Ingredients

Directions

Bake Loveless Peppered bacon according to package instructions, cool and chop into small pieces. Preheat the oven to 375 F. Cook the elbow macaroni in a stockpot of boiling salted water. For creamy mac n’ cheese, be sure to cook the pasta until limp, not al dente. Pour the macaroni into a large rectangle baking dish. In a heavy saucepan heat the butter over medium heat. Add the flour and stir to make a roux and stir until very lightly browned. Heat the milk in another heavy bottom pan over medium heat and whisk in the roux and bring to a boil to thicken the sauce. Add the salt, cayenne and cheeses and remove from heat. Blend well until all cheese is dissolved. Add the cooked chopped bacon reserving ¼ cup for garnish on top when you remove from oven. Pour over the cooked macaroni and mix well. Cook for 10-15 minutes and serve.
