Gourmet Macaroni and Cheese with Crumbled Bacon

Cook pasta to al dente according to the box. While water is boiling, pour a pint of light cream into a sauce pan and add a half of stick of butter. Bring to a low boil and reduce heat.  Slowly add a cup of shredded vermont white cheddar and a cup of shredded sharp cheddar to the sauce pan.  Whisk until combined.  Allow to simmer until pastas is finished cooking.  Drain Pasta and return to pot.  Fold in cheese mixture.  Grease a medium sized baking dish and add pasta and cheese mixture.  Top with cheddar cheese and bake covered for 35 minutes at 400 degrees.  Add crumbled bacon to the top.
*we used hormel bacon pieces that we already had on hand.


  1. Yum yum! I love mac and cheese, but sadly the cheese always turns out hard!?! I made crock pot zuppa toscana yesterday and it was delish! PS Found a use for all those single wreaths, my side door off the kitchen, fun to decorate. Happy weekend!

  2. Looks delicious...the ultimate comfort food!

  3. I need to make this. Hopefully tonight, it's an ugly rainy day here. Perfect for cooking.

  4. That looks so good! Especially now that it is chillier outside! Yum.

  5. Is it bad I want to eat this right now...for breakfast!?

  6. Really, all you had to do was say bacon :).


Thanks for joining the conversation!
