Weekend Cooking – Macaroni Cheese with Bacon & Mushrooms

Last week someone showed a recipe for Macaroni Cheese and I thought I had not made it for ages. So, I had some Macaroni in the cupboard and cooking commenced!

  • Add macaroni  to a saucepan of boiling water. I always add a plop of olive oil to the water.
  • Chopped up some mushrooms add to a pan
  • Cut up 8 slices of bacon and add the mushrooms. 
  • Add a little salt and pepper
  • Once cooked add the bacon and mushroom to a lasagne dish. 
  • Drain off macaroni and add to lasagne dish
  • Pour cheese sauce over the macaroni, bacon and mushroom mix
  • Give a stir round and sprinkle with grated cheese and a little ground pepper 
  • Into Oven for about 15 minutes or until nice and brown

Cheese Sauce  – all into a saucepan!
  1. One and half tablespoonfuls of plain flour
  2. Around 2oz of butter
  3. 1pint of milk (or half milk and half water)
  4. Salt and Pepper
  5. Add to the hob and stir furiously
  6. Add grated cheese  – depending on how cheesy you like it!
