Slow-Cooker Saturday

Slow Cooking Macaroni and Cheese

So easy on a warm summer day. Throw it in stir once or twice during cooking and Tah-Dah...homemade mac and cheese that kids will love.

3 cups almost cooked macaroni
1 1/2 Tbl. melted butter
3 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
2 cups evaporated milk
1/4 cup cooked and crumbled bacon
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 t. salt
1/4 t. fine ground pepper

Toss macaroni with butter in a large bowl. Combine remaining ingredients and then poor into slow cooker. Keep covered and cook about 2 1/2 hours. Stir a couple of times during cooking. **You can used processed cheese for this as well and you may prefer sauteing the onion while cooking the bacon. (I cheat and used already cooked REAL bacon pieces).

This recipe is my adaptation from this slow cooking recipe book. A great recipe to serve for a playdate luncheon, take to a friend in need or as a side dish to your neighborhood bbq. Happy Cooking Y'all!
