Sharp cheddar mac and cheese with bacon

So as I was layering my Mac in which i baked in a bread loaf pan I heated up the shrimp scampi. I cut the shrimps in half and spooned them on top of the cheese of my first layer. I added the second layer of pasta and mozz, I then sprinkled a few bread crumbs over the top layer and then I mixed the remaining bread crumbs with the shrimp scampi sauce and sprinkled it on top. Thank you Resha. I think all of your recipes look delicous and i will try them ALL!

I will definitely be making this again! All the little spices really made such a difference. Great tip regarding the pasta water. Thank you, Resha! I live in Ireland so had to make some small changes but a good vintage farmhouse cheddar and smoked streaky rashers were very acceptable. Brilliant dish,smiley faces all round. Was really awesome. I made this delicious mac twice last December, and made it for Christmas also. After my husband tasted it he was so impressed by my cooking, haha.

Making it again this Thanksgiving! I was wondering the Same thing! My mom used to make mac and cheese with bacon and I loved it.

Now my grandkids are lovers of mac and cheese their parents make it from the box mix, yes I know, why? It sounds delicious but my mom would layer the bacon with the mac and cheese like you do. Is there a reason why all the recipes I see online put it on top only. Just wondering. You can absolutely layer it in if you want. You can do whatever you want to any recipe my dear. The reason most people put it on top is so it can crisp up a little more and the fat renders out and seeps into the mac and cheese and breadcrumbs, giving it a bit more flavor as they toast.

I think not using pre shredded cheeses and pre cut garlic make a huge difference,love this recipe! So good! I added one diced tomato but took out the seeds. Must try! Then I put it on the middle rack, no baking sheet for about 5 minutes to brown it up. Flipping Fantastic!!!!

I love this recipe and have been making it for years. Our family loves it. This is the most requested dish in our house. Hey I love all your recipes , I really want to try this but do you have any suggestions for substituting the bacon or prosciutto? Hello, this recipe looks absolutely amazing!

Your advice would be greatly appreciated, and thanks for the recipe! Also, do you want them to have a small one-time only portion or possibly have seconds? I read further up that you used the doubled version twice for ppl.

Bacon Mac and Cheese - Dinner at the Zoo

If I were to put it all in one large aluminum pan, what would you suggest I heat the oven to and for about how long? I know you said do not use pre shredded cheese but I went thanksgiving shopping last minute. I got everything except I bought whole milk instead of half and half. Pre shredded cheese instead of block cheese.

Forgot the breadcrumbs and the cayenne pepper. Will it still taste okay-ish? I made this for Thanksgiving and it was great. I use penne rigatti sp? Your instructions were so easy to follow, so thank you! Everyone loved it. I made a slight mistake of cooking the bacon too much so by the time it came out the oven it was a little too crispy, so I would be more careful with that step next time. Even still, I received tons of compliments on the dish. I will definitely make it again.

I tried it with Extra white sharp cheddar, and I am wondering how it will differ next time if I use 1 cup of sharp cheddar and 1 cup of extra sharp white cheddar. Now I am hungry. This looks delish. I just tried this tonight and it was great! My husband absolutely loved it. Very rich and creamy.

Hi, I live in the UK, and want to try this recipe…just one question though, what is half and half is it two types of milk? My husband and I made this for a pot luck and it was amazing! He wanted it a little creamier tho.

    The Recipe

    Or any suggestions u can give will be good. I feel like Christmas came early! Tell me what you think about using bacon grease instead of butter. Seems like it would add a more bacon-y flavor without actually adding more bacon. Thanks so much! This looks delicious!

    Do they greatly impact the flavor? Will the recipe suffer if I remove? I hosted a dinner party last week, and decided to make my first ever mac and cheese. The second I read the ingredients, I knew immediately that this was going to be it!

    The Best, Creamiest Mac ‘n Cheese with Gruyere, Cheddar, and Bacon

    Everyone had seconds, and I still had enough to freeze for one more meal for me. I told friends at work about this recipe, and they all asked me to print it out for them. I made this with pepper jack cheese for my boyfriend, it was absolutely amazing. Best Mac and Cheese we have ever had and we have had a lot of mac and cheese. Last Thanksgiving, I made it with shrimp and several different types of cheese and it was delicious. Thank you for being the sexy chef you are lol. I will be making this and have all the ingredients except only one block of the NY white cheddar can I substitute a yellow sharp cheddar for the remainder?

    Will this work if I double the recipe with the yellow shard cheddar as well? Everyone loves it. I have one question: to halve the portion size should I simply cut all ingredients in half, or are there different proportions as you laid out in the instructions for doubling? I just want to have a gluttonous moment for myself and want to make sure I do it right!

    I love your blog, instargram accounts, and especially your snapchat. I was told I should only use mild cheddar not sharp cheddar or other kinds of cheeses. I want to avoid another disaster. I know this is a really late reply but it may help someone else.
