Crockpot Macaroni & Cheese

I make this every now and then for the children and they love it.

4 cups, elbow macaroni, cooked and rinsed (start with 4 cups, dry which will double when cooked)
4 eggs, beaten
4 cups mild cheddar cheese, grated
4 cups milk
2 (5 oz.) cans evaporated milk
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. dry mustard
1/2 tsp. pepper

First you boil, drain and rinse the macaroni. Add it to the crockpot.

Add 3 cups of the grated cheese (reserve 1 cup) and mix everything well. Sprinkle the reserved cup of cheese on top.

Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours until the liquid is absorbed.

I gave mine a stir before I served it to get all the melted cheese through.

It was a hit! The boys had 3 bowlfuls each!
