Delicious and easy Crock Pot Mac and Cheese
This crock pot mac and cheese is creamy and delicious! The best part it is an easy dinner recipe that won’t heat up your house. I love slow cooker recipes. Did you know you can make baked potatoes in the slow cooker? I also have a favorite slow cooker lasagna recipe.The crock pot does all the cooking while you are getting other stuff done. It is the perfect kitchen helper.
This rich and creamy recipe won’t disappoint. I am always asked for the recipe! I think the two kinds of milk make it extra rich and yummy. This recipe is a great comfort food to take to a friend in need, or a special treat to fill the bellies of little ones. Even those picky eaters! It tastes like you spent hours cooking it, but with the crock pot doing all of the work (3-4 hours), it will only take you a few minutes of cooking.
Crock Pot Mac and Cheese
Put ingredients in your slow cooker and forget it until dinner time when you will enjoy creamy macaroni and cheese! YUM!

We don’t eat alot of Velveta at our house, but it really works in this recipe. If you want to try some other mac and cheese recipes you might like my stove top macaroni and cheese and this one pot macaroni and cheese which is made with cheddar cheese. Macaroni and cheese seems to be a staple dish in any household with children. It is also a dish that when it is homemade, is often loved by adults too. So keeping some dry macaroni, Velveeta cheese, and evaporated milk in pantry will almost always ensure that you can create a loved-by-all homemade dish at a moments notice. I think that every cook should have a mac and cheese recipe that they, and those they love will enjoy eating! It should be a dish that creates warm memories for your kids so that they will someday grow up and declare…”It’s just like my mom used to make” as they bite into some fancy mac and cheese dish at a fancy over-priced restaurant.
