Rice Cooker Macaroni and Cheese

I’ve never met a macaroni and cheese I didn’t like. Macaroni and cheese with broccoli, macaroni and cheese with crab meat, macaroni and cheese with bacon. It’s all good. I didn’t think my love for macaroni and cheese could grow until I realized you could make macaroni and cheese from start to finish in your rice cooker. Yes, in your rice cooker. And the best part, it takes under 20 minutes.

In the rice cooker pot add chicken broth and 1 box of pasta. Set the rice cooker to the HEAT/SIMMER cycle for 12 minutes. After the cycle is finished, open the rice cooker and add cheese, half and half, mustard and pepper, stirring until the cheese melts. It’s just that simple.
