Slow cooker macaroni and cheese recipe

Adapted from Taste of Home

Serves about 8


  • 16 ounces macaroni, ziti or penne pasta
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 12 ounces evaporated milk
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup shredded white cheddar cheese
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/3 cup breadcrumbs


  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil and add pasta. Cook pasta until al dente (soft but still a bit firm), or about six minutes. Rinse and place into a lightly greased slow cooker.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mix butter, eggs, sharp cheddar cheese, evaporated milk, milk, cream and salt and pepper with a whisk. Pour mixture over the noodles. Set the slow cooker to low and cook for about 3-1/2 hours.
  3. Sprinkle mixture with additional one cup of white cheddar cheese and breadcrumbs. Cook another 20 to 30 minutes, or until cheese is melted and breadcrumbs are golden brown.
