Crock-Pot Mac & Cheese

     Happy New Year Everyone!  We hope everyone had a great night and celebrated the New Year safely!  To start off the New Year we wanted to give everyone an easy dish they can serve up during this cold time of year!  Mac and Cheese is a very popular dish and there are many ideas and different post and video's but we wanted to give you ours.  We do have others we want to give you but this one is our low and slow recipe.

Serves:  6-8

Prep Time: 5 Minutes
Cook Time: 1-2 Hours
Total Time: 2+ Hours

1 lb of dry macaroni, we used Elbow
1 Stick of butter
4 Cups, shredded cheddar cheese. Divided 3 cups and 1 cup
2 Eggs
1 (20 3/4 oz) Can of cheddar cheese soup
1 (12 oz) Can evaporated milk
1 Cup of milk
Pinch of Paprika
Pinch of Salt
2 Table spoons oil

Heat up water with a pinch of salt.
Once boiling add pasta in.
Add 2 Table Spoons of Oil
Let cook for a few minutes, you want the pasta to be al dente.  Soft on the outside, hard on the inside.
Drain and place the pasta in your slow cooker
Add one stick of butter, cut up into pieces so it melts faster.
In a larger bowl add 3 cups of cheddar cheese.
Add the 2 Eggs.
Add 1 Can of cheddar cheese soup.
Add 1 Can of evaporated milk.
Add 1 cup regular milk.
Mix up.
Add the mixture over the pasta and stir in well.
Place the lid on and set to low.
Let cook for 1 hour and check.
After 1 hour, stir the mac and cheese and see how it is.
*If you are satisfied, you can finish and serve or let cook another 1/2 hour-hour.
Once you feel the pasta is done add 1 cup of cheddar cheese and mix in.
*If you feel the pasta is a bit dry add 1-2 table spoons of milk and mix in.

Place pasta in a bowl and sprinkle a touch more of cheddar cheese on top.
Sprinkle a bit of paprika over top

If you need a bit a time, you can crack the lid and keep the crackpot on warm.
Serve and enjoy!

     As you can see from the picture it really is a nice looking meal!  This meal doesn't take to long to make so you do have to check the crackpot every so often.  After 1 hour you can decide to let it go longer for a thicker mix or keep it creamy.  To thicken the dish up, let it cook longer.  Add milk to make it creamy.  Remember the dish is not ruined!  There are things you can do if you over or under cook it.  We do hope you watch the video below we think you really will enjoy it.

     Well for our first dish of the 2017 year we hope you enjoyed it!  This meal is really easy to make and we do hope you try it out.  With winter here a good easy warm meal is perfect for staying inside and warm!  We again hope you enjoyed this video and subscribe to our channel.  Check out any other blog recipes and videos we have done and feel free to ask questions or leave comments!

Have a healthy and safe New Year!
