Because the only thing better than homemade mac and cheese is homemade SLOW-COOKER mac and cheese that basically makes itself! This is our ultimate recipe, packed with a full pound of cheese for the creamy, dreamy sauce everyone craves. Ground mustard and red pepper add just enough flavor for the grown-ups while still keeping the dish kid-friendly.
