How To Make Crockpot Mac and Cheese

Add all of the ingredients into your crockpot. Set on low and cook for up to 2½ hours or until it looks like mac ‘n’ cheese. Stir after two hours to check that the recipe is done.

Step 2:

The sauce may be thick and cheesy so you might want to add in some more cooked macaroni and milk to even it out. Then put the setting on “Keep Warm” until ready to serve.


You can use cooked noodles, just decrease the cooking time to 1½ – 2 hours

If you desire more flavor in your mac n cheese, you can add some mustard and garlic to this recipe and adjust to your taste.

Pre-shredded cheese does not work well in this recipe. It contains an anti-caking agent that can make this recipe gritty. Better to get whole cheese and shred it yourself.

Slow cookers can vary from one another, While some may cook slow, others may be faster. SO you may have to adjust the time for your slow cooker and set it to warm if your mac n cheese gets done earlier than expected.
