Macaroni & Cheese can be baked in the oven, the Crock Pot, or on the stovetop! Made extra creamy with eggs, cream cheese, and 2 oher cheeses!



Ingredients


  • 2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni
  • 1/4 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • 4 large eggs beaten
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper optional
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 oz. cheddar cheese grated
  • 8 oz. American cheese, cut into cubes Velveeta packaged slices work well
  • 4 oz. cream cheese softened


Instructions

Crock Pot Method:

  • Note: The butter, half and half, sour cream, and cheeses should be close to room temperature prior to being added to the macaroni.

  • Cook the macaroni for 1-2 minutes less than instructed on package so the macaroni doesn't become mushy.

  • Drain the macaroni and return it to the warm pot you boiled it in. Add all remaining ingredients. Use a silicone spatula to gently stir until well-combined.

  • Add the macaroni to the Crock Pot. Heat on low for 2-3 hours hours, then switch to warm, and serve! Stir occasionally as it cooks if you're able.


Oven Method:

  • Note: The butter, half and half, sour cream, and cheeses should be close to room temperature prior to being added to the macaroni.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cook the macaroni for 9 minutes.

  • Drain the macaroni and return it to the warm pot you boiled it in. Add all remaining ingredients. Use a silicone spatula to gently stir until well-combined.

  • Add the macaroni to a greased 13 x 9 baking dish.

  • Bake, uncovered, for 40-45 minutes, until hot and bubbling.
  • Let it stand for 10 minutes prior to serving.


Recipe Notes

  • Make-Ahead Method For Baked OR Crock Pot Mac and Cheese:
  • Cook the Pasta no more than Al Dente.
  • Immediately rinse the cooked pasta with cold water to halt the cooking process and rid it of extra starch.

  • Combine the cooled macaroni and sauce.
  • Store in the fridge for up to two days, covered.
