Macaroni and Cheese

This is just one of many recipes for macaroni and cheese. In its basic form it can be made with elbow macaroni, chedar cheese, cream or milk and butter or margarine. Most recipes also call for eggs, as did the recipe from Kristin Neuman, from which this recipe started. Common variations include the variety or blends of cheese used. Here I have added Asiago cheese. Other additions are common. I have added bacon bits here, though ham is also common. Most recipes include baking the macaroni and cheese. This recipe slow cooks it in a crock-pot.
Serves 8.
