I smoked some ribs and wanted an easy side dish. I don’t ever do crockpot mac and cheese and revisiting some of my cookbooks on hand. I love most all of Trisha’s recipes I’ve tried, but this one was a flop for me. The cheese got real chunky and it was really greasy.
Crockpot Macaroni and Cheese
(Adapted from Home Cooking with Trisha Yearwood)
8 ounces elbow macaroni, cooked
1 12-ounce can evaporated milk
1 ½ cup cups whole milk
2 large eggs, beaten
¼ cup (½ stick) butter, melted
1 teaspoon salt
2 10-ounce bricks sharp cheddar cheese, grated (about 5 cups)
Dash of paprika
In a large 4 quart crock pot sprayed with cooking spray, mix the macaroni, milks, eggs, butter, salt, pepper and all but ½ cup of the grated cheese.
Sprinkle the reserved cheese over the top of the mixture and then sprinkle with paprika.
Cook on low heat for 3 hours and 15 minutes. Turn off the crockpot, stir the mixture, and serve hot.
