Ingredients

  • 2 cups dry elbow macaroni
  • 1 12 oz can evaporated milk
  • 1 10 ¾ oz can cheddar cheese soup
  • 8 oz sour cream Full fat works best
  • ½ cup butter melted
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • ¼-1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper adjust to taste
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 ½ cups of triple cheddar cheese divided

Instructions

  • Set your slow cooker on the low setting, and spray the inside with cooking spray.
  • Parboil the macaroni in salted water for 6 minutes.
  • While the macaroni is cooking, in a small mixing bowl, whisk together, the melted butter, evaporated milk, cheddar cheese soup, sour cream, eggs and seasonings. Whisk until fully combined.
  • After cooking the macaroni for 6 minutes, drain well. Add to the slow cooker
  • Pour the cheese sauce over the macaroni along with 3 cups of shredded triple cheddar cheese.
  • Stir all of the ingredients together until the macaroni is coated and the sauce is evenly distributed.
  • Cover and cook on low for 2 hours. After 2 hours, remove the lid and check the middle for doneness. If needed, add additional cooking time in 20-30 minute increments or until the macaroni is tender. (Time may vary slightly depending on how your slow cooker cooks)
  • Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top. Replace the lid and continue to cook for an additional 15 minutes to allow the cheese to melt.
  • Keep warm until serving.

Notes

To make in a conventional oven:  Cook the macaroni until al dente on top of the stove, then mix together with 3 cups of shredded cheese and the combined sauce. Pour into a buttered 12 x 8 inch baking dish and top with the remaining cheese. Dot the top with butter. Bake at 350°F for 40 minutes until bubbly and golden.
