Everyone loves a homemade creamy ooey gooey Mac and Cheese recipe for Thanksgiving. This post includes ULTIMATE MAC AND CHEESE RECIPES including a baked and a slow cooker recipe.
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 overcook 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 overcook it. When you cook it too long, the Mac & Cheese is no longer cheesy, creamy or gooey. After it cooks, be sure to turn it off or on warm.

David Venable’s Ultimate Mac and Cheese
I confess I have an addition to In The Kitchen with David. David Venable has a kitchen show on QVC that airs on Sunday afternoons and Wednesday nights. It is no secret; I love kitchen gadgets and food. He always has the latest kitchen everything on his show. David Venable has a cookbook that includes his favorite recipe for Mac and Cheese. I have to agree that I loved it too. He is famous for doing a Happy Dance. His mac & cheese made me do a Happy, Happy Dance too. It is loaded with flavor with several different types of cheese to dry mustard. It is homemade and something special. See David Venable’s Ultimate Mac & Cheese here.
