Blount Culinary Corner: Spicy Mac & Cheese w/ Bacon

Cold has descended across the country and pro football playoffs are in full swing, so it felt like a good time to visit comfort food in the Blount Culinary Corner.  Here is a simple recipe for making bone-warming spicy mac & cheese.  The recipe can be scaled up or down, allowing you to feed just you, or a house filled with crazy football fans.

Ingredients needed:

  • Mac & cheese (already prepared)
  • Bacon (diced and cooked crisp)
  • A touch of minced jalapeno peppers (amount depends on how hot you like it)

Directions

  • Begin with heated mac & cheese.
  • Add diced bacon and the appropriate amount of jalapenos for desired spiciness.
  • Mix and place in a casserole dish.
  • Garnish with extra bacon and a few slices of jalapeno.
  • Bake in a 350-degree convection over until slightly brown (about 5-10 minutes depending on the depth of your serving container).
