There’s only one thing better than a big bowl of Homemade Macaroni and Cheese: Loaded Bacon Macaroni and Cheese. And, who do you know that doesn’t love mac-n-cheese? Or bacon? Does it surprise you that these two should be married? It shouldn’t. So, eat, my friends, and enjoy.
This is a great, quick meal in itself. Just put this on the table with a side salad, and you’ve got a great dish for the family or friends. And, this is one of those “never-fail” recipes. No way can you go wrong–and there are almost never any leftovers. But, if there are leftovers, they will keep in the fridge for a few days, them warm them up in the microwave, and this dish will taste like you just cooked it! I liked to make this when my son and his friends were kids–you know how teen boys are, they can just eat and eat and never get full. So, I would make them a batch of Loaded Bacon Macaroni and Cheese and they’d polish it off, but they’d all be smiling. Literally–Never Fail.
Makes a great casserole dish for pot-lucks, too. It’s just super-versatile! Anyway. I hope you enjoy it. Don’t forget to like us on Facebook…we’d love to share more with you! LOL!
