How to Make Bacon Smoked Cheddar Mac & Cheese
No processed cheese food product is in this recipe. I’m about being real. Nothing makes amazing mac & cheese like real cheese. My grandmother used to make home baked mac & cheese with real cheese and whole milk. It was AMAZING. Oh, how we used to look forward to her mac & cheese! It was rich, creamy, and has that perfect brown cheesy crusty baked edge that is so good. I think she’d be pleased with my interpretation of her recipe.
A Great Make-Ahead Meal
This dish is perfect for making ahead. Just prepare it up to the point of putting it in the oven. Then, instead of baking it, cover the pan with aluminum foil and place it in the refrigerator until you’re ready to bake it. It’s also a very portable dish to take to potlucks and family gatherings.
