    Creamy Bacon Mac and Cheese

    Just made this tonight for dinner, it was a success! My eight year old loved it, had two servings! I doubled the recipe and baked in two loaf pans. I used a little extra cheese and extra bread crumbs, just personal preference. Next time I will definitely add some real bacon. I think this is a perfect recipe when you're running short on time, simple and quick!

    So good

    I have made this recipe many times and love it! I add almost an extra cup of cheese though and a bit more breadcrumbs. Also I just tried it for the first time today using gnocchi and it was soooo good!

    Bacon cheeseburger shells

    I used this recipe but instead of just a mac and cheese, I used extra large noodles stuffed with cheeseburger style groundbeef baked in the dish topped with extra cheese.

    I didn't have the recommended cheese, so I used Walmart's own brand shredded light/medium cheddar, parmesan and mozzarella mix. I used a bit more cheese then the recipe calls for and added extra bacon bits. I will definitely will be making it again and I would recommend it!
