We’re eating uber creamy baked sharp cheddar and muenster mac and cheese with smokey bacon, roasted garlic, and sweet caramelized onions topped with crunchy panko bread crumbs.
Recently I taped an episode of the Dr. Oz show for a segment entitled “Is Food Porn Making You Fat?”. If you’ve been a follower of this site for a while, you know that I a) run a food porn site and b) lost the equivalent of a supermodel in weight while writing the cookbook about food porn a few years ago. So is food porn making you fat? In my opinion, NO, staring at images of food will not make you fat… but if you make this mac & cheese everyday and don’t have the self control to only eat one portion – this recipe might! 😉 It’s so rich, creamy and loaded with flavor that you will have a hard time putting the fork down or not reaching for seconds. The first question my dinner partners asked after taking a bite was, “Is there crack in this?” Nope, no crack, I swear! Just good old creamy mac and cheese. (Though the bacon doesn’t hurt either.) 😉 If you think you’ve got the self-control to not devour the whole pan single-handedly, make this as a side for dinner and listen to the “mmm’s” that ensue. Buen provecho!
