REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
this turned out great! One trick I've found with crock pot recipes calling for shredded cheese is to NOT use the pre-shredded kind. It contains starches to keep the shreds separate and it just doesn't melt as nicely in the crock pot. Get a big old block of cheddar and grate it yourself - you'll be SO happy with the results!

REVIEW: 2 star recipe rating
I was intrigued by the inclusion of bacon in this recipe and I was not disappointed by the results -- the bacon added a wonderful aroma and the flavor was indeed present in the final product.

The actual macaroni and cheese, however, was disappointing. It wasn't at all creamy; instead, the cheese mostly "sat" on top of the macaroni, producing a final texture that was rather grainy. The flavor also left me wanting -- overall, the dish was rather bland.

I've found these shortcomings to be in every recipe for macaroni and cheese that does not call for making a separate cheese "sauce" with flour and milk before adding the pasta. I was hoping that this one would be different, but alas, it is not.
