Homemade Mac N Cheese

OMG I am so behind on blogging about my life.  2 weekends ago, I invited a friend over for homemade Mac N Cheese.  I have never made this before and my friend is super picky, so I was really nervous!  But I found a great recipe on Recipe Zaar and went for it!

I haven't done a Tempt My Tummy Tuesday in a long time, but what great timing!  As I started writing this post, I remembered that awesome meme, and this post is just perfect for it!

Those are all of my ingredients..minus the Windex and juice of course ;)

2 uncooked cups of noodles...that's a lot!

Noodles "boiling" on the stove

Butter and cheese in another pot...not fun to wash!!!

Melted butter and cheese in the bottom of the crockpot...ewww lol

Everything mixed together...raw

The final result....yum!!!!


2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni
4 tablespoons butter, cut into pieces
2 1/2 cups about 10 ounces grated sharp cheddar cheese
3 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup sour cream
1 (10 3/4 ounce) can condensed cheddar cheese soup
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup whole milk
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

*Boil the macaroni in a 2 quart saucepan in plenty of water until tender, about 7 minutes. Drain.
*In a medium saucepan, mix butter and cheese. Stir until the cheese melts.
*In a slow cooker, combine cheese/butter mixture and add the eggs, sour cream, soup, salt, milk, mustard and pepper and stir well.
*Then add drained macaroni and stir again.
*Cook for 3 hours on low, stirring occasionally.

Now that looks delicious. With my daughters' dairy allergies, I am probably going to have to make this while they are at Grandmas and keep it hush, hush. Aiyana LOVES mac n cheese.

Nothing says comfort food more than man n cheese. I love to make it with special ingreidents such as gouda cheese. Come join me for Crock Pot WEdnesday and the February giveaway.
