Welcome to this step-by-step tutorial on how to make delicious Crock Pot Mac and Cheese. If you’re a fan of this classic comfort food, you’ll love the convenience of using a slow cooker to create a creamy and cheesy dish that will satisfy your cravings. So let’s get started!


  • 2 cups elbow macaroni
  • 4 cups shredded cheese (cheddar, mozzarella, or a mix)
  • 1 can evaporated milk
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Breadcrumbs (optional)


Step 1: Cook the Macaroni:

In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook the elbow macaroni according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain well.

Step 2: Prepare the Cheese Sauce:

In a separate bowl, whisk together the melted butter and flour until smooth to create a roux. Gradually add in the evaporated milk and regular milk while whisking continuously.

Add salt and black pepper for seasoning. Keep stirring over medium heat until the sauce thickens and begins to bubble.

Step 3: Combine the Macaroni and Cheese Sauce:

Transfer the cooked macaroni to your crock pot. Pour the cheese sauce over the macaroni and gently stir until all the pasta is coated.

Step 4: Cook on Low Heat:

Cover the crock pot and cook on low heat for 2-3 hours. Be sure to check and stir occasionally to prevent sticking.

Step 5: Optional Crunchy Topping:

If you prefer a crunchy topping, sprinkle breadcrumbs over the mac and cheese during the last 30 minutes of cooking. This step is entirely optional but adds a delightful texture to your dish.

Step 6: Serve and Enjoy!

Once the mac and cheese is fully cooked, serve it hot as a delicious main course or a side dish. It pairs perfectly with a fresh salad or steamed vegetables.

Now that you know how to make Crock Pot Mac and Cheese, you can enjoy this comforting meal with minimal effort. Experiment with different types of cheeses or add some bacon bits for extra flavor. The slow cooker will do all the work while you sit back, relax, and indulge in this cheesy delight!
