Oryx Recipe: On the Run Mac & Cheese

Jaimie Robinson // February 24

Sometimes as home chefs, we all reach a point where “When's dinner?” reigns supreme. Dinner is further delayed by homework, soccer games, or gymnastics that take place right at dinner time when we are all hungry. Inevitably, we end up at fast food, again.

I created this recipe on the fly in a desperate attempt to avoid the drive-thru. This macaroni and cheese with game meat and Spitfire Gourmet seasonings for dinner in the crockpot is a version of one of my favorites from childhood. Everyone agreed it was a hit and it has become a staple in my repertoire. This recipe is quick to prepare, and it cooks in the crockpot on low in about 2 hours, perfect to throw in during that 5-20 minute turnaround time after school to be ready when you arrive home, starving after whatever event has pulled you out for a bit.

In this twist on the recipe, I used the Spitfire Gourmet Cheesy Veggie spices.

  3. Add the cream cheese. Place the warm meat on top of the cream cheese to help it become more blended and mix well.
  4. Add the cooked macaroni and cover with the shredded cheese. Stir to combine.
  5. Cook for 1-2 hours on low heat.
