  • 6 slices Sugardale Hickory Smoked Bacons
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2-1/2 CUPS     HEAVY  WHOLE CREAM
  • 3/4 cup half and half
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dijon mustard
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chicken bouillon paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper , to taste
  • 3 cups freshly grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese

Crumb topping:

  • 1/2 cup     chicken in a bizket  CRUSHEd crumbs
  • 1 Tablespoon butter , melted
  • 1/2 Tablespoon olive oil

Instructions

  1. Cook pasta according to package instructions, just until al dente. Don’t overcook! Strain and rinse with cold water. Set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 8x8 baking dish with bacon grease.
  3. Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crispy, about 5-7 minutes. Remove bacon to a plate lined with paper towels. Remove some, but not all of the grease from the pan.
  4. Add 1 tablespoons butter to the pan and then whisk in flour. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Reduce heat to low and gradually whisk in milk. 
  5. Add the cornstarch to the half and half and whisk until smooth. Gradually add it to skillet followed by mustard, chicken bullion, onion powder, garlic, powder, parsley, salt and pepper.
  6. Cook sauce for a few more minutes, just until it begins to slightly thicken. Remove from heat and stir in shredded cheddar cheese. 
  7. Crumble/chop the bacon and add most of it to the pan, reserving a little for topping later. Add cooked pasta and toss to evenly combine.
  8. Pour mixture into 8x8’’ baking dish. Sprinkle parmesan cheese on top.
  9. Add panko, melted butter and olive oil to a skillet (or, I use the pan the pasta was cooked in, just to use less dishes). Cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until crumbs are golden brown. 
  10. Evenly sprinkle them over mac cheese. Add remaining bacon crumbles on top.
  11. Bake 15-20 minutes or until bubbly. Serve warm.

The 15 Best Cheeses to Put in Mac and Cheese

It's all about that cheese pull.


....................... Without further ado, I give you the best cheeses for mac and cheese.

1. Parmesan

dairy product, cheese, milk, parmesan
Amy Le

Parmesan was the OG cheese of mac and cheese. The first ever recipe of mac and cheese or "de lasanis" was made from fermented dough and Parmesan cheese. 

2. Sharp Cheddar

Caroline Ingalls

Take a scroll through your Pinterest feed, and you'll discover that plain ol' sharp cheddar is one of the most popular cheeses for mac and cheese. It's practically a staple of American childhood. Cheddar melts easily, so it's perfect for that mouthwatering cheese pull. 

3. White Cheddar

Alia Nahra

Use white cheddar instead of sharp cheddar, use white cheddar with sharp cheddar, or use white cheddar with Gruyère. White cheddar goes great in every mac and cheese recipe. 

4. Smoked Gouda

Jason Cruz

What more can I say? Smoked gouda is good on noodles, it pairs well with apples, and makes your cheese board extra bougie. The "cold smoked" process gives it a subtle smokey flavor that doesn't compromise the fudge-y texture. Smoked gouda makes mac and cheese an adult meal. 

5. Fontina

Mac And Cheese, Macaroni and cheese, macaroni, cereal, corn, popcorn, cheese
Julia Gilman

The semi soft, creamy texture makes for a decadent mac and cheese. The buttery flavor complements other cheeses for a flavor explosion. 

6. Gruyère  

Gruyère cheese has the most amazing nutty flavor. It also has a smooth melt that is absolutely delicious when mixed with tomatoes.

7. Gorgonzola

cheddar, dairy, dairy product, milk, cheese
Amanda Shulman

I get that blue cheese has that stinky cheese stereotype, but hear me out. Blue cheese makes an excellent addition to every other cheese on this list. It adds the perfect amount of zing to  traditional mac and cheese. 

8. Parmigiano Reggiano

Instead of topping your mac and cheese with breadcrumbs, go for the Parmigiano Reggiano. Parmigiano Reggiano is better than your average Parmesan, because it's held to stricter guidelines. It must be made in a specific region of Italy which contributes to its unique flavor.  It's the cheesy crust you never knew you needed. 

9. Mozzarella 

Mozzarella is a no brainer! Whether you want to make your own or go with a store variety, this is a cheese you can just toss in because it goes with everything.

10. Chevré

Chevré is just a fancy way of saying goat cheese. It will soften, but not totally melt, so it definitely has to be paired with other cheeses if you're going for full on mac and cheese. If you're happy with pasta and cheese, mix in some kale and chicken sausage for a quick and delicious dinner

11. Pepper Jack

dairy, dairy product, milk, cheese
Caroline Ingalls

Kick up your flavor just a notch. Pepper Jack isn't overwhelmingly spicy, so it just adds enough kick to change up the traditional flavors. 

12. Racelette 

The Instagram star of 2017, racelette is beautiful in preparation and presentation. It bubbles and slides right off the wheel in a way that I can only describe as food porn. This will add the most mouthwatering texture to your mac, plus it's super fun to bake with.

13. Feta 

cottage cheese, sweet, dairy product, flour, cereal, milk, rice
Caroline Ingalls

Not a traditional candidate for mac and cheese, feta is the true underdog here. The tangy taste is fun addition to other staple cheeses. Just be careful not to add too much salt to your mac and cheese since feta is quite salty on its own.

14. Brie

dairy, dairy product, mashed potatoes, sauce, pasta, milk, cheese, tortellini, cream
Jayna Goldstein

The super creamy texture of Brie adds a great richness and creaminess to the dish. This easy mac and cheese recipe can be made in 10 minutes AND it's fancy enough to include four cheeses (including Brie, of course).

15. No Cheese at All

macaroni, cheese, sauce, pasta
Missy Miller

Cheese is something I truly cannot imagine my life without. So hear me out when I say that this vegan mac and cheese recipe will have you questioning if it's the real deal. 

============================

..........If you're not hungry after reading this, you're not human. Go grab yourself a box of pasta, get bougie in the 

cheese aisle, and get creative in your kitchen!..............

.......BINGO BANGO BONGO....  BOOM BABY   !!!

Health Benefits of Cheese


https://www.healthyeating.org/Milk-Dairy/Nutrients-in-Milk-Cheese-Yogurt/Nutrients-in-Cheese

Cheese contains a host of nutrients like calcium, protein, phosphorus, zinc, vitamin A and vitamin B12. Calcium is one of the nutrients most likely to be lacking in the American diet. According to government statistics, nine out of 10 women and six out of 10 men fall short of calcium recommendations. The high-quality protein in cheese provides the body with essential building blocks for strong muscles. For a complete listing of the nutrients in cheese, see the table below.

Only 27 days until St. Patricks Day!!

          

                                                                  

        Shamrocks for St. Patrick's Day  

St. Patrick was patron saint and national apostle of Ireland who is credited with successfully bringing Christianity to Ireland.

March 17 is widely accepted as the date of St. Patrick’s death in A.D. 461.

Was there really a St. Patrick? Definitely. Did he really drive the snakes out of Ireland? Probably not, since snakes weren’t native to Ireland.

St. Patrick was born in Britain as Maewyn Succat. At age 16 (around A.D. 400), he was kidnapped from his home on the west coast and carried off to Ireland to become a slave who worked as a shepherd. After six years, he escaped; upon returning home, he received his call (in a dream) to preach the Gospel. He spent the next 15 or so years in a monastery, preparing for his missionary work. When he became a priest, his name was changed to Patricius, and eventually, Patrick. Although some Christians lived in Ireland at the time, it was Patrick who spread Christianity throughout the land and brought an organized church into existence.
