1. Mac and Cheese with a Crispy Pork Topping
This recipe takes mac and cheese to the next level with a crispy pork topping. The dish will surely be a hit with your family and friends, and it’s pretty easy to make. Start by cooking some bacon in a large skillet. Once it’s crispy, please remove it from the pan and set it aside on a paper towel-lined plate.
Next, cook the pork in the bacon grease until it’s browned. Once it’s cooked through, add it to the bacon and set it aside. Then, you’ll need to make the cheese sauce. This is made with roux, milk, cheddar cheese, and seasoning.
Once the sauce is thick and creamy, add the cooked pasta and bacon-pork mixture. Stir everything together until it’s well combined, then transfer it to a baking dish. Top with some additional cheddar cheese and bake it in the oven until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Yum!
2. Mac and Cheese with Shell Pasta
This recipe uses shell pasta instead of the traditional elbow macaroni. The shells hold onto the cheese sauce better, giving you more flavor in every bite. Plus, they look so darn cute!
To make this dish, cook the shell pasta according to the package directions. While it’s cooking, you’ll need to make the cheese sauce. This is made with a roux, milk, cheddar cheese, and seasoning.
Once the sauce is thick and creamy, add the cooked pasta and stir until it’s well combined. Then, transfer it to a baking dish and add some additional cheddar cheese. Bake it in the oven until the cheese is melted and bubbly. So good!
