Home Crock Pot Meals Gluten Free Crock Pot Mac n Cheese

This recipe was a huge hit at our oldest daughter’s 5th birthday party!  When you have to feed 15 young kids nothing does the trick better than macaroni and cheese!  When the party was over there wasn’t even a bites worth left in the slow cooker.  This recipe is perfect for any type of family or friend gathering.  I can see this dish at Thanksgiving, Easter, a pot luck meal or even Christmas.  


This is a simple recipe that doesn’t take long to prepare and will be a huge crowd pleaser.  And no one can tell it is Gluten Free!


What You Need:

12 oz box of GF elbow noodles (multi-grains are best)
10 oz colby and monterrey jack cheese, cubed
10 oz velveeta cheese, cubed
1 stick butter, cubed (1/2 cup)
Salt and pepper
1 cup of milk
12 oz can of evaporated milk
 
How To Make It:
Boil GF noodles for only 6 minutes and drain.  Grease your slow cooker, I used a 3 qt size.  Fill the crock pot with the following layers: 1/2 the noodles, 1/2 the cheeses and butter, 1/2 the noodles, 1/2 the cheeses and butter, salt and pepper, then pour the milk and evaporated milk over the top.  Cook on low for 3 hours.  Stir once halfway through cooking. 


Notice the cooking time on the noodles is only 6 minutes, this is to avoid them turning to mush.  Also don’t over stir this dish, once is enough.  Extra stirring will break up the noodles. 

For the party I had 8 different topping options.  The kids loved getting to pick what went on top of their mac n cheese.  The hot dogs and bacon were the top 2 favorites!  The toppings included: salsa, avocados, tomatoes, hot dogs, bacon, extra cheese, sour cream, and pepperoni.


I hope this simple Gluten Free recipe will become one of your family’s favorites!

Enjoy!
