    Homemade macaroni and cheese with bacon here. I boiled some elbow macaroni in water and a little bacon grease to keep it from sticking together. I fried up about 1 1/2 pounds of bacon and drained it, then crumbled it all up. I diced up an onion and sauteed it in some of the leftover bacon grease and then added the crumbled bacon back to the onions. I poured in about a pint of heavy whipping cream and then melted in 1/2 brick of Velveeta cheese. Drained the macaroni and then added it to the cheese/cream/onion/bacon mixture. Buttered a baking pan and dumped the whole mix into it. Baked it at 350 for 1/2 hour, then added about a 2/3 pound of grated cheddar cheese to the top and broiled it on high about 5 minutes until the cheese started to brown. MMMM... Now *that* is macaroni and cheese. [​IMG]

    That looks like my kind of cookin'! I will say, you might need the number of the nearest heart doc, though!!LOL! But in my opinion, if it isn't fattening, what's the point of eating it?
