Easter has come and gone, along with it all the cute bunnies, chickies, chocolates and pastels. What does Easter usually leave behind though? Ham, and plenty of it. If your house is anything like mine, by day 2 or 3 of eating leftover ham you’re ready for something different. Now that’s not to say I don’t enjoy ham, I personally love it. But I’m not crazy about eating the same thing day in and day out.
This is what I cooked today…Crock Pot Ham, Macaroni and Cheese! So good! Got it from a friend a while back and decided to add ham, and it is always a hit! This recipe is for a 5 qt Crock pot, but you can double the ingredients for a larger pot.
Crock Pot Ham, Macaroni and Cheese
1 lb elbow noodles
1 can evaporated milk
1 stick of butter
1 egg, beaten
5 cups of cheese, 1/2 sharp, 1/2 mild
2 cups regular milk
Salt and pepper to taste
Ham chunks (I buy them all ready cut, and browned them in pan with little butter)
Boil noodles till almost done in in pot, drain
Take 1/2 stick of butter and cut small pieces in bottom of crock pot.
Add noodles, the stir in evaporated milk, rest of butter, egg, milk, ham, and 4 cups of cheese.
Cook on low 4 hours, or high on 2 1/2.
One hour before time ends, add remainder cheese on top.
