    I have learned something new today. I never knew you could make mac & cheese in the crock pot. A friend of mine swears by this recipe. I Love Paula Deen. She uses butter mmmmmm :p Always trust a pudgy southern woman!


    This is a Paula Deen Recipe.

    2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni (an 8-ounce box isn't quite 2 cups)
    4 tablespoons (1/2 stuck) butter, cut into pieces
    2 1/2 cups (about 10 ounces) grated sharp Cheddar cheese
    3 eggs, beaten
    1/2 cup sour cream
    1 (10 3/4-ounce) can condensed Cheddar cheese soup
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 cup whole milk
    1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
    1/2 teaspoon black pepper

    Boil the macaroni in a 2 quart saucepan in plenty of water until tender, about 7 minutes. Drain. In a medium saucepan, mix butter and cheese. Stir until the cheese melts. In a slow cooker, combine cheese/butter mixture and add the eggs, sour cream, soup, salt, milk, mustard and pepper and stir well. Then add drained macaroni and stir again. Set the slow cooker on low setting and cook for 3 hours, stirring occasionally.

    Now, exactly *how* does a "stuck" convert in American measurements? :wink:

    Goodness that sounds yummy.

    Ummmm...it sounds mushy. I can't imagine the condition of the macaroni after being in a crock pot for three hours?

    I have a confession to make. I'm not a Paula fan.

    You don't like Paula? Her food is by no means healthy but it is good.

    No. Her food is way too sweet for me. I've tried a few of her recipes and I just don't care for them.

    I like more of a southern cooking than her's, if that makes any sense? Collard, ham hocks, corn bread (no sugar thank you!) fried okra, that sort of stuff.

    I don't know why, but I feel really bad for not liking her! :o She just doesn't do me, I guess. :sigh;

    Oh, wouldn't that be divine! Fried okra for breakfast. I haven't had it in years to be honest, but boy I sure do love the stuff.

    (Fried okra, collard with ham... fried chicken... ). Better not go there!

    I haven't had it in forever either...and quite honestly wouldn't know the first thing about making it...(which is probably a good thing; self preservation in a sense ) My grandmother could fry a chicken that would make you cry...and her okra.... *sigh* My goodness I'd forgotten how much I love her cooking.
