How to Make Beer Mac and Cheese

Step-by-Step

  1. Sautee bacon until crisp. While waiting for a large pot of salted water to boil.
  2. Once water is boiling, add the noodles and cook until just before done about 6 to 8 minutes. Don't over-cook the noodles or this will end up mushy. Drain pasta and pour back into large pot.
  3. In a separate sauce pan, add the beer, egg and sour cream, beat until well combined. Heat on medium heat - add butter. Stir until the butter has melted.
    About 1/4 a cup at a time, add the cheese. Stir until cheese has melted before adding more.
    Add the spices and chopped bacon, stir. Pour over pasta and stir to combine.
  4. NOTE - I usually start step 3 after bacon is finished and still waiting for water to boil.
