Macaroni Cheese

This is a really tasty Macaroni cheese recipe, so if you are looking for something that is a bit more bland, you’re going to have to try a different recipe.
 

Ingredients

  • 500 g dry macaroni
  • 1 quantity of béchamel sauce
  • 1 onion, chopped finely
  • 150 g bacon, chopped
  • 2 1/2 C grated cheese, tasty is the best
  • 3-4 T sweet chili sauce (or 1 T of pepper sauce)
  • 1/3 c breadcrumbs (or wheetbix crumbs)

Method

  1. Put a large pot of water on to boil, once boiling add the macaroni and cook till al dente, drain
  2. Preheat oven to 180ºC, grease an oven-proof shallow dish
  3. In a saucepan fry off the onions and bacon until the onion is translucent and the bacon is cooked through and starting to go golden, set aside
  4. In the same saucepan (so you don’t waste any of that yummy bacony/oniony flavor) make a quantity of the bechamel sauce.  Make sure you taste the sauce, if you prefer more chili or seasoning, now is the time to add it.
  5. Once the sauce is done, add 1 cup of grated cheese, the chili sauce, bacon and onion and stir through
  6. If you pot is big enough tip the pasta into the sauce, if not, do it the other way around, stir through.
  7. Pour into the prepared baking dish and top with remaining cheese and sprinkle with breadcrumbs
  8. Bake in the oven for around 25 minutes, or until the top is golden brown.

Enjoy!
