This delicious Crock Pot Macaroni and Cheese recipe was given to me by my husband’s mother, Mrs. Miller. – Travel Animal Doctor
I had extra fun preparing the dish because since we just moved in not too long ago I could not find our big crockpot. Instead I used this small crockpot, and the food was overflowing! If you do the full recipe a large crockpot is needed. Alas, I got some pictures of the finished product, and it was absolutely amazing!
3 hrs 45 min
8 oz macaroni cooked
4 cups cheddar cheese
12 oz can evaporated milk
2 eggs whisked
1 ½ c. milk
½ stick melted butter
Salt, pepper, paprika
Put crock pot on low. Add cooked macaroni, 3 cups cheese, evaporated milk, eggs, milk, butter, salt, pepper and mix. Sprinkle last cup of cheese on top and paprika, keep on low and cook for 3 hrs 45 minutes. Crust will form on edges. Best macaroni and cheese.
My Take on the Recipe
You may see a hint of green bean below the macaroni and cheese in the picture because my husband mixed the two up when he ate it. This mac and cheese paired perfectly with the green beans. The recipe is our go to recipe when we are craving cheese.
Sometimes we also cut up vegetarian hot dogs to mix in the mac and cheese. Other times we eat the hot dogs as a quick main dish and eat the mac and cheese as a nice side dish alongside of green beans or another tasty vegetable such as corn.
With the addition of the vegetarian hot dogs, this dish is a perfect example of a healthier vegetarian version of an All – American favorite meal.
Alternative Meal Options
A favorite alternative meal my husband and I eat alongside of the crockpot mac and cheese is vegetarian Sloppy Joes. The sloppy Joes offer an extra source of protein and the flavors of the two pair very well together. While we are trying to keep soda pop out of the diet due to the high levels of sugar that it contains, we often use packets of crystal light to make sugar- free lemonade to go along with the meal.
