Hi everyone! I just wanted to say that until I found another recipe on this site for Mac & Cheese that I like better, I had been making it pretty much like this recipe for many years. To make this recipe work well, use cooked macaroni instead of uncooked, and also use velveeta in the mix, then top with sharp chedder cheese and dot with butter. About three hours on low, and you have yourself a really good mac & cheese!


I have made this several times and modified it to how we like it. We leave the eggs out entirely, so it turns out creamy, not "set up" like custard. I used only 3 cups of cheese (it was PLENTY!), used skim milk and added garlic powder and green pepper hot sauce. Everyone at work loved it!!!


This recipe is getting a really bad rap! I've done it in the oven and I've done it in the slow cooker. Slow cooker is definitely better. I think for this recipe to be at its best, one needs to have one of those medium sized (3 quart?) crock pots. I have one of the 6 quart ones so I only let it cook for 2 hours. I did not add the eggs, I cut the cheese to three cups, I did not cook the macaroni first, and I used spicy paprika. My husband loved it, one half of my toddler twins loved it, my 4 year old woudln't eat it. I think it is a good side dish and will definitely make again.
