The ingredients are in the crock pot and will be ready in a few hours. I was thinking it sounded good and have never had it made in the crock pot and I have never used many of these ingredients in Mac and cheese.

I am always up for trying something new!!!

1 stick of butter
3 cups sharp (New York Sharp) cheddar cheese
1 12 oz can evaporated milk
1 ½ cups homogenized milk (whole is best)
2 eggs
salt
pepper

Grease crock pot or spray with Pam. Cook macaroni in salted water and drain. Pour into crock pot. While still hot, add butter and cheese and stir. Add homogenized milk and stir. Beat eggs and add evaporated milk to the eggs. Add this to macaroni mixture. Can sprinkle top with grated cheese.

Cook on low for three hours. DO NOT open lid during this time.

This was given to me by one of the members of McCarter Presbyterian Church (PCUSA) in Greenville, SC where I was married.

My daughter ADORES this recipe.

OK. I don't think I will ever be making macaroni and cheese any other way than the way I just made it. That stuff was soooo good!

This is my favorite home-made Mac n' Cheese recipe and its also the easiest -

you boil the mac in the milk, add salt, paprika and dijon mustard, then add shredded sharp cheddar.

To. Die. For.

Default Macaroni and cheese.....

For some reason, I've had a craving for mac 'n cheese, homemade variety.

Ours was always stovetop, and never baked. Almost every recipe I find online is baked in the oven with a crumb topping.

My mom made it by precooking and draining the macaroni, then making a cheddar cheese sauce. The macaroni was added to the cheese sauce, and heated through before being dished out to take to the table.

For those who grew up on mac 'n cheese, how was it made in your family? Seems like the way we had it wasn't very common--like our fried chicken with the skin removed before frying.

Now I'm getting homesick and hungry......

Fish stick, macaroni and cheese on the stove homemade and not out of a box and peas
Meatloaf, mashed potatoes and gracy with corn and bread and butter
Ham & Beans with cornbread
Fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, corn, bread and butter
Green beans and potatoes with a bit of ham or hamhock cooked with it
Spaghetti and garlic bread

Nothing ever out of a box, always homemade.

We had both. Stove top macaroni-and-cheese was more for regular meals, and the baked version (which is a completely different dish) was for big dinners.

I hate M&C with bread crumbs on top. Who on earth came up with such an idea?
