Growing up, we didn’t have homemade macaroni and cheese very often. Most of the time when we did have it, it was a boxed variety. We ate the boxed macaroni and cheese A LOT. It was a side dish for hot dogs, hamburgers, fish sticks…you name it.
I, however, have been making homemade mac and cheese for years. Generally when I make it, I don’t include meat, like this version does, but sometimes I mix things up a bit and do something different.
This Chicken-Bacon Macaroni and Cheese is one such example of that. I love the combo of chicken and bacon, so this was a natural progression in my mac & cheese making.
In the words of Courtney: “It’s really, really, really good. It’s my favorite macaroni and cheese that you make”. It includes bacon, one of her favorites, so I’m not surprised. It’s one of my favorites too and perfect for the cooler weather we are FINALLY starting to get in Las Vegas. Enjoy!Print
