Slow Cooker Mac and Cheese

I’ve never had success with making mac and cheese.  What is wrong  with me?  Can it really be so hard?

It always was hard…until I made mac and cheese with a slow cooker.

Recently, we ate the mac and cheese with Millie’s Hamburger Steaks and My Favorite, Fabulous, Fast and Fool-Proof Slaw (and French bread because HH has to have his bread).

Completely delicious.

This mac and cheese is very easy.  All you do is cook the noodles first.

Cooking Macaroni

While the macaroni cooks, mix the other ingredients in a greased slow cooker.

    It looks extra yummy!
    As I was reading the ingredients I started laughing…..the only ones I can have are the mustard and the salt. hahaha! But that is ok. I’d rather not eat something super duper yummy and go backwards in my feeling good progress. 🙂

      Yes, please don’t reverse your progress! I would never want to make you sick. With all your sensitivities, I think I found one that isn’t suitable for any of your needed substitutions. I hope you have a great weekend planned!

    Hi Kim, I told you I would let you know how things went, well thanks to you, for the first time in my life I was able to make the word best Mac & Cheese. So readers/followers, please make Kim’s Mac and cheese. Not only is it easy to make, it’s also turns out tasting like the best M & C you will ever make from scratch. Thank you, thank you Kim.
