    Crock Pot Mac & Cheese

    This is a crock-pot variation of classic baked macaroni & cheese. Notes to make it the classic crunchy topped type follow.

    1 lb dried pasta, usually elbows
    1lb sharp cheddar cheese, in 1/2 inch cubes
    4 cups milk
    2-3 eggs
    1/2 tsp garlic powder(optional)
    1/4 tsp paprika (optional)
    salt/pepper to taste

    Cook the pasta to the package directions. We use the shortest time on the range, e.g. If the package says 9-12 minutes, use 9 min.

    While the pasta boils, beat the eggs in a bowl, add the milk, garlic powder, salt & pepper.

    Drain & rinse the cooked pasta well in cool water. Spray your crock-pot with nonstick spray. Pour about 1/3 of the pasta into the pot, layer in 1/3 of cheese cubes. Repeat, finishing with cheese. Pour milk mixture in. Sprinkle paprika over it, if desired.

    Cook on low for about 4 hours. When done, pulling a hole deep in the casserole will show no liquid. Timing depends on your pot.

    For classic baked version, mix and assemble as above in a casserole dish. The more shallow the dish, the more crunchy topping you'll get and the more quickly it cooks, to an extent. Bake at 350 deg. for about an hour.
