I saw this macaroni & cheese on one of my favorite food blogs (Six Sisters’ Stuff) & knew it had to be fattening because it looked so creamy. Haha! Well, I decided I had to make it anyway because my kids are picky & I figured this would be one meal they would actually eat. Well, I was right! My extremely picky 3 1/2 year old asked for SECONDS! I couldn’t believe it! This macaroni & cheese is kind of high maintenance for a slow cooker meal, but it is so CREAMY & delicious. I was totally just going to make a sandwich for myself & eat this on the side, but it was so creamy & cheesy that I totally had a bowl full. Anyway, this is an extremely kid friendly dish, so there you go!
Creamy Crockpot Macaroni & Cheese
- 2 1/2 cups elbow macaroni, uncooked
- 4 Tbsp unsalted butter
- 2 1/2 cups grated medium or sharp cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup light sour cream
- 1 (10.75oz) can condensed cheddar cheese soup
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
- 1/2 tsp dry mustard
- Par-cook macaroni noodles by boiling for 6 minutes. Drain & set aside.
- Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt butter with cheese. Stir until completely melted.
- Spray the inside of a 4-QT slow cooker, add sour cream, condensed cheddar cheese soup, milk, salt, pepper, & mustard. Add melted butter & cheese. Mix well.
- Stir in cooked macaroni. Cook on low for 2 to 2½ hours, stirring every 45 minutes (equals two times) until the noodles are done & have soaked up a lot of the cheese sauce. Serve as is or as a side dish.

Ive been using this recipe over a year and stopped melting the butter and cheese before adding to the crock pot. Comes out still perfect and less clean up!
I’m making this for my father’s Fourth of July party today! Very excited to see how it well turn out.
I tried this recipe with adding half a packet of hidden valley ranch and cut up bits of cooked turkey bacon. Also I used low fat cheddar cheese soup and substituted the sour cream for fat free plain Greek yogurt. More protein and less fat! It turned out delicious.
Ok… stop it… your recipes are making me super hungry tonight 🙂 This crock pot Mac & Cheese looks delicious! I could totally go for a bowl right now!
