Amazing Crock Pot Mac & Cheese

I can't tell you how excited I was when I was making this dish!!!

I was just hungry for it I spose, and couldn't keep my nose out of the crockpot!

It's a wonder it ever finished cooking!

I just knew I'd have to try it when I saw the recipe at Lark's Country Heart

I'm always a sucker for anything cheesey, especially when it includes cream cheese! This is definitely creamy dreamy...

It will be made and enjoyed in my kitchen again...and again.



AMAZING CROCKPOT MAC 'N' CHEESE

1 - 16 ozs. pkg. of macaroni
20 ozs. sharp cheddar, or your choice, shredded
1 - 8 ozs. cream cheese, cubed
1/2 stick of butter or margarine, melted
2 eggs
2 c. milk (I used a little less - you can always add more later)
salt & pepper to taste

First boil pasta until it is half done, about 7 - 8 minutes.
Drain; pour into lightly sprayed crockpot. Add shredded cheese and cream cheese to pasta. (Lark does NOT recommend using pre-shredded - it makes the sauce grainy)

In bowl, combine eggs, milk, salt & pepper; beat well. Add (cooled) melted margarine to egg mixture and blend well. Pour mixture over cheese and pasta.  Stir until all is blended.  Cook on low heat for 2 hrs. stirring occasionally.

Enjoy a wonderful weekend!
