Recipe type: Side Dish
Cuisine: American

Ingredients
  • ½ pound sliced bacon (sliced into 1 inch pieces)
  • 1 package elbow macaroni (8 ounces)
  • 2 cups milk
  • ½ cup unsalted butter (divided)
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon onion salt

  • 1 package sharp shredded cheddar (8 ounces)
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 450F.
  2. Cook macaroni according to package directions, and drain. While the macaroni is cooking fry the bacon pieces until crisp. Place the bacon on paper towing to drain any excess fat.
  3. In a medium size sauce pan melt ¼ cup of the butter over medium heat; then whisk in the flour, onion salt, and pepper until smooth. Gradually stir in the milk and cook until mixture is smooth and starts to thicken. Add the cheese; cook and stir until melted.
  4. Mix the cheese sauce into the macaroni and fold in the bacon. Place in a 1½ quart casserole dish sprayed with cooking spray. Melt the rest of the butter, mix it with the bread crumbs and sprinkle it evenly over the top of the macaroni and cheese.
  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown, and mac and cheese heated through.
  6. Serve Hot

    Made this a couple nights ago…delicious! I made some additions I sprinkled on to already made macaroni pepper,onion powder, minced garlic, and a bit of chili powder. I also added provolone cheese to my Cheddar. Delish!
