Uncle Jack's Mac-And-Cheese

Another great meal from my crockpot.  Today's recipe is a classic comfort food enjoyed by almost everyone; Mac-And-Cheese.   I just love this comfort food.  Pasta in a delicious creamy cheese sauce with the sauce coating the pasta in every delicious bite.  Mmm wonderful.

This Mac-And-Cheese recipe is cooked in a crockpot.  I combined all of the ingredients - elbow macaroni, heavy cream, evaporated milk, eggs, butter, salt, pepper, and cheddar cheese in a large bowl.  I sprayed my crock lightly with some cooking spray and then I poured the ingredients into the crock.  Topped the macaroni with the reserved cheese and set the crockpot on high for 3 hours.  I then reduced the crockpot to low for 1 hour.

The Mac-And- Cheese was done:)  It was rich and creamy but the cheese sauce was not too runny.  The crust on the sides of the pasta was slightly chewy but not tough.  All said this was a delicious dinner or side for your family and friends.  This recipe makes 8-10 servings.
