Easy Crockpot Mac&Cheese

I am really into using our crock-pot these days.

Since Garrett and I have completely opposite schedules, I work at 5:30 am and get home around 10:30am and he usually isn't home until 6:30 or later, a good old fashioned crock-pot meal is nice! I can get it going when I get home and it'll be ready when he walks in. The best part is, I barely have to do anything but the meal comes out as if I had slaved in the kitchen for hours. Score! : )

Last week I shared a crock-pot BBQ Chicken recipe. It was delicious and really great with this mac&cheese recipe I am posting today. Throw in some mashed potatoes and it would be the best comfort food meal ever!

What you need:

1 1/2 Cups Milk
1 12oz. Can Evaporated Milk
1/4 Cup Unsalted Butter, Melted and Cooled
3 Eggs
3 Cups Shredded Cheese
1/2 Lb Elbow Macaroni, Slightly Cooked and Drained ( Cook macaroni for about five minutes until it is tender but not all the way cooked)
Salt and Pepper to Taste

What to do:

Spray the inside of your crock-pot with cooking spray. Combine milk, evaporated milk, eggs, butter and salt in the crock-pot and mix until smooth. 

Add the shredded cheese and macaroni. Sprinkle with black pepper. Stir to coat with previous mixture.

Sprinkle some grated cheese on top as well for a nice cheesy topping! Cover and cook on high for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes is up, reduce to low and cook for 2 to 2 1/2 hours.

So, I want to apologize for the pictures I am about to add. If you know me you know that I usually take a TON of pictures. Well, this one time I took only about five pictures. And none of them turned out too great. These two were the best I had! 



Just imagine this displayed on a really cute dish next to some BBQ Chicken and you will have the mental picture of what I wanted my pictures to look like! : )

Hope everyone is having a great week! I am already ready for the weekend. And the next Bachelor episode. Even though Ben is making me a little mad!

 Is anyone else watching this season??
