Macaroni and cheese. It's the ultimate comfort food, isn't it? You know what's not comforting about it? Spending the time making it. While there are really just two components to this dish - macaroni and cheese - they need to be prepared perfectly, and separately, before coming together to bake in the oven. BUT. With just a few simple ingredients, you can prepare an ooey gooey mac and cheese in your slow cooker and, if you didn't know better, swear it had just come out of the oven.
Pro tip: To make this macaroni and cheese a heartier meal, or just put your own spin on it, add cooked ham or chicken, bell peppers, mushrooms, or anything else you think would be delicious with noodles and a rich cream sauce!
Note: All slow cookers are a little bit different in temperature and calibration. This recipe was tested in Cooktop Cove's Test Kitchen using this slow cooker, which is available for purchase here.
