Bacon mac and cheese is one of the greatest comfort foods I have ever had. As a matter of fact, it has to be one of the worlds most favorites. I have so very fond memories of it when I was growing up and I suppose you do too.
It can be really elevated in many ways, however. One of my most favorite ways is to vary the cheese I use, add some extra spices. And, of course, the icing on the cake, some bacon. It is certainly a must try my friends.
