Total Time 2 hours 10 minutes
Servings 8 people

Ingredients

  • 1 lb elbow macaroni
  • 3 ½ cups whole milk
  • 12 oz can evaporated milk
  • 4 oz cream cheese, diced
  • 1 ½ cups mild cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 cup Monterey jack cheese, grated
  • 1 cup processed american cheese, cubed
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • ½ cup butter diced
  • 8 strips center cut bacon, chopped

Instructions

  • Add all the ingredients in to the slow cooker. Stir well.  Cook on low and cover. 
  • Stir after 60 minutes and replace cover. 
  • Cook on low for an additional 60. The total cook time is 2 hours. Slow cookers can run warmer and I advise to check the pasta at the 90 minute mark. 
  • Just before the pasta is done cooking, cook bacon till crisp and set aside. 
  • Stir, top with bacon, and serve.
