Creamy Baked Macaroni & Cheese

Baked Bacon Macaroni & Cheese

Rice Pasta Macaroni and Cheese with bacon! Who says gluten free cant be delicious? I think it’ll go brilliantly with the slow smoked baby back ribs, scalloped potatoes and fried cabbage! It’s almost dinner time!

Baked Bacon Macaroni & Cheese

• 5 C cooked Elbow Pasta (I used rice pasta)
• 1/2 C Butter
• 4 Tbsp Flour (I used gluten a free blend)
• 2 C Whole Milk
• 1 Tbsp Onion Powder
• 1 Tbsp Garlic Powder
• 1 Tbsp Italian Herbs
• 1 C Sharp Cheddar
• 1 C Medium Cheddar
• 1/2 C Parmesan
• 1 C Mozzarella
• 1/2 block Cream Cheese
• 1/2 C Pepper Jack Cheese
• 1 C Bacon Crumbles
• Salt and Pepper to taste
• 1 C Italian Breadcrumbs

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2. In large skillet, heat butter over medium heat. Once melted, add in flour, herbs, salt and pepper; cooking until golden brown. Slowly whisk in milk to form a roux.
3. Add in cheeses and stir constantly until thoroughly melted; adding more milk if it becomes too thick.
4. Fold in pasta and bacon then add to a greased baking dish. Sprinkle with breadcrumbs and cover with foil.
5. Place in preheated oven and bake for 45 minutes. Remove the foil and bake an additional 15 minutes.
6. Allow to cool for 5 minutes, serve and enjoy!
