Crock Pot Macaroni & Cheese

At all family gatherings I am always asked to bring the macaroni and cheese. Seriously, I think they would not allow me to come if I didn't have a BIG pan of it in tow. So you can imagine I make it a lot!

Crock Pot Macaroni & Cheese recipe that is creamy and cheesy and perfect for holiday meals or any weeknight.

My traditional Macaroni & Cheese recipe requires making a bechamel sauce and then baking it in the oven. We do love it so but sometimes I just need a helping hand when the family is begging me to make it.

I have made several slow cooker macaroni and cheese recipes trying to get it just right. With each one, there was just something that just didn't hit it out of the park for me.

Because this is made in the crock pot it frees up oven and stove space during holiday meals. But its not just for holidays, summer BBQ's and weeknight meals are so much easier when you have a recipe like this one.
