Slow cooker mac and cheese is quick to put together and ready in 3 1/2 hours. It's cheesy, bacon-y flavor will have you making this again and again!


Units Scale
  • 1 (16 oz) box Small Shell Pasta
  • 1 cup Shredded Monterey Jack Cheese
  • 1 cup Shredded Italian Cheese Blend
  • 1 cup Shredded Provolone ((see the note at the end))
  • 1 lb. Bacon ((or precooked real bacon pieces))
  • 4 cups 2% Milk
  • 1 (12 oz) can Evaporated Milk
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/4 cup Butter, melted
  • 1 Tbs. Flour
  • 1 tsp. Salt


  1. Crisp and crumble 1 lb. of bacon.  Set aside
  2. Lightly spray the inside of a 5-6 quart crockpot.
  3. Toss together the pasta, cheeses, and half the bacon in the crockpot.
  4. Whisk together the milk, evaporated milk, egg, flour, salt, and butter and pour over the ingredients in the crockpot.  Give it a little stir.
  5. Cover and cook on low for 3 1/2 hours.
  6. Sprinkle with remaining bacon and serve!


I can't always find provolone in a block or pre-shredded so I just buy provolone slices and finely slice up about 6 slices.
