Crock Pot Mac N Cheese

Ever since I was I was a little girl, I have always loved homemade macaroni and cheese. It all started at my Aunt Brenda’s house where she would host Thanksgiving for the whole family and whoever else was lucky enough to show up.

Everyone loved her cooking and Thanksgiving was her time to shine. She would make almost everything from scratch like yeast rolls, stuffing, and an assortment of other delicious sides as well as her famous pies for dessert.

While she was cooking my sister and I would sneak into the kitchen to steal chunks of the extra sharp cheddar cheese she was slicing to make her famous mac n cheese. We would eat as much as we could get our hands on and have always enjoyed this cheese ever since thanks to my Aunt Brenda being preoccupied with other dishes long enough for us to sneak a few chunks.

I recently spoke to my Aunt Brenda and found out that she knew every year that we were sneaking in to steal her cheese and she actually bought an extra block each year just for us. She said that she would hear us coming in to the kitchen and would turn her back just in time so we would feel like we were getting away with something. She is one of the sweetest women I have ever known and every time I see a block of Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese, I think of her.

Since this dish was one of the highlights of my childhood I decided to recreate it but I wanted to make it in an easy way that allows me to free up the other burners on Thanksgiving Day, so I created a Crock Pot Mac N Cheese recipe that rivals Aunt Brenda’s cheesy mac n cheese.

Crock Pot Mac N Cheese

It’s really simple to make and after boiling the elbow macaroni for about 5 minutes, you just throw the rest of the ingredients into the crock pot and get busy cooking other stuff because it’s really that simple. Just be sure to stir occasionally.

If you are like me and don’t have time to watch the pot, pick up this CROCK POT THAT STIRS ITSELF, this is one of the best purchases I have ever made!

If you have left overs that you would like to reheat, add a small amount of milk before reheating to prevent the macaroni from drying out.

Also if your macaroni and cheese is too thick, add a little more milk and stir.
