    slow cooker mac and cheese

    I have just found a wonderful new recipe without having to cook the macaroni first. Here it is:

    1 cup dry macaroni
    3-4 tbsp butter
    8-12 oz shredded cheese
    1 quart of millk
    salt and pepper to taste

    Just put all of the above in a slow cooker and cook on high until soft and creamy. Stir several times to avoid sticking together and to the bottom. My rice cooker is a slow cooker and that's what I cooked mine in. It took about 2 hours. I also made this and added about 1 cup of chopped cooked ham. Once I added some dried minced onion. I made the milk from instant powered non-fat milk and it was great. Hope you like it.

    That sounds great and it doesn't make a whole lot, like most things that go in the slow cookers. Wonder if it will fit in those new small ones that everyone got for Christmas last year.
    Blessed are the quilters, for they are the piecemakers.
