Do you know what sounds great on a rainy day? A nice, warm bowl of mac and cheese.
Mac and cheese is a great universal dish, it’s delicious for everyone: kids, adults, college students, etc. And so, here’s a great Crock-Pot recipe that I’ve done a few times, myself. The credit for this recipe goes to Mom’s with Crock-Pots, which already tells you it’s a great recipe.
So, all that you’ll need for this recipe is:
- 8 ounces of medium shell macaroni (one package, essentially)
- 2 teaspoons of olive oil
- 1 cup of evaporated milk (only buy one can, because it’s more than a cup)
- 1/2 cup of milk
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- 1/4 teaspoon of pepper
- 2 cups (8 ounces) of shredded, sharp cheddar cheese (which has health benefits, if you didn’t know!)
- 4 tablespoons of butter (melted)
- A Crock-Pot, of course!
Now, all you have to do is cook the macaroni like it says on the package. After you’re done cooking it, drain it and rinse it with warm water. Make sure it is drained really well, though. Next, use one to two tablespoons of the butter to grease the inside of the Crock-Pot. After you’ve done this, you can combine the macaroni with all of the other ingredients in the Crock-Pot, and be sure to mix it all together. Then, you’ll simply leave the Crock-Pot on low for about two to three hours, or until all the cheese is melted and it looks delicious.
And there you have it! Delicious mac and cheese.
