Crock Pot Macaroni and Cheese

It is hard to live in a house with 5 kids and not have Macaroni and Cheese way too often. I need to keep dinner exciting, and figure out something different every night. I love cooking in the slow cooker and I am on a mission to see how many different meals I can master. As usual, the first few times I made this it was not so great, nothing special and just a little off. It is hard for me to find recipes that are big enough to feed our family and still have food left over for all the kids to have lunch the next day. I decided to go big with this one and try to see if I could make a dish big enough for 12-14 servings.

    Thanks Rose! I have a feeling that in a few years when I end up with a crew of teenage boys, this will be a side dish, lol.

    This looks awesome. You can’t beat both crock pot and freezer cooking at the same time. Although with this crew we may just eat the whole thing in one meal.

    Hi there! Thanks for trying to link up – LinkyTools, who hosts the links, has been having server issues so I think it must have been down when you stopped by. Feel free to come back and link up if you want! I love homemade mac & cheese – your version sounds delicious! I bet the sour cream makes it so nice and creamy.

    Let me know how you like it! You could always make the whole thing and then put half of it in the freezer! I love freezer cooking 🙂

    I’m sooooo trying this! I’ll have to halve for sure, just so the leftovers don’t kill us! 😉
