Easy Macaroni and Cheese
My grandma cut out this easy Macaroni and Cheese in the crockpot recipe from the newspaper years ago. She decided to make it for my dad when he visited her and bam!… He was hooked. Of course the recipe was shared and this past Sunday I made it again for our church picnic. It is the CREAMIEST Macaroni and Cheese. And it’s also the easiest thing ever to make for a potluck. I love recipes like this because I know Macaroni and Cheese is a big hit with kids, yet this recipe is so good the adults will be asking for more!
This is all you need to make this amazing meal – or side. Because really, it could be either. Which brings me to my question. Yesterday for our church picnic we were to bring a main dish and a dessert. The dessert was easy but I didn’t know if Macaroni and Cheese counted as a main dish. My husband said yes. I thought, no. But my mom had an extra half of Velveeta, so it became a main dish. And really, I’m now thinking it is. Do I think too much into these things? What do you think? Let me know in the comments.
Anyways, to make this EASY Macaroni and Cheese Recipe
16 oz Macaroni (cooked)
4 TB Olive Oil
2 Cans (12 oz each) Evaporated Milk
2 Cups Milk
2 tsp Salt
4 Cups Cheddar Cheese
2 Cups Velveeta Cheese (cut into 1 inch squares)
4 TB Melted Butter
Pour in the evaporated milk, milk and then the rest of the ingredients. Stir well. Place the lid onto the crock pot and turn it on low. Let it go for an hour, stir and then it cook for another hour. In just those two hours, you’ll have one of the best sides – or main dishes – your family has ever had. Seriously, we love this recipe.

My slow cooker which I’ve owned for 6 months took only 2 hours to make this macaroni and cheese. If you have an older slow cooker, it may take longer.
If the macaroni and cheese is complete before your guests arrive, you can leave the slow cooker on warm.
Use a slow cooker bag for easier clean up.
