Crock Pot Mac and Cheese with Broccoli

My kids love Mac n’ Cheese.  I love the fresh baked, hot out of the oven, home made kind.  I was trying to find a recipe for Mac n’ Cheese in the Crock Pot and decided to try this one…

Crock Pot Mac n’ Cheese with Broccoli
Ingredients to make crock pot mac and cheese with broccoli:
  • Cooking spray
  • 24oz Uncooked Macaroni
  • 2 tablespoons Vegetable Oil
  • 4 cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 2 cups Shredded Mexican Cheese Mix
  • 12 oz can of Evaporated Milk
  • 1 can of  Cheddar Cheese Soup
  • 14 oz Frozen Chopped Broccoli
  • 3 cups Milk
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • 1 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
To make the crock pot mac and cheese, follow these steps:
  1. Spray the inside of the crock pot with cooking spray. 
  2. Pour the uncooked macaroni and oil into the crock pot and stir until the pasta is covered. 
  3. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until well mixed.
  4. Turn the Crock Pot on low heat and let cook for 3 hrs. 
I would recommend stirring every now and then.  It looks really runny at first but after awhile it will start to thicken.  I used 3 cups of milk but I think I would try a little more next time.  Mine was on low heat for several hours after the first 3 and got really soft.  The babies loved it!


It ended up being pretty tasty!  I would recommend using a thicker noodle, maybe a spiral noodle or something with a little more texture (the elbow macaroni got soft fast). 
Hope you enjoy!
