Trisha Yearwood Crockpot Mac & Cheese

Credit: Home Cooking with Trisha Yearwood
Serves 12

8 ounces elbow macaroni, cooked (I didn't cook mine, just threw it in with everything else)
1 12 ounce can evaporated milk
1 1/2 cups whole milk
2 large eggs, beaten
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted
1 teaspoon salt
dash of pepper
2 10 ounce bricks sharp cheddar cheese, grated (about 5 cups)
dash of paprika

In a large 4-quart crockpot sprayed with cooking spray, mix the macaroni, milks, eggs, butter, salt, pepper, and all but 1/2 cup of the grated cheese.

Sprinkle the reserved cheese over the top of the mixture and then sprinkle with paprika. Cook on low heat for 3 hours and 15 minutes.

Turn off the crockpot, stir the mixture, and serve hot.

We love mac and cheese - this sounds like a good one. I like that you didn't have to cook the noodles first - bonus!

Mac and Cheese has always been a huge comfort food for me as long as I can remember. I've captured this so I can use it on those super busy days and still have a hot homemade meal ready to go.

If you get a chance, stop by and participate in some of my giveaways, most of them end this weekend! I'd love to have you join!
