LOVE this mac&cheese. Cook to your liking. A little less cook time and a bit more milk to make it creamier.
- 8 ounces cooked elbow macaroni, cooked 2/3 time the directions call for
- 4 tablespoons butter, cut into pieces
- 2 1⁄2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
- 3 eggs, beaten
- 1⁄2 cup sour cream
- 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can condensed cheddar cheese soup
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup whole milk
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dry mustard
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- In a medium saucepan, mix butter and cheese. Stir until the cheese melts.
- In a slow cooker, combine cheese/butter mixture and add the eggs, sour cream, soup, salt, milk, mustard and pepper and stir well.
- Add cooked and drained macaroni and stir again.
- Set the slow cooker on low and cook for 3 hours, stirring occasionally.
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.
Oh, that's paprika on top.. mom always did it, so I do too!
