Crockpot Mac & Cheese

I have no idea how long I’ve had this recipe, or where it came from. It is written on a tiny scrap of paper that is crumpled and stained – but everyone LOVES this macaroni and cheese. It is simple and delicious.

I’m sure you could mix all the ingredients together and bake it, but I never have. I usually cook the pasta until just under cooked since I don’t want it to get soggy. While the pasta is cooking, I get the rest of the ingredients together and into the Crockpot. Stir well and then let it cook. I normally stir it a couple of times while it is cooking. I often double the recipe- my Crockpot will just barely hold that much.

We love our Mac and cheese with crushed Cheez-It’s on top. As you can see from the picture, we added a bit of leftover chili this time and some chopped green onions to a bowl too. It’s also a great camping meal.
