LOVE this mac&cheese. Cook to your liking. A little less cook time and a bit more milk to make it creamier.

LOVED this mac-n-cheese!! Adding the eggs really does make a difference and helps the cheese. I was worried about cheese in the crockpot- but the eggs helps it not to become "rubbery" or dried out. I pre-boiled my noodles about 6 minutes. Just be sure to stir every once in awhile to prevent cheese from sticking or spray first with a cooking spray (such as Pam).

As mac and cheese goes, this was quite good. I added crumbled bacon for a little additional flavor, and used whole wheat pasta. Mac & cheese is not my favorite by any stretch, but this was well worth the time and the kids were happy. Thanks!

Super Cheesy! Super Tender! Only drawback, and I use only fat free sour cream, it's very greasy.

BUT, yum!

Oh, that's paprika on top.. mom always did it, so I do too!
