Macaroni and Cheese

First of all, this is not a dish you can put in the Slow Cooker in the morning and just leave all day.  It would be a big hot mess!  This dish needs constant attention.  I left for an hour and came home to what looked like an omelet on top of my Mac and Cheese!  Therefore, I then had Mac and Cheese with scrambled eggs!  LOL  While it still tasted really good, it didn't look all that appetizing.  My daughter was picking the scrambled eggs off her Mac and Cheese!  LOL  Oh boy!  I'm so determined to make this again and change a few things to make it happen.  The flavor was awesome!  I just need to work on a few things, so you will see me post Mac and Cheese again in the near future!

If you're brave and you would like to try this, here is the recipe I went by.  If it were me, next time I would leave out 1 egg, warm my milk before putting it in the Slow Cooker and stir every 20 minutes and make sure I cook it on low.  I had it on low thinking I had plenty of time for it to cook and after an hour and a half, I panicked it wouldn't be ready for dinner in time and cranked it to high.  I think that's how I ended up with scrambled eggs!  LOL

So, again, here's the recipe I used last night.......come back again and I'll attempt this one again soon!

Macaroni and Cheese

1/2 lb. Elbow Noodles
16 oz. Block Sharp Cheddar cheese (shredded)
4 cups milk
2 eggs, whipped
1/2 cup onions, chopped
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp. dried mustard

Put everything in the Slow Cooker, stir and set on LOW for 3-4 hours.
Stir every 20 minutes or so.  I do not recommend trying to cook this on HIGH!

Good luck!  If you try this and make changes, please post and let me know!  I'm telling you, beyond the "look" of this Mac and Cheese, it tasted AWESOME!
