Easy Cheesy Crock Pot Mac & Cheese

crock pot mac

When it comes to holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas there’s two things I always make in mass quantities. Mac & Cheese and puppy chow. Its no secret that I love mac & cheese. Not just me but my whole family. So when these fall holidays roll around its all I crave!

My great grandmother makes an amazing baked mac & cheese that I love but its very time consuming. After years of trial and error I finally created the perfect crock pot mac & cheese. Not only is it incredibly creamy and cheesy, in can be made with the smallest of efforts.

crock pot macWhat’s my secret ingredient? Besides using a ridiculous amount of different cheeses, its using Stella® Cheese. Stella cheeses are flavorful and combine old world craftsmanship with rich dairy heritage, dating back to 1923. From shredded to crumbled and sharp to sweet, the wide range of Stella cheese products will infuse your meals with a hint of romantic flavor that’s sure to wow your guests.

Let me fill you in on some tips and tricks before we get started. When purchasing your cheese, its better to buy block cheese then shred it. If you don’t have time to shred then pre-shredded will work just fine. After the mac & cheese is cooked don’t keep the crock pot on warm or you will burn it. I’m personally a fan of slightly burnt edges on my mac & cheese so I purposely burn mine though. If you’re in a time crunch you can bump the cook time up to just over an hour if you cook on high and stir every 20 minutes or so.

    I’ve always been scared to try pasta in the slowcooker. THIS though makes me very very curious because I have some definite macaroni and cheese lovers in the house.
