My beautiful vintage Magic Chef ovens have gone on to oven heaven, and I'm waiting for the new models I ordered to arrive. So, with no oven I have had 3 different pot luck occasions I needed a good slow cooker dish. I came up with this for the first, and it was such a hit, I've repeated twice already, and am making it my go to mac n cheese.

Ingredients

2 lb
shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided
1 can(s)
evaporated milk
2 can(s)
use empty evaporated milk can and measure 2 more cans of milk
8 oz
queso cheese, cubed about 1/2" (i use velvetta queso)
2 large
eggs
1/4 tsp
ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp
ground mustard
1 tsp
sea salt
2-4 dash(es)
ground red pepper (to taste)
4 oz
salted butter, cut into cubes.
generous grinds of black peppercorns

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Bring a large kettle to a rolling boil with very well salted water. Stir in the macaroni, and cook according to package directions until only al dente. If you cook longer the mac n cheese will be mushy.
2
Meanwhile, cube the queso cheese into about 1/2" pieces. Take 1/2 Cup of the cheddar aside to sprinkle on top before cooking.
3
In medium mixing bowl mix the evaporated milk with two cans of regular milk. Add the beaten eggs and stir well; add the nutmeg, ground mustard, red pepper and salt and pepper. Stir all well to combine.
4
As soon as you drain the pasta, return to the pot, and stir in the butter; add buttered pasta to the milk, egg and seasoning mixture; Stir in all but 1/2 C of the cheddar cheese, and the queso cheese. Stir well and place into a very well greased slow cooker. I prefer to use the slow cooker liners!!!
5
Sprinkle in the reserved cheddar cheese over the top, and sprinkle paprika over the top. (I am generous with the paprika. Cook on Low setting of your crock pot for 2-1/2 to 3 hours. This will keep warm and not separate for hours.
