Everyone loves a homemade creamy ooey gooey Mac and Cheese recipe for Thanksgiving. This post includes my two favorite recipes a baked Mac and Cheese and a slow cooker Mac & Cheese plus delicious Mac & Cheese recipes from my favorite bloggers.
Creamy Cheesy Mac & Cheese is probably the ultimate comfort food. A good mac and cheese needs, to be smooth and creamy with lots of melted gooey cheese. The secret to making a creamy mac & cheese is not to over cook it. Do not let mac and cheese cook until it completely sets and firms up. It will take all the creaminess out of the mac & cheese whether you are preparing it in the oven or the slow cooker.
To make this slow cooker Mac and Cheese, I use both sharp cheddar cheese and Gruyere cheese for extra creaminess. It is seasoned well with salt, pepper, granulated garlic, and dry mustard. What I love about this Slow Cooker Mac & Cheese is it is so easy to toss together and put in a Crockpot. The Crockpot does all the work.
Although I have fixed this recipe hundreds of times, every once in a while I will over cook it. When you over cook it, the Mac & Cheese is no longer cheesy, creamy or gooey. After it cooks, be sure to turn it off or on warm.
