheese shredded
- 8 oz. Velveeta cubed
- salt & pepper to taste
- Place all ingredients in the slow cooker.
- Cook on Low setting 2-3 hours, stirring gently every 30 minutes until done.
