me: "Hey, how about mac and cheese for dinner?"
hubby: "that sounds ok."
me: "How about that mac and cheese with some bacon mi..."
hubby (interrupts): "YES!"
enough said. Did not even have to finish my sentence.
hubby loves anything with bacon. remember bacon brownies? His favorite. I mentioned maple-bacon popcorn the other night. He's been bugging me to make it ever since. It's on my to-make list. Along with a billion other things. I really need to find a bunch of people to give away treats to, because my favorite things to make are bread, cheesecakes, pies and other sweets. And heaven forbid we eat all these things (but sometimes we do). Ok so the mac and cheese.
First slice you up some onions. Every time I chop onions I hate my life because it hurts! It makes me cry and hurts my eyes. One day out of the blue (after hearing me yell out loud in the kitchen because my eyes were burning) hubby was like..."Hey dear you know if you light a candle next to you while cutting onions, that won't happen!" what?! I have been cooking for you-always with onions, for 2 and 1/2 years, and you are just now telling me this awesome tip?! Well, hubby was right. All you have to do is light a candle next to your cutting workspace, and the tears are gone! It's magical.
Caramelize those onions.
Next, fry you up some bacon. Not too crisp, but just until it is a almost all crispy.
Then, shred you up some cheese. I used 4 different kinds, feel free to experiment. I used goat cheese, sharp cheddar, gruyere, and parmesan.
Now just throw it all together with some bread crumbs on top and bake it.
Mmmm. So good and creamy. and cheesy. and bacon-y. and caramelized onion-y.
