Crockpot Mac and Cheese

My Mom made the best macaroni and cheese in a crock which she put into the oven and baked. She precooked her elbow macaroni. The secret to her fabulous tasting mac and cheese was that she took the time to cube down some really good cheddar cheese.

This recipe has all the main ingredients and is also done in a crock but it's a crock pot not a crock for the oven.

I recommend that you use Colby Cheese in place of the Sharp Cheddar. The sharp tends to leave the cheese a bit gritty unless you cook it on high. The Colby gives you a creamier consistency. I remember my mother used to cut up a round of Colby that she bought from the farmer who came around.

If you prefer you can spice this recipe up with some broccoli or other great vegetable ingredients to give it a healthier touch.
