Loaded Mac and Cheese (FWF Inspired)

Loaded Mac and Cheese

Hey every! I decided to make a recipe inspired by the Loaded Mac n’ Cheese with Nueske’s Pepper Bacon, Cheddar Cheese, Peppers, and Green Onions from the Farm Fresh booth at Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival. I do not know the exact recipe, but I decided to try to make my own version of it.

I looked at this recipe as a reference (I’ve never made baked mac and cheese before): http://www.thebudgetdiet.com/southern-baked-macaroni-and-cheese

What you will need:

  • 16 ounces of elbow pasta
  • 4 ounces of cream cheese
  • 4 cups of cheddar and monterey jack cheese (shredded)

  • Smoked Applewood bacon
  • Green onions
  • Salt and pepper to taste

What you will need to do:

  1. Cook elbow pasta as directed and preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (I added some salt and olive oil to the boiling water)
  2. Drain the pasta and put the pasta back into the sauce pan
  3. Add in only three cups of the cheese
  4. Add in the milk, butter, and cream cheese and mix
  5. Put the pasta into a baking dish and add the breadcrumbs over top and bake for 30 minutes
  6. Cook the bacon and break them into bits
  7. Chop the green onions into thin slices
  8. When the 30 minutes are done, add in one cup of the remaining shredded cheese, bacon bits, and sliced green onions over top

Super easy to do and it is delicious! This reminds me of the loaded mac and cheese I had at the Food and Wine Festival! So if you have been missing it, now you can make your own! Also, I obviously had to wear this shirt while I was making this. Hehe. Have a great day everyone!mac-and-cheese-6
