I can think of nothing better than a Crock Pot loaded with this ultra-creamy mac and cheese. I’ve been known to eat this right out of the Crock Pot before, it’s way too tempting. I love that mac and cheese is a perfect side dish, or meal all on it’s own!

Can This Be Made in the Oven?

You sure can! After boiling the macaroni, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake 30 minutes covered and 30 minutes uncovered. It’s as simple as that!

Can This Be Made in an Instant Pot?

I do have really creamy Instant Pot Mac and Cheese recipe right here for you if you need to cut down on time!

Storing Leftovers

Leftover Macaroni and Cheese should be stored in the refrigerator and is best if eaten withing three days.

Freezing Macaroni and Cheese?

Unfortunately, the consistency of this meal changes quite a bit once frozen and reheated, due to the dairy components, so it’s best to eat it fresh if at all possible.

How to Use Leftover Macaroni and Cheese

If you’re looking for fun ways to use up leftover macaroni and cheese, you could make mac and cheese panini, fried mac and cheese bites, or mac and cheese potato skins!

My Favorite Crock Pot

This is the Crock Pot that I have, I love that you can sear meat right on the stove-top with it.

It also automatically switches to warm once the cooking time is up, which is hugely convenient when you’re out of the house.
