Creamy Crock Pot Mac and Cheese

by DrDan at 101 Cooking for Two August-14-2012

A creamy tasty mac and cheese that is slow cooker simple. Good enough to make my in house mac and cheese expert go back for seconds.


  • 2 cups Pasta
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 1/2 cup shredded cheese (your choice)
  • 4 T butter
  • 1 10 3/4 oz can cheddar cheese soup
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1/2 t pepper
  • 1/2 t dry mustard
  • optional 1/4 t Cayenne pepper


1) Start with a pan of hot water over high heat. Once the water is boiling add 2 cups (about 8 oz) and cook for about 2/3 of the minimum time. Mine said 9 minutes so I cooked for 6 minutes.

2) Combine in a medium crock pot: 1 cup milk, 1/2 cup sour cream, 2 1/2 cups cheese ( I used sharp cheddar and and a little cojack. Use what you want/have), 4 T butter cut into several pieces, 1/2 t salt, pepper and dry mustard and one can (10 3/4 oz) cheddar cheese soup. Option of 1/4 t Cayenne pepper.

3) Drain the pasta well and combine in the slow cooker. Mix well. Turn on low.

4) Stir the pot about 20 minutes into cooking when the butter is melted. Mix very well. Stir again several more times. Just a light stir is good.

5) It's done when you are getting some browned cheese on the side of the pot and some light browning of some of the pasta on the edge. About 2 hours.
