Crock Pot Creamy Macaroni & Cheese

"This is a lighter version of macaroni and cheese with a creamy consistency. This could be made lower fat using light Velveeta. *Note* If you don't like it real thick, you can decrease the cooking time by an hour or so and it will be just as good, just not AS thick :)"

  1. I was disappointed by this recipe. For one, I would hardly call it a crock pot recipe. Most of work is done on the stove in a separate pan - using the crock pot is just an after-thought. For two, it's really uninspiring. Does it takes like mac and cheese? Sure, but it's not the jaw-dropping, gotta-have-it kind. Plus as a busy mom, I don't think as being useful. I had to put in extra spices (like pepper) to give it any kind of taste. My kids liked it, but they even weren't excited by it. That should say it all.
  2. I made this for our Christmas potluck at work. I cooked the macaroni and mixed it all up the night before, then put in the crockpot in the morning at work and just left on the warm setting since I have a "hot" crockpot. I thought the taste was okay, but it was very sticky and clumped together by serving time. I think it was just too warm for too long. I may try this again at home when I can follow the directions more precisely. Thanks!
  3. I made this for my kids birthday party and it was a hit. I tripled the recipe and added dry mustard, and black pepper. Mine only took two hours to cook. This was so quick and easy I could see making this for a reunion.
  4. Made this today for a cook out at work and everyone loved it. Thanks for a great recipe!
  5. Very good and easy! I was fearful of adding the onions, but it gave it just a perfect, subtle taste. I only needed to cook mine 2 hours! I used skimmed evaporated milk and 2% velveeta and it worked great. I will definately make this again, probably add black pepper and perhaps dry mustard next time! Thanks for a keeper of a recipe!


  1. Very tasty and easy with ingredients on hand. Only thing I did different wast use half a small onion in place of the minced because we love onions. Creamy and had no problem with it being too thick just right will make again.


Pretty much says it all , doesn't it.
