  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, cut into pieces
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 (10 3/4 oz) can condensed cheddar cheese soup
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 2 1/2 cups (about 10 oz) sharp cheddar cheese, grated
  • 2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni, (an 8 oz box isn't quite 2 cups)
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


Boil the macaroni in a 2 quart saucepan in plenty of water until tender, about 7 minutes. Drain. In a medium saucepan, mix butter and cheese. Stir until the cheese melts. In a slow cooker, combine cheese/butter mixture and add the sour cream, soup, salt, milk, mustard and pepper and stir well. Add eggs. Then add drained macaroni and stir again. Set the slow cooker on low setting and cook for 3 hours, stirring occasionally.

Oh, Paula... I love you, sweetie, buuut I must have done something terribly wrong. The flavor of this mac-n-cheese recipe was deeelish!, but the texture was almost like cheese grits. I was hoping for something more smooth and creamy. Perhaps the eggs were the problem?? Perhaps it was because I left it in the slow cooker for 4 hours when the recipe said to cook it for 3 hours. Regardless, I'd give this recipe a "5" on taste, but the consistency just wasn't what I was expecting. You're still my hero for your NYM's banana pudding! {{giggling!}}
