  • Slow Cooker


  • 1 box elbow macaroni (16 ounces, uncooked)
  • ½ stick butter
  • 3 cups milk (I used whole milk)
  • 1 tsp dry mustard
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 12 ounces medium cheddar grated (freshly grated if possible)


  • Begin by spraying your slow cooker with non-stick spray.
  • Add the macaroni and then cover with milk.
  • Try to make sure that the macaroni is mostly covered by milk.
  • Add the dry mustard, paprika, salt, and pepper. Stir gently.
  • Slice the butter into small slices and add the butter.
  • Add the cheese.
  • Cook on low for 2 hours and 15 minutes, stir the mixture occasionally to help keep the noodles firm about once every hour.
