Bohemian Macaroni and Cheese

Bohemian Macaroni and Cheese

Rob

This is a great way to spruce up macaroni and cheese into a complete meal! Try using imitation bacon bits, if the real stuff is not readily available in your refrigerator.

Didn't everyone's Mom make this for their children at some point during their childhood? It may not be high-class cooking but it's pure comfort food at it's simplest. I suggest you saute the bell pepper and onion with a little garlic in a bit of the bacon grease and toss that with the cooked macaroni and cheese before adding the milk and butter. Then, throw in whatever cheese you have on hand in the mix and a little on top and you've got a heck of a meal!

We thought this was really GREAT! I made as written with the exception of cooking the onions and green pepper slightly before adding to the rest of the ingredients. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy making my homemade mac and cheese, but we also are fans of 'the blue box', and this was a great way to dress it up! I think next time I may add either some shredded cheddar or buttered breadcrumbs to the top before baking, just because. This will definately be made again! Thanks for sharing. :)

Although the ingredients list is short, this dish was not as simple as I thought it would be. But it is tasty! I sauteed the bell pepper and onion in the bacon grease before adding to the macaroni and added italian bread crumbs to the top. Makes great leftovers too.
