Sweet and Salty Mac 'N' Cheese

Sweet and Salty Mac ‘n’ Cheese
(8 servings)


5 tbsp. Unsalted Butter
6 tbsp. All-Purpose Flour
3 cups Milk
2 cups Grated Parmesan Cheese
8 oz. Cream Cheese, cut up in small pieces
1 lb. Cooked Pasta (see note)
½ cup Honey
1 lb. Cooked Bacon, crumbled and divided


I a large sauce pan, melt butter over medium heat.  Add flour, whisking to combine and cook 2 minutes.  Slowly add milk while whisking after reducing heat to low.  Cook until it slightly thickens, about 5 minutes.  Add the parmesan and cream cheeses.  Whisk until fully melted and then combine with the pasta.  Remove from the heat and add honey and ¾ of the bacon stirring to mix.  Pour into a buttered 2½ qt. baking dish and top with remaining bacon.  Place in a pre-heated 350-degree oven for 20 minutes and then serve.

Note:               It’s your choice on the pasta shape you want to use in this recipe.  But there is more than just elbow macaroni out there.  Be inventive.
