  • Brown bacon slices in pan. Set aside. Pour off bacon fat, but don't clean the pan. Add olive oil. Saute onion until softened, but not browned. Reserve 2 tablespoons for topping.
  • Add flour to onion in pan. Cook 5 minutes. Add milk, mustard, cayenne, salt and pepper. Whisk constantly while bringing to a boil. Let boil 5 minutes or until thickened. Turn off heat. Add cream cheese and stir until melted. Add shredded cheese and stir until melted. Dice 3 strips of bacon and add to sauce. Stir cheese sauce into the macaroni and pour into 9x13 pan. Mixture will be soupy.

  • Bake in 350 degrees F oven for 30-45 minutes.

Special Equipment Needed


I've been working on this recipe for quite a while. I love the creamy mac and cheese you get from stove top preparations, but missed the crunchy topping and the cohesiveness of baked. I think this marries both perfectly. It has been a hit with my family and I've brought it for pot luck dinners, and people can't get enough.
