Michelle's Mac-n-Cheese

Just when you thought it was safe to put that crock pot away - DON'T! This is a great summer BBQ dish that the kids will be sure to enjoy. You can fix it - forget it - and get on with the grilling! This is another wonderful dish from my dear friend Michelle - she is certainly helping me out here while I get over my "Summer Blogging Blues". It is hard to get motivated to blog when the sky is sunny, the children want to play, and I do too!

Michelle's Crock pot Mac and cheese

1 lb elbow macaroni
4 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup milk
1 can evaporated milk 12 oz size
1 stick of butter

Cook macaroni in salted boiling water on stove until slightly al dente, drain DO NOT RINSE, and pour into crock pot with stick of butter. Stir to coat. Pour in milk and evaporated milk. Stir in cheese. Turn crock pot to high for 30 minutes, mixing once. Turn crock pot to low and cook for 1-2 hours mixing 1-2 times. Mix before serving.

Feeds 10. OR in my house feeds 5!!!!

I use my crockpot throughout the summer because it doesn't heat the house the way stove top or oven does.

And mac and cheese is an all time favorite that usually makes its way to our table only in the fall and winter, so thanks for sharing:)

Good idea with the crock. Better than heating up the house.
