Bacon Macaroni & Cheese
While less of a sophisticated recipe and more of a recommended combination, Bacon Macaroni & Cheese is a dish that is sure to leave you satiated and satisfied. Delicious, simple and affordable, anyone can, and should, enjoy this dish sometime soon!
1 box Macaroni & Cheese
2-4 tbps. Butter
1/4 cup Milk
4 oz. Bacon, sliced (thick or thin cut)
4 oz. Shredded Cheddar Cheese (optional for extra cheesiness)
First, prepare your bacon independently, by either frying it in a pan or baking it in the oven. See our guide here for more details.
After allowing the bacon to cool to a safe temperature, cut it into small 1/4 inch pieces.
Next, prepare your Macaroni and Cheese according to the instructions on its packaging. Most traditional boxes call for for 2-4 tbsp. of butter and a 1/4 cup of Milk. Other, 'Deluxe' Macaroni & Cheese varietal come with a cheese sauce, and require no additional butter or milk. Either type works for this recipe.
After preparing the Macaroni & Cheese, yet while it is still hot, stir in the freshly cooked bacon pieces.
If you are truly cheese obsessed, now is the time to add the additional 4 oz. of Shredded Cheddar Cheese into the mix. I recommend stirring half of the cheese into the Bacon Macaroni & Cheese, and then topping each individual serving with the remaining cheese while plating. Enjoy!
