This Creamy Crock Pot Mac ‘n Cheese is creamy (obviously), flavorful and has just a hint of sweet.
When I sat this before Michael and he took his first bites, it was almost comical. We all know that my husband loves his food. So when he eats something that is REALLY good, he gets REALLY excited. This Creamy Crock Pot Mac ‘n Cheese just so happened to be one of “those” recipes.
It went a little something like this, “Oh my goodness! This is SOOOOO good! Have you tried this yet?! This is seriously the best mac ‘n cheese I have ever had! This taste better than gourmet mac ‘n cheese!” etc. 🙂 (It is so cute…and funny…when he gets this excited about food. He is seriously like a little kid on Christmas morning.)
Something else that should be noted about this recipe. It called for shredded pasteurized processed cheese spread . I didn’t know they sold it shredded. I thought they meant to shred the block. I was skeptical, but thought I would try…umm, yea. Have you ever tried to shred a block of Velveeta (or Kroger’s Nice ‘n Cheesy in this house)? It ain’t happenin’ folks!
Later, I was talking to Cris and told her I had to alter the recipe because I had no idea how anyone could shred Velveeta. She had a good laugh as she explained I wasn’t supposed to shred a block, I was supposed to buy it already done. Ah well! It turned out wonderful anyway!
