Bacon Wednesday: Bacon Mac and Cheese

The Chicks held a party a few weeks ago to thank our wonderful Oyster Easter committee for all the hard work they do to make our biggest annual fundraiser a success. Attendance was very good because we served them Kim’s Bacon Mac and Cheese!

Bacon Mac and Cheese. So wrong, but so very, very right. There is no virtue in it. It’s just sinful. Which is why everyone enjoyed it thoroughly. At the end of the party there was, maybe, a serving or two left. We ate it the next day out by the dock door and I can report that it reheats beautifully.

Bacon Mac and Cheese

1 3/4 cups elbow cooked macaroni

3 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons flour

2 cups whole milk

2 1/2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, divided

6 slices cooked bacon, crumbled

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter in a large saute pan over medium heat. Stir in flour and whisk for about two minutes. Add milk and continue stirring until sauce thickens. Add 1 cup cheese, macaroni and bacon. Transfer to a casserole dish and top with remaining cheese.
Bake for 30 minutes or until bubbly.
