  • 4 quart or larger slow cooker
  • slow cooker liner or parchment paper
  • 2 mixing bowls
  • Stove top pot to cook noodles
  • strainer for noodles
  • non-stick spray


  • 12 oz egg noodles I like fine noodles, but wide will work just as well
  • 4 cups milk I use fat free, for a creamier finished product, use whole milk.
  • 6 eggs, beaten
  • 12 oz cream cheese 1.5 bricks
  • 6 oz butter 1.5 sticks
  • 1 scant cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups dried cranberries can be substituted with raisins, if you prefer
  • cinnamon (optional)


  • Line slow cooker with liner or parchment paper and spray with non-stick spray, set aside
  • Cook noodles according to instructions on package
  • Add butter and cream cheese to a large mixing bowl
  • drain noodles after cooking and place the hot noodles in the bowl with cream cheese and butter
    allow the hot noodles to melt/soften the butter and cream cheese a bit.
  • stir noodles together with cream cheese and butter until thoroughly mixed
  • add sugar, vanilla and dried cranberries to noodle mixture and allow to cool slightly
  • In a separate bowl, whisk eggs together
  • add eggs and milk to noodles and stir to combine
  • Pour mixture into lined slow cooker
  • cover and cook on high 3½-4 hours until fully set. If you want to confirm that your dish is cooked through, the middle should reach 165°F - the temperature at which is considered safe to eat cooked eggs.
  • Allow to cool, slice and serve
  • Enjoy!!
