This week’s Slow Cooker Showcase recipe is from Mackenzie at The Centsible Family that is a perfect family classic to serve. Prep time should be about 15 minutes and will cook for four hours on low and yield about 8 servings.

Recipe: Slow Cooker Showcase: Macaroni and Cheese

Slow-Cooker-Mac-and-CheeseIngredients

  • 10 ounce (2 1/4 cups) dry whole wheat elbow macaroni
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella/swiss cheese
  • 8 ounces American cheese, thinly sliced and roughly chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 12 ounce can evaporated milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat bread crumbs

Directions

  1. Coat inside of slow cooker bowl with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Combine macaroni, cheeses, milk and evaporated milk in slow cooker bowl; stir well and cover; cook on LOW for 4 hours.
  3. When there is 30 minutes cook time remaining, stir in Worcestershire, salt and pepper.
  4. Melt butter in a small nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in bread crumbs and cook, stirring often, for 2 minutes or until toasted and golden. Sprinkle over Mac & Cheese and serve immediately.

Notes

I modified this recipe from Family Circle as I didn’t have everything they listed AND my slow cooker cooked faster then their 3 hours for High. I recommend only cooking on low because it WILL burn if cooked too much.

    Made this and it’s going to be one of my standard recipes! So easy to toss in and let it cook! I don’t know how anyone could get it to turn out by cooking on high. It was already browning on low at the 4 hour mark, so good tip on the change from the original recipe.
