    Go Canada Go!! I don’t remember ever saying “I can’t wait until 5 am” before.

    Sorry to hear you are under the weather. Speedy recovery to you! And you are so right – the crispy bits are the best part. :)

    This is kind of blowing my mind. I work on-call and have recently realized slow-cookers keep me alive. Thanks for sharing! Hope you feel better soon.

    I think I need to eat a whole batch of this.

    Thank you. Golden!
    Did you line your slow cooker pot with tin foil (picture looks like it, but not mentioned)? Is that for easier clean-up?

    This looks heavenly! I have yet to make mac’n’cheese myself, this looks like such a great simple recipe! Using my slow-cooker as well as we speak (or..as I type more like!) and cannot wait to have some philly turkey tacos :D Happy Sunday! x

    Yeah, it’s definitely cheese heavy! I used a whole block of cheddar.. you could experiment with less, but I’m afraid to :)

    Yes indeed, this was THE HIT of our party! People still bring it up to me. LOL.

    In my family you slather your neck with Vicks, wrap a wool sock around it and use a large safety pin to keep it there.

    Nope, no foil Kathy – I can’t see where it looks like it’s pictured? I know you can get slow cooker liners to ease clean-up, but I’ve never used them. I have a husband who scrubs!

    I got up at 4 to watch the gold medal game – everyone else got to sleep longer than BC! But it was worth it to see them win – though I would have liked Sweden to get one goal! (but not the US :) )
    I’s suffering from allergies – I’m allergic to tree pollen, and it normally starts in March, but this year it started in February – sneezing, my eyes and ears are itchy

    So I have sympathy for you being sick, Julie. Get well soon

    This sounds fantastic! Though my only concern would be mushy pasta (my pet peeve) by the time it’s done. Does it stay somewhat firm? Thanks!

    What size of slow cooker do you use?

    Thanks and best regards,

    Looks yummy, though I’d be tempted to get by with a little less cream cheese…what a great idea!

    Anja – I made mine in a 6 quart slow cooker, but it certainly didn’t fill it, so there’s no need to use such a big one!

    Unfortunately, The Mac and cheese turned out like glue. Was very disappointed. I followed the recipe exactly. It didn’t even cook three full hours. My daughter tried it and had the same results as me. Sorry! But worst Mac and cheese I have ever tried.

      I’m so sorry to hear it! I’ve made it several times now and always get asked for the recipe – I wonder if it makes a difference what slow cooker you make it in? I’ve done it in two different ones, and both have been successful. Sorry it didn’t work out for you!

    Can you use light cream cheese?

    Great and easy recipe. I added 3/4 teaspoon worcestershire sauce, 2 tbsp dehydrated onion and 1/2 tsp dry mustard. My entire family LOVES it. Can even be reheated as long as you add about a 1/2 cup milk.
