BRRR!!!!! It was cold today. It was the perfect day to make some nice comforting Mac and Cheese. But this time, it had a twist! I added bacon and cayenne pepper to make some really amazing Spicy Bacon Mac and Cheese.
Take my regular Homemade Mac and Cheese and do the following:
- Saute 10 pieces of bacon with the onions. Proceed with the rest of the recipe.
- When everything is done and combined, stir in 1/2 to 1 tsp of cayenne pepper, depending on your taste.
Are you looking for a fun little hors d’ouevres for the holidays? Take two cups or so of your mac and cheese, stir in a beaten egg and bake it in a mini muffin tin at 375 for 15 minutes. Spicy Bacon Mac and Cheese Bites! Yum!
I usually use sharp cheddar in my mac and cheese because that’s what my family likes. You can add other cheeses. This would be great with a horseradish cheddar or gruyere. Try your family favorites.
