Today’s summer meal is one made in a slow cooker. I recently started watching Trisha Yearwood’s new cooking show on the Food Network – Trisha’s Southern Kitchen. I have loved her cookbooks so I knew I would love her show. On one episode, she had a recipe for slow cooker mac and cheese. I had to give it a try.
The slow cooker mac and cheese turns out different than your regular stove top version. Instead of it having a creaming coating of cheese, you get noodles surrounded by pockets of cheesy goodness. It was delish and a breeze to just toss in the slow cooker. You can always bake this in the oven if you would prefer but it sure is nice to let it cook for 3 hours in the slow cooker.
