This is one of my favorite recipes for an easy weekend meal. A friend brought it to a Bible study potluck and my family has been hooked ever since, although I have tweaked the recipe over time.

It is gooey, flavorful with a hint of garlic, and a snap to put together.

The only downside to this mac and cheese is that, unlike many other crock pot recipes that take all day (while you are at work), this one only takes 3 hours, so it’s great to assemble before church to have ready for Sunday dinner or to have on the weekend when you are at home in the early afternoon, but not so good when you’re all leaving the house at 7:30am.

(I try to eat low-fat as often as possible so I revamped this recipe to make a low-fat version as well. And, yes, it does taste just as good!  That recipe is at the bottom of this post.)

Low fat crock pot macaroni and cheese

I try to eat low-fat as often as possible so I tweaked this recipe to make a low-fat version as well. And, yes, it does taste just as good!

Here is what the cooked low-fat version looks like (I used my other crock pot):

Low fat crock pot macaroni and cheese

Ingredients:

(Makes 6-8 servings)

2 cups of elbow macaroni, cooked and drained

3/4 cup Eggbeaters

1 12 oz. can fat free evaporated milk

2 cups 2% (or fat-free) shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided (*if using fat-free, see note in directions)

1 tsp minced garlic

1/2 tsp garlic salt

1/4 black pepper

Directions:

Lightly spray crock pot with cooking spray, like Pam.

Put cooked and drained macaroni in crock pot.

In a separate bowl, mix together the Eggbeaters, 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese, garlic, spices and evaporated milk.

Pour over macaroni and stir.

Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup of cheese on top. (*Note: if you are using fat-free cheese, once you sprinkle the cheese on the top, spray it very lightly with Pam to help it melt better.)

Put on lid and cook on low for 3 hours. Do not remove lid while cooking.

So no matter which version of crock pot macaroni and cheese you prefer, I promise they both taste delicious!
