I have made this a few times and find it quick and easy. I add diced onion, dry mustard, and pepper. I also decrease the processed cheese while adding another kind of shredded cheese, whatever I have on hand. Making it again today!
I used fat free evaporated milk, reduced fat cheeses, omitted the butter and it came out EXCELLENT!!!! Great recipe!!!! I was very happy I used a liner in my crockpot though :o)
I make this all the time. Everyone raves about it. I use Barilla multi-grain macaroni, and it holds up better than standard macaroni in the slow-cooker. It has a higher fiber content and fills you up pretty fast.
I thought this was very good. I usually meke mac 'n' cheese in the oven with a fresh bread crrump topping and so thought I might be disappointed with this recipe but I was not. The texture was great, it came together very quickly and I love that it can be made in a slow cooker. Will be making again!!!
Picture doesn't do it justice (mean that in the nicest way! Was a hit with freshmen boys basketball team! Took a calculated risk, having never made it before, and served it as part of a meal we serve them after "away" games. They really liked it! TIP: Keep it on low, I turned it up to heat it back up quick after transporting and burnt a small part of it.
