Crazy Cooking Challenge: Macaroni and Cheese


Last month I was invited to participate in a
Blog Cooking Challenge. Where all invited would
go and visit a fellow blogger and make their
Macaroni and Cheese recipe.
You can see ALL the recipes by visiting HERE
 
 I am so thrilled to bring to your attention
 the wonderful blog of : Butter and Oven Mitt's
I can tell y'all I have found THE ONE RECIPE
for homemade Macaroni and Cheese that you 
MUST MAKE!!
I am telling you..I have made quite a few recipes
for Macaroni and Cheese. Well not any more!
THIS IS THE ONE FOR ME! (and my family)
*do yourself a favor and give it a try*
Three Cheese Macaroni W/Bacon
Three Cheese and Macaroni w/Bacon
16-17.5 oz. Cooked Macaroni Pasta
1/2 C. Butter
3 TBSP. Flour
1 3/4 C. Milk
1/4 C. Heavy Cream
4 oz. Cream Cheese-softened
1 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Pepper
1/2 tsp. Garlic Powder
1/4 tsp. Onion Powder
2 C. Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
1 C. Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
2.5 oz. pkg. of Real Bacon Pieces

Start by boiling the water and cooking the pasta.
While that is cooking you can start on the cheeses sauce.
In a sauce pan mix butter, flour cooking for 1 minute.
Then add in the milk, cream and seasoning. Whisk until smooth.
Add in the cream cheese and stir until melted.
The mixture will start to thicken.
Stir in the remaining shredded cheese,
continue to stir until melted and blended.
Drain pasta transfer to a large bowl and pour cheese sauce
over pasta. Finally sprinkle bacon pieces in and mix.
*I only adapted this recipe a little, by only adding in
1/2 of the bacon called for. Also adding 1 tsp. Jalapeno juice.*

Love, Comfort and Food,
Lark
