Today was incredibly chilly! It felt like the perfect day for some wintry comfort food. We had some leftover steak from dinner so I decided to make some “grown-up” mac and cheese. Although this mac and cheese has a few adult ingredients, it is still family friendly.
Mac and Cheese in A Crock Pot
2 cups uncooked elbow pasta … cook according to package directions, drain and set aside
1 medium onion, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
4 T. butter
8 oz bag shredded cheddar cheese
Saute onion and garlic in butter for about 2 minutes in a medium saucepan. Add shredded cheese and stir until melted. Add to the crockpot.
3 eggs, beaten
1/2 c. sour cream
1 can condensed cheddar cheese soup
1 c. milk (not skim)
1/4 c. chopped parsley
1 c. diced cooked steak (optional)
Add eggs, sour cream, cheddar soup, milk, parsley, and steak to cheese mixture. Stir well.
Add cooked pasta. Heat in a crock pot on low for about 3 hours. Stir occasionally.
