Bacon mac and cheese

Bacon Mac and Cheese

For the mac and cheese
8 slices bacon, cooked and chopped
12 pound macaroni noodles
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
1 12 cups milk
34 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
34 cup shredded Colby jack cheese
4 slices American cheese, cut into pieces
12 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon salt
14 teaspoon pepper

For the topping
12 cup crushed Ritz crackers
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 teaspoon parmesan cheese

Preheat the oven to 350. Cook the noodles according to the package directions, then drain. While the pasta is cooking, melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the flour and whisk together to form a paste. Cook 3-4 minutes, until golden. Slowly add the milk, whisking constantly. Bring the mixture to a simmer, whisking frequently, until thickened. Remove from heat and stir in the cheese, mustard, salt, and pepper, until the cheese is melted and the sauce is smooth. Stir in the cooked noodles and about 23 of the chopped bacon. Pour the macaroni mixture into a 9 x 9 baking dish. In a small bowl, mix together the crushed crackers, butter, and parmesan. Sprinkle the cracker mixture over the macaroni, then top with the remaining chopped bacon. Bake 15 minutes, or until the sauce is bubbling and the topping is golden brown.

  1. Bacon mac and cheese sounds great but I thought I would mention that I believe your recipe reads wrong. It says twelve pounds of macaroni when I believe it should be one- half pound. Thirty-four cups of cheese when I believe it should be three-fourths cup. Each portion that should be a fraction is missing the slash between the numbers.
    I actually got a good chuckle out of it. I could imagine someone who didn’t know anything about cooking trying this. LOL! I hope you have a great day! 🙂
