I had some leftover bacon that my husband cooked up for breakfast. I was going to make mac cheese and decided to add the bacon to it.

We're not sure there are many flavors that pair better than bacon and cheese. The more cheese (and bacon) the better and this macaroni and cheese recipe is packed with both! We love the variety of cheeses... makes for creamy mac and cheese. The bacon adds a bit of a salty, smoky flavor that complements the cheesy goodness. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
