This slow cooker macaroni and cheese recipe is so easy! It’s not fancy but it is flavorful. And I love that you know exactly what’s in it – as opposed to the boxed stuff. And I used my absolute favorite cheese, Tillamook!
This recipe is from Not Your Mother’s Slow Cooker Cookbook (Amazon) – a cookbook I bought in preparation for this Crock-tober series and I have really enjoyed the book!
1 1/2 cups skim or low-fat milk
One 15-ounce can evaporated skim milk
1 large egg, beaten
1/4 teaspoon salt
Large pinch of black pepper
1 1/2 cups shredded medium or sharp cheddar cheese (I used my favorite, Tillamook cheese!)
8 ounces uncooked elbow macaroni (about 2 cups) – this is HALF the box
2 tablespoons shredded parmesan cheese
HOW TO PREPARE
1.) Coat your slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray. In a separate bowl combine low-fat and evaporated milks, egg, salt and papper in the cooker and whisk until smooth. Add the cheese and uncooked macaroni – stir it in softly.
2.) Pour mixture into slow cooker and cook on low for 3.5 to 4 hours. Mine was done in only about 2.5 hours! Watch it, you don’t want it to overcook. If you overcook it the sides will burn and dry out.
3.) Sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Enjoy!

Although the Crockpot deal is awesome, I love my Crockpot that my husband got me for Xmas last year 🙂 Soooo, I think I’d have to go with the BuyOne-GetOne Salads, BuyOne-GetOne Recliners (we’re thinking about going half and half with my mother-in-law, that way we can get two Recliners one for my father-in-law and one for my hubby). Oh and of course, the Coke 4 for $11 Deal is GREAT in addition to (my personal) stock up price on Cereal!!!
