Here are some of our favorite crockpot recipes for fall. If you have any of your own, we’d love to hear about them in the comments section.

mac cheese crockpot recipe fall

Creamy crockpot macaroni and cheese recipe for fall

Most children (and adults) love homemade macaroni and cheese. Cooking pasta in a crockpot can be tricky, though, so you must follow some hacks to keep it from getting too mushy.

One of my favorite tricks is to add some extra liquid to allow it to cook right in the sauce. It saves you the extra step of cooking the pasta separately and adding it to the slow cooker later.

Ingredients you’ll need:

  • 1 pound of elbow pasta
  • 2-1/2 cups of A2 Jersey cow raw milk (or any organic milk)
  • 12 ounces of evaporated milk
  • 12 ounces shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 4 ounces of shredded American or Monterrey cheese
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon of dry ground mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup butter (cubed)

How to prepare it:

  • Step 1 – In a 6-quart (or larger) slow cooker, add pre-rinsed uncooked pasta. It’s best to rinse the pasta in cold water and drain.
  • Step 2 – Add the milk, cheese, salt, and pepper to the crockpot and stir until combined well. Make sure the macaroni is submerged in the liquid.
  • Step 3 – Dot the top of the mixture with the cubed butter.
  • Step 4 – Cover and cook on low heat for 1 hour.
  • Step 5 – Remove the lid and stir, then cook for 1 to 2 more hours.

Every crockpot is different, so check your dish every 30 minutes during that final step to ensure you don’t overcook it. When it’s done, the pasta feels tender, and the cheesy sauce is thick and creamy.

You can do more with the slow cooker than make soups and stews. With the right ingredients, you also can create some amazing desserts. One of the most delectable fall desserts is an apple crisp cooked to perfection using this recipe.

  • 1/2cup of granulated sugar
  • 2tablespoons of all-purpose flour

  • Step 2 – Place mixture into a slow cooker.
  • Step 3 – In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, oats, brown sugar, and salt until well mixed. Cut cold butter into the mixture until it’s crumbly in consistency. Sprinkle it over the apple mixture in the crockpot.
  • Step 4 – Cover the crockpot and cook on high heat setting for 2 hours. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 30 minutes.

Preparing the topping:

Once the apple crisp has cooled, you’ll want to make the topping before you serve it. In a separate bowl, combine the following ingredients and mix them well:

  • 1/2cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1/2cup of old-fashioned oats
  • 3/4cup of packed brown sugar
  • 1/4teaspoon of salt
