Tricia Yearwood’s Crockpot Mac & CheeseĀ 

I LOVE THIS MAC AND CHEESE! I am always so nervous about using my crock pot to cook pasta that I don’t due it frequently, but I will do this at a drop of a hat. This recipe goes together easily and requires no supervision, so I can focus on other dishes in my sofa tailgating. It is always partnered with Tricia’s Barbecued Chicken, which I will be featuring on The Pub and Grub. They are just good eatin’!

Ingredients:

8 ounces cooked elbow macaroni

One 12-ounce can evaporated milk

1 1/2 cups whole milk

1/4 cup (1/2 stick ) of butter, melted

1 teaspoon salt

Dash of pepper

2 large eggs, beaten

Two 10-ounce bricks sharp Cheddar cheese, grated (about 5 cups)

Directions:

1) In a large 4-quart crock pot very liberally sprayed with cooking spray, mix the macaroni, evaporated milk, milk, butter, salt, pepper, eggs and all but 1/2 cup of the grated cheese.

2) Sprinkle the reserved cheese over the top of the mixture.

3) Cover and cook on low heat for 3 hours and 15 minutes.
Note: If you don’t have a crock pot, grease a 9-by-13-by-2-inch pan with cooking spray, add the mixture and bake at 350 degrees F for 50 minutes.

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
