Easy Slow Cooker Mac and Cheese!

Macaroni & Cheese always makes the list for Top 10 American Favorites Foods. Kids love it, adults love it and it works for everything from weddings to BBQs.  Although I love it, and want add to to many of my party menus, oven space often keeps me from serving it. So when I found this recipe on the Hamilton Beach site, I was thrilled. Now, not only can I make it for a weeknight dinner, while I’m at work all day, I can serve it for the holidays when my oven is overflowing!

  1. Really fantastic recipe – so easy to make and just delicious. I made this in my 5 quart crock pot and it was done in 2.5 hours (low) It was really creamy and delicious (I did leave out the cayenne)
