When regular mac and cheese doesn't do it for you anymore, just add bacon! This Southern-style bacon mac and cheese is the quintessential comfort food. You crumble up crispy bacon and bake it inside a 3-cheese mac and cheese casserole topped with crunchy breadcrumbs. It's the perfect soulful side dish to serve with almost any meal or to impress your friends when you bring it to a potluck supper.
The recipe below calls for a blend of cheddar, Monterey Jack, and Parmesan cheeses, although you could also substitute mozzarella or a nutty alpine-style cheese. The combination of creamy cheeses, perfectly-cooked macaroni pasta and the crispy, smoky bacon bits will guarantee this dish will not last long!
