I knew that my oldest would be skeptical of something that didn't look like the box variety, so I had him help me make it so he would be willing to taste it. It took some convincing, but after he tasted his creation he declared, "Rock 'n roll! I love it". Both of the kids gobbled it up and my husband loved it too (and believe me, his family is from the south so he's had his fair share of mac n cheese). I served it with roasted broccoli and a light caesar salad (I love Ken's light caesar dressing).
This recipe is going in my regular rotation (well, it would if I had one of those...lol). Next time I'm gonna try to double the recipe to feed a crowd. It would be such an easy dish for a potlock or large family get together. Enjoy!
Crockpot Southern Style Mac n Cheese
Cooking oil spray
2 cups skim milk
1 (12 oz.) can evaporated milk
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 1/2 cups pre-shredded sharp cheddar cheese
2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni
Spray the pot of the slow cooker or if using a liner bag, spray the bag well. In a large mixing bowl whisk together milk, evaporated milk, beaten egg, salt and pepper. Pour milk mixture into the crockpot.
Gently stir together...seriously though, get your kids involved in this recipe (if you have kids).
Mine was ready after 3 hours and 15 minutes. Serve immediately with your favorite sides.
