Beer Bacon Mac and Cheese
The ultimate comfort food: Beer Bacon Mac and Cheese
By Donna Elick
Is there anything better than homemade macaroni and cheese?
Perhaps there is but when it comes to comfort food it’s at the top of the list. Its an all around favorite, my husband, my 3 year old and I are all nuts for homemade mac and cheese. This favorite recipe is ready in 25 minutes and has enough flavor to even keep the adults begging for more.
This super cheesy mac and cheese starts with bacon cooked in a skillet and this magical cheese sauce is created out of the bacon drippings. Your favorite beer is cooked right into the mixture and smoked paprika and ground chile de arbol are added in.
These flavors result in a restaurant quality mac and cheese unlike anything that you have had before. Its ready in less than half an hour.
Bacon, beer and cheese happen to be one of my favorite flavor combinations.
The cooked beer imparts a very distinctive flavor that you cannot get with any other ingredient. Some of our favorite all-time dishes were created using this flavor profile.
The recipe is here.
