I've been looking for a "tried & true" crock pot mac and cheese recipe. I have everything but the evaporated milk..... :(

Do you have dry powdered milk? I suspect if you mix it up thicker than regular milk, it would be an appropriate substitute for evap milk.

Went internet hunting and found this:

No need to pay a premium for those little cans of evaporated milk. You can make your own in two minutes or less.

Prep Time: 2 minutes

Ingredients:
2/3 cup non-fat dry milk
3/4 cup water

Preparation:
Mix the water and dry milk powder together. Then, use in place of the evaporated milk in any recipe.

Yield: 1 cup (8 ounces)

yummy! I make mine with a can of chedder cheese soup, half n half, and chedder cheese, so easy!

On days when I have NO desire to cook I toss in Veggies (sometimes chedderwurst, or keilbasa too) and you have a meal in a pot :)

OOH! Now that's different. I rarely use my crock pot, but I might have to pull it out for this one. Sounds like something my family will like!

Thanks for posting!

Thanks for bumping this :) I'm going to add it to my next meal plan.
For those of you that have done this is the Crockpot on High or Low? I'm guessing High.
