Everyone Will Love This Baked Macaroni and Cheese with Sausage and Bacon Recipe

Most baked mac and cheese recipes have you use the oven for cooking. Not this one! In this recipe, we'll be using the crock pot to do most of the cooking. It's an efficient and easy way to cook a great dinner for your entire family.

Who doesn't love baked mac and cheese? This recipe is even better thanks to the inclusion of sausage and bacon. In terms of cheese, we use two different kinds of cheese. Two flavors of cheese is more than sufficient for this recipe, but you can always add more if you want.

This is a dinner that the kids will love. It might not be the healthiest thing out there, but indulging in something like this is okay in moderation. Everyone needs a comfort meal; this one can definitely fit that bill! Add some crushed potato chips on top for a nice crunch.
