Picky Eaters No More

Do you have a picky eater? One of my kids hates homemade Mac and Cheese. 

I have had to revamp my recipe until I found one he liked. Well... getting triples at dinner time was a thing that day! I have an extra mouth to feed for the time being, so I am all about crockpot recipes and good ol' home cooking! I tried it as a no boil once and that did not work out too well, I suggest boiling the noodles every time. 

This is a great dish to bring to a party or add as a side dish for your own party.


  • 1 (16 ounce) package elbow macaroni 

  • ½ cup butter 

  • 1 pinch salt and ground black pepper to taste 

  • 1 (16 ounce) package shredded Cheddar cheese, divided 

  • 8 ounces Gouda cheese 

  • 1 (5 ounce) can evaporated milk 

  • 2 large eggs eggs, well beaten 

  • 2 cups whole milk 

  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed Cheddar cheese soup (such as Campbell's®) 

  • 1 pinch paprika, or as desired 


  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook elbow macaroni in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 8 minutes. Drain and transfer pasta to slow cooker. 

  • Add butter to pasta and stir until melted; season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle about 1/2 the Cheddar cheese over pasta and stir. 

  • Whisk evaporated milk and eggs together in a bowl until smooth; stir into pasta mixture. 

  • Whisk milk and Cheddar cheese soup together in a bowl until smooth; stir into pasta mixture. Sprinkle remaining cheese over pasta mixture; garnish with paprika. 

  • Cook on Low for 3 hours.
