Tasty Thursday #8

This macaroni has the best flavor - so yummy.

Creamy Macaroni and Cheese

2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, cut into pieces
2 1/2 cups (about 10 ounces) 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 black pepper

Boil the macaroni in a 2 quart saucepan in plenty of water until tender, about 7 minutes. Drain. 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. Then add drained macaroni and stir again. Set the slow cooker on low setting and cook for 3 hours, stirring occasionally.

OK, the first time I tried this, dinner got delayed, and this was in the crockpot for more than three hours - BIG mistake! It got all curd-ly and wasn't creamy anymore, and kind of dry. When I did it the other night, I made sure not to over cook it. 2 hours is PLENTY of time. I think that even on the low setting, it just gets too hot. It was so much better the second time. The flavor is wonderful. I reheated the leftovers in the microwave with some extra milk, and it was great!


  1. I have been meaning to try this FOREVER. I'm gonna have to make it this weekend or next week! :)

  2. Oh...this sounds totally yummy! I'd never thought of making mac 'n cheese in the crockpot before. Definitely going to have to try this one!

  3. I can attest to the fact that this is a WONDERFUL recipe :) Very creamy. Great post.
