Slow Cooker Time LOW2 hr

Cooking MethodCasserole


  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup unbleached, all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried mustard powder
  • 6 ounces various shredded cheeses (such as Cheddar and/or fontina)
  • 2 ounces grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 pound macaroni, partly-cooked (see package instructions and cook half of the suggested time), reserved


  1. Put the butter into the cooking pot of the Multicooker set to Brown/Saut at 300 degrees F.

  2. Once butter has melted, stir in the flour and cook, stirring often, for about 4 to 5 minutes or until mixture is lightly browned and thickened.

  3. Gradually whisk in the milk, salt, pepper, nutmeg and dried mustard using a nonstick whisk. Raise heat to 325 degrees F to bring the mixture to a boil. Stirring constantly, cook about 2 to 3 minutes or so, until thickened.

  4. Once the white sauce has thickened, stir in the cheeses and mix until melted.

  5. Switch the unit to Slow Cook on LOW for 2 hours.

  6. Once time has expired, the unit will automatically switch to Keep Warm. Serve immediately, garnished with toasted breadcrumbs if desired.

I still would probably reduce down the milk so it wasn't so slurry. Add in a sauted medium onion chopped for macaroni size, and by all means, if I had some truffle oil, add it for taste. Or a Jalapeo to give a slightly green taste. One of the best cheeses you could add is gruyere for taste or real fontina imported, not cow's milk soft. For extra 'flair' toasted bread crumbs are wonderful on top.
