Macaroni and cheese is a staple American dish. We have probably all tried it before. However, did you know that there is a far better way to make it than what you are probably used to? Enter the ‘slow cooker’ version of this dish. It is simple to make too. Have a look at this video:
- 1lb macaroni
- 2 cups of whole milk
- 1 can evaporated milk
- Salt, to taste
- 2 tablespoons of butter
- 3 cups of cheddar cheese, grated.
How to make:
- Add everything to your slow cooker and mix well.
- Cook on the lowest setting for 1.5 hours.
- Stir after 30 minutes. Check the macaroni after a further 1.25 hours to make sure that it is cooked well. It may take slightly longer.
Expert Tip: Slow cookers vary so the time it takes for your crockpot to cook the macaroni might be different. The first time we made this, we were using an older crockpot that only had a knob to turn to either high or low. Even on low, the crockpot got way too hot and the milk curdled and the macaroni became mushy. When we switched to a new crockpot with multiple settings and cooked it on the lowest, stirring after 30 minutes and checking on it periodically, we avoided both pitfalls and ended up with creamy, cheesy macaroni!
