My Mac and Cheese Recipe- Two Ways!

Anyone who knows me know I love macaroni and cheese. Its one of my favorite things to make. My grandma made it for me all the time when I was a kid. One day I wanted to make it but did not have the recipe and I called my mom. She had my late grandmothers recipe and was glad to share it with me. I love it so much that I even messed with it and made a perfect crock pot recipe to go with it. I hope you enjoy it!


1-12 to 13 oz can of evaporated milk

1 ½ of milk

1 stick of butter

2 bags of shredded cheese (whatever kind you wish. I like sharp cheddar)

Salt and Pepper

16 oz box of elbow pasta

For Oven

  1.  Same instructions as the Crock pot but instead of one can of evaporated milk you will use two cans and no regular milk
  2. Cook for 20 minutes or until brown on top on 320 degrees

For Crock pot

  1. Cook pasta as directed on box (Salt the water while you boil elbows for better taste.)
  2. Pour milk and evaporated milk can in Crock pot
  3. Pour half of pasta in Crock pot and cover with one bag of cheese and salt to taste.
  4. Repeat step 3
  5. Cut stick of butter in to 5 squares and put on in the center and two on both ends of the Crock pot
  6. Cover and put on low and let it cook for 2 to 3 hours.

For a little kick add a few pinches of ground mustard for and extra tangy taste!
