Slow Cooker Mac-n-Cheese

Slow Cooker Mac-n-Cheese

If your kids are like mine, macaroni and cheese is an all-time favorite meal. I do believe that my younger children would live on peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches, hot dogs, and mac-n-cheese, if left to their own devices.

Thankfully macaroni and cheese is a quick and easy meal to make, and this slow cooker version makes it even simpler. It is delicious and satisfying, even for adult appetites.

Slow Cooker Mac-n-Cheese


  • 1 lb. macaroni
  • 5 T. margarine
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 2 1/2 c. milk
  • 1 can condensed cheddar cheese soup undiluted
  • 1 lb. shredded colby or cheddar cheese
  • 1 tsp. salt


  • Cook macaroni according to package directions; drain;
  • Add margarine and stir until melted; transfer to 5-quart slow cooker.
  • Combine remaining ingredients; pour over macaroni mixture and stir until combined.
  • Cook on low for about 4 hours, stirring once or twice during cooking time.
