Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Why is my mac and cheese dry? How do I fix it?

If you have never used noodles in a recipe there is a dark side to them. They absorb all the moisture in the dish. This is why they are best served fresh and hot.

With baked mac and cheese, if you pay attention the next day or once it’s cold the dish is very dry. Since this recipe is “slow cooked” it will happen much faster due to the noodles.

An easy way to fix this is with heavy cream or milk. Heavy cream is best but you’ll need something with fat in it. It’ll work into the cheese while keeping it creamy and you will not sacrifice flavor. And it doesn’t take much, only two tablespoons to a fourth of a cup.

Can I cook the macaroni in the crockpot?

Yes and you can see how here. But, this process takes much longer to do and honestly the results will be the same as if you cooked the noodles on the stove. With the exception of having to babysit them in the crockpot creating more work for yourself and more time cooking.
