Ingredients

  • 1 lb box elbow noodles
  • 1 lb bacon, cooked and chopped
  • 2 cans condensed cheddar cheese soup
  • 1 cup Borden® Mild Cheddar Thick Cut Shreds
  • 1 cup Borden® Mozzarella Thick Cut Shreds
  • 1.5 cups milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Instructions

  1. Spray a slow cooker with nonstick spray or line with a slow cooker liner.
  2. Cook noodle according to package instructions, drain and add to slow cooker.
  3. Add remaining ingredients and stir well to mix.
  4. Cook on high 2 hours.

Notes

Variations

  • If you want to leave the slow cooker on one setting the entire time, cook on low for 3 hours, cooking on high longer than an hour will cause the sides to crisp
  • If you prefer your bacon crisp wait until serving to stir in the crumbles
  • Sauté chopped jalapeño in the bacon fat for a few minutes and add into the mac before cooking to add a little spice
  • Top with crumbled Ritz cracker crumbs before serving
