O.k., I've seen this made on t.v. and it looks delicious. However, I wonder if I can make it in my crockpot. Do you think this recipe is modifyable? Take a look below and let me know. OR if you have any suggestions for making cheesey mac and cheese in a crockpot, please share. I need to gather my ingredients for a pitch in this Sunday. Thanks all((Please be kind, as this is my first visit to this forum)). I know, I can do a searh, but i really don't have time right now, as I'm supposed to be getting our dinner ready. Thanks all!

Recipe Summary
Difficulty: Easy
Prep Time: 10 minutes

Once you have the macaroni cooked and drained, place in a large bowl and while still hot and add the cheddar. In a separate bowl, combine the remaining ingredients and add to the macaroni mixture. Pour macaroni mixture into a casserole dish and bake for 30 to 45 minutes. Top with additional cheese if desired.

I was going to say yes, until I saw the eggs. I've never made anything with eggs in my crock pot.

Would you have time to make it in the oven, then keep it warm in the crockpot?

I have no idea how, I have made a lot of stuff in my crock pot, but Mac and Cheese is stovetop and oven for me...

I'm not sure how things would hold up. This is for a church pot luck after our main worship service. So, I'd have to bake it early in the am. and then have it sit for at least a couple hours before the dish is consumed. :(

:surfweb: O.k., I think its time to check out this great forum and search for other crock pot recipes. Thanks, I look forward to running into your other posts on this forum.
