    This is a family favorite! So delicious!
    My family has insisted I make this for every holiday the last 3 or 4 years. Even picky eaters come back for seconds! Good quality cheeses and a little extra fresh ground pepper make all the difference. I love that it frees up the oven for other family favorites too.

    Good But the recipe is way smaller than 6 servings I more than doubled the recipe for my family gathering. It was a big hit with the kids-they came back for seconds and thirds I was told. I omitted the mustard and pepper but added more milk as needed and a second can of cheddar cheese soup.

    This turned out great! Loved it!!! Fixed it up to point of turning on crock pot, then left it sitting for about 2-3 hours before turning on the crock pot, still turned out great.

    Turned out great. Only problem I have is that the taste is a little simple for my liking. For a base Mac and Cheese this is great but I’ll add bacon or some cooked hamburger with seasonings to spice it up a bit.

    This was simple to make and turned out great! It certainly lives up to its name in that it is very creamy. The only thing I felt it needed was a touch of salt. I would definitely recommend this.

    I've made this several times now and am always happy with it. It's a great kids party recipe and the leftovers freeze well. I omit the pepper because it seems to overwhelm the dish.

    This was great but I did not make it the the slow cooker. Instead I added all the ingredients to the cheese mixture and cooked for about 20 minutes.

    Awesome! Definitely making this again I used aged cheddar and it's the creamy slow cooker mac and cheese recipe I have been searching for for years!

    So far my favorite crock pot mac and cheese recipe (and I've tried several)! I only gave it 4 stars because it annoys me that the recipe only calls for a half pound of pasta. So I of course doubled it. I used 2 cans of soup, 12 oz. evaporated milk, 4 oz. 2% milk, 1 cup sour cream, 6 Tbsp. butter, 2 cups shredded cheddar, and also added paprika and garlic powder along with the other seasonings. It seemed done after an hour, but we let it cook 2 hrs. before we ate. It was wonderfully creamy and cheesy and my family really enjoyed it.

    Great!! So easy, my son loves does dad, that says a lot!! I only did a cup of cheese mixed in and just a sprinkle over the top! Never thought of using the cheese sauce, but it makes it so easy! I keep a couple cans in the pantry now, because it's a GO TO!! Enjoy!
