Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Stir in the rotini, and return to a boil. Cook until the pasta is slightly under-cooked, about 8 minutes. Drain well.
  3. Combine the processed cheese, tomato juice, and butter in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir until melted and smooth. Mix the pasta into the cheese sauce; stir well. Transfer macaroni and cheese to the prepared baking dish. Top with the raw bacon slices.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until the bacon is cooked and crisped, about 30 minutes.

This is macaroni and cheese as I grew up with. Very delicious! The only thing is, the bacon doesn't really crisp up too well when cooked as the recipe states. The thing to do is to half-fry the bacon first, then lay it on top and cook as the recipe states. It will get perfectly crisp and will be much easier to portion out if you do it this way.

This is a well loved staple in my house. I've made it both ways by putting the bacon on top and chopping it and mixing it in with the rest on the mixture...I definately prefer it on top of the dish. I also add some garlic and chili powder. I will make this again and again...SO GOOD.
