I’ve made numerous variants of mac and cheese in my kitchen. They range from a cheeseburger pasta recipe which is basically a mac and cheese meets hamburger helper sort of dish to a rather glorious chard and smoked gouda mac and cheese that I wrote when I first started blogging (it’s such an embarrassingly written post with terrible photos, please don’t judge me). I have at least two or three other mac and cheese recipes in my kitchen arsenal that I have yet to write up. But it’s my easy bacon mac and cheese recipe that I want to chat about today!
You make it on the stovetop. It’s done in one pan, including the macaroni, meaning no pre-cooking and draining the pasta! You can eat it right then and there, if you like a super creamy stove-top style mac and cheese. But I’ve also added an option to cover it with bread cubes and bake it in a screaming hot oven for 10 minutes to get the convenience of stove top and the crunch of a baked-style mac and cheese. It’s the sort of one-stop-shop of creamy bacon mac and cheese and it comes together fast! With minimal effort, this homemade mac and cheese with bacon recipe is absolutely worth it.…
