New Recipe: Crock-Pot Mac and Cheese

Happy Tasty Tuesday!
I have been on my 'cooking game' these past few weeks, trying at least two new recipes a week so I'm excited about all the new idea's I will be sharing with you over the next few weeks. I'm not going to lie there are some weeks where I struggle to find a new Tasty Tuesday recipe for all of you and I have to improvise (like that time I thought showing you how to make homemade pizza counted as a real recipe, whoops!). I can promise you that the next few weeks I have some easy and tasty dinners for you to try and this week is no exception.
 Many of you know that the Super Bowl is the weekend and personally I could care less about football but I do love the snacks and cheat days that go along with Superbowl Sunday. So I thought what better comfort food to sit down with to watch the big game than macaroni and cheese. I like to experiment with my mac and cheese recipes, sometimes I bake it in the oven and other times I make it on the stove but when I saw that you could make macaroni and cheese in the crock-pot I was immediately intrigued. I always assumed that cooking macaroni in a crock-pot for several hours would make it mushy but that was not the case, instead it was creamy and delicious. So if you're looking for an easy dish to bring to a party this weekend, this is the recipe for you!

  • 1 box (12 ounces) of elbow macaroni
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk
  • 1 1/2 cups half & half
  • 3 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 8 ounces Velveeta cheese, cubed
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • red pepper flakes for garnish (I like a little bite to my mac and cheese!)

  • Spray crock-pot with Pam cooking spray.
  • In a large pot cook elbow macaroni for 7-8 minutes and drain. Place the cooked macaroni in the crock-pot with the butter and stir until melted. 
  • Add evaporated milk, half & half, shredded cheddar cheese, Velveeta, salt and pepper and stir to blend.
  • Cover and cook on low for 3 hours.
  • Place macaroni into serving bowls and garnish with red pepper flakes
  • Enjoy!
How do you make macaroni and cheese?


  1. Yum I will definitely have to try this! We always make homemade mac and cheese, a crock pot would be so helpful!

  2. Yum!!! I'm sure this is ten times better than the box kind!


  3. That looks sooooo good!
