Alright ya’ll. Jason has been perfecting his very own Crock Pot Mac and Cheese Recipe for you!
I probably shouldn’t admit this, but, we eat our fair share of Macaroni & Cheese. I have several recipes that I make:
- Stove Top Mac and Cheese – This is a smaller scale recipe and a perfect Side Dish recipe to go along side our Dinners.
- Homemade Macaroni and Cheese – For when I have guests coming over or when J needs a little extra special mac n cheese recipe!
When we first began removing food dyes from our diet I would search the ingredients on the side of the boxed mac n cheese in the grocery stores. Everything contained Yellow40. Now at the time I didn’t realize it, but, TT isn’t necessarily sensitive to yellow, it’s more the blue and red dyes. So I will admit now that the large food companies are beginning to remove these from their ingredients they may be welcome back into my house. Until then….
Here’s a little video Jas made to show you how easy this Crock Pot Mac and Cheese recipe truly is:
I love Macaroni and Cheese because it’s just one of those comfort foods that makes the soul feel good. We didn’t eat a lot of Mac N Cheese growing up and I began eating it when Jas and I bought our first house years ago. We visit a few local establishments around Cincinnati and have fallen in love with quite a few of them, especially the Mac N Cheese from Jeff Ruby’s Restaurants. Sometimes there are recipes that I can recreate at home, and some that I just haven’t quite nailed yet.
For instance I’ve pretty much nailed the Chicken Cajun Pasta Recipe from TGI Friday’s. We no longer have one locally, so I’ve been making it quite a bit.
I have also perfected the Hershey Sundae Pie recipe from Burger King and Edward’s Pie.

Now that I’ve been laid up and recovering from surgery Jason has been enjoying cooking. He said that he doesn’t, but, he truly has enjoyed it! On Thanksgiving he made this Crock Pot Mac and Cheese recipe and has made it several times since. It’s a great recipe to make to bring to a party or one that stays warm and allows guests to serve themselves on a buffet.
If you enjoy a creamier type of mac n cheese you’ll want to add little extra milk. I’d start with a cup at a time. You can always add more milk toward the end to achieve your creaminess.
