INSTRUCTIONS

  2. Parboil the macaroni in salted water for 6 minutes.
  3. While the macaroni is cooking, in a small mixing bowl, whisk together, the melted butter, evaporated milk, cheddar cheese soup, sour cream, eggs and seasonings. Whisk until fully combined.
  4. After cooking the macaroni for 6 minutes, drain well. Add to the slow cooker
  5. Pour the cheese sauce over the macaroni along with 3 cups of shredded triple cheddar cheese.
  6. Stir all of the ingredients together until the macaroni is coated and the sauce is evenly distributed.
  7. Cover and cook on low for 2 hours.
