Winter Storm Mac & Cheese

Posted in Cooking with tags , , on December 29, 2012 by theredlass

Suffering through the snow dunes and frigid winter winds? Here is a little recipe to help stave off the chill.

1 lbs hickory smoked bacon
1 cup elbow macaroni
1 cup milk
1/2 cup chicken stock
2 cups cheese (extra sharp cheddar/pepper-jack/mozzarella)
flour
butter
salt
pepper
parsley

1) Cook the bacon till nice and crispy. Chop up and set aside but BE SURE to save the grease!
2) Cook the noodles AL-dente (still a wee bit firm) and rinse off.
3) While the noodles are draining, heat the grease lightly and sprinkle flour into the grease. Whisk till it is a smooth texture and add butter, salt, pepper and parsley.
4) Slowly start adding the cheese in small handfulls and whisk till it’s melting. Keep back a little bit for the toppers!
5) Start adding milk & chicken stock and whisking it in as you keep the heat low. Whisk briskly till it is a smooth, creamy texture. Add chopped bacon.
6) Stir in noodles thoroughly! Serve generously with a bit of cheese on top. Serve with crispy French bread and butter.

You will be perfectly content to sit and eat this till spring.
