Beer Bacon Mac and Cheese

Ingredients

  • 12 ounces of sliced bacon cooked and diced into bite size pieces
  • 1 pound macaroni pasta
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 8 ounces of beer
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 2 cups shredded American cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Fontiago cheese or a mixture of Fontina and Asiago - if you can't find it already blended

Instructions

  • Bring a pot of water to boil. Then add in pasta and cook as directed.
  • Heat saucepan over medium high heat and add butter. Once melted add in flour. Continuously whisk until it becomes golden in color - about 2 minutes.
  • Add beer and milk into the saucepan slowly. Turn down the heat and allow to cook for about 6-8 minutes while stirring occasionally.
  • Slowly add in cheese about 1/2 cup at a time. Once fully melted then add in next batch of cheese. Then add in the bacon and stir.
  • Put cooked macaroni into a dish and pour the cheese sauce over and stir until fully incorporated.
