Our Family Best Crockpot Creamy Mac & Cheese

Norma DeRemer


A nurse gave me this recipe when I worked in our County Nursing home more than 30 years ago and it still is my family, friends favorite. When ever the grandchildren tell me that they are going to be at my house for a visit; I make sure I have my crock pot full of this mac & cheese or I really get in trouble if I don't. One of my grandaughters came over the other day and ask if she could take home the leftovers. I got a call from her later telling me that she ate it all before she got home. LOL
