Description

3 Cheese Bacon Mac N Cheese Recipe The Ultimate in comfort food, this 3 cheese bacon mac-n-cheese will become a family favorite immediately.


Ingredients

  • 1 box of Kroger Elbow Noodles
  • 1 package of Kroger Bacon (use six slices)
  • 1 cup of Kroger Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 cup of Kroger Parmesan Cheese
  • 1/2 cup of Kroger Gouda Cheese (or 4 slices)
  • 1/4 cup of Kroger Butter
  • 2 cups of Kroger Half N Half (or you can substitute milk)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional – 1/2 cup of diced onion
  • Extra shredded cheese for top of dish

Instructions

  1. Slice up the bacon into bacon bit sizes, and fry up (until they are ham consistency, not crispy). I find it easier to get this chewier consistency if you cook it on medium to medium low heat (render it).
  2. Remove the bacon bits, once bacon is cooked, and transfer to paper towel.
  3. Dice up the onion if you are using onion, and cook in the bacon grease until translucent, about 3 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat, and set aside.
  5. In a sauce pan add the butter, cream and cheeses. Cook over low heat until they are melted together, stirring regularly.
  6. Boil the noodles until al dente and drain.
  7. In a baking dish, add the drained noodles, cheese sauce, bacon (reserve 1/4 of bacon for top) and onions. Also add 1 tablespoon of the bacon grease for added bacon flavor.
  8. Carefully mix all the ingredients together.
  9. Sprinkle remaining cheese and bacon on top of the Mac n Cheese in the casserole dish, and bake at 350 for 20 minutes, or until browned on top.
