    How did you get it to brown on top? Does it really brown in the crock pot?

  6. Jenntiger says:

    It’s the paprika that makes it look browned. The edges will darken if you cook it long enough, but the cheese is usually just melty and delish.

  7. Jenntiger says:

    I was super careful about mixing everything correctly and making sure the eggs were well mixed in. Cooked on high 45 mins, then low for the full 4 hours. My Mac and cheese has the consistency of an undercooked souffle. I can definitely tell where the egg bits are; and with how soggy it is, I’m a little worried the eggs are undercooked. Don’t know where I went wrong. :-/

    4.5 qt I think? The recipe filled it to the top.
