Mac and Cheese is awesome. Bacon is awesome. So let’s combine the two and prepare them in the greatest and most indulgent way possible, shall we?
Sure… there may be some other bacon mac and cheese recipes out there, but let me tell ya – the essence of bacon is INFUSED throughout the whole recipe! More on that later…
So what do we start with? A half pound of bacon, shredded white cheddar cheese, whole milk, a pound of pasta, salt and pepper.
But PLEASE, if you’re gonna make, this do it right. No turkey bacon. No low fat cheese. No skim milk. Use the good stuff.
But I must mention how the bacon will be cooked – we are gonna BAKE it. Trust me, this is both easier and superior to frying.
But keep the bacon fat! We are gonna use some of that when we make our roux for the cheese sauce! Read below for the recipe 🙂
Have you grabbed my freezer meal plans, yet? I might be biased but I think they are pretty amazing! They have saved our dinner hour for years now. Check them out!
