Creamy Crock Pot Macaroni and Cheese

Total Time

Yummy!! Free up your oven and cook this classic dish in your crock pot! I made this is my taller older, 4 qt. crock pot rather than my new larger oval shaped one that tends to run hot. This could also be baked in the oven if necessary.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook macaroni 4-6 minutes, keeping macaroni very al dente. Drain. Toss hot pasta with butter.
  2. In a greased crock pot, add cheese, soup, milk, sour cream, eggs, salt, pepper and mustard powder. Mix to combine.
  3. Add pasta to crock pot. Stir to combine well.
  4. Cook on low 2 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally. (Careful because when I cooked mine 30 min too long, it started to become grainy!).

First time I made Mac and Cheese in a crock pot. I don't like the canned cheddar flavor so I used velveta and an extra can of condensed milk instead. Nice creamy recipe although I am curious how it cooks if you don't stir it bc that is kind of the point of a crockpot meal - throw it in and leave it alone. That is the only reason I am giving this delicious repicpe a midle rating... not exactly a recipe I would consider a crockpot meal due to stirring every 30 minutes.

I made this for a work tailgating party and it was a big hit. I omitted the eggs and dry mustard. I would have also added some whole milk or nixed the evaporated milk altogether and added whole milk to make it creamier. It was very good, I will probably make it again and make some adjustments. It seems like I had to adjust the cooking time a little bit.
