Mac and cheese, the ultimate winter comfort-food dish, is made even more rib-sticking with the addition of smoky bacon and hearty greens.
Make it Your Own: Use the Macaroni and Cheese Recipe Maker to create a recipe with the pasta, cheeses, spices, herbs, meats, and vegetables you love.
Start the meal with simple Garden Lettuces with Garlic Chapons, and if there’s still room for dessert after the macaroni and cheese, try the Oranges in Cardamom Syrup with Honey Whipped Cream.
For individual servings: choose small baking dishes that hold 1-1/2 to 2 cups each. You can fill them to within about 1/2 inch of the rim. The number of servings will, of course, depend on the volume of your baking dishes.
Yum! I have kale growing in my garden so I tore up about 16 cups of fresh kale (Loose cups). I sauteed this up and then chopped it, and it gave me 2 cups of sauteed chopped kale. I used Fontina and Guyere and Parmesean in the cheese sauce and farm fresh bacon. I did put the garlic in the bread crumbs and added a tad more parmesean to this mixture. Perfection! Thanks for this great recipe! Note Oct 2016 made this again with mozzarella and some smoked cheddar and it turned out really good as well.
This was great. I used sharp cheddar instead of Cantal, and couldn't tell the difference. I also microwaved the bacon because I was in a hurry. Quite the expedient and filling weekday meal!
