: HOW TO :
1.Add oil to the pan and soften
chopped onions, add garlic and cook through for couple of minutes. Add your
Bacon and cook until crisp.
2.Bring a pan of salted water to
the boil and add Macaroni.
   3.In the mean time you can make
your cheese sauce, simply add a knob of butter to a pan and let it melt fully,
be careful not to burn it! Pop in your flour and cook through for a minute
constantly stirring. Once combined add in your milk and keep whisking making
sure all the lumps have gone and it starts to thicken. Once thick grate in your
cheese and season to taste. I like my sauce very cheesy and use lots of cheese
but if you want it subtler it’s entirely up to you how much you add.

   4. Once the Macaroni has cooked,
drain and pop into the same pan the Bacon and Onions are in and mix it all
together. Pour in the cheese sauce until everything is coated, pop into an ovenproof
dish and cover with a scattering of breadcrumbs, bung it under the grill until
the breadcrumbs have turned golden brown in colour.katecooks, katecooksrecipes, macaroni cheese, macaroni cheese 3 ways, mac and cheese, easy mac and cheese, mac and cheese 3 ways, cooking, food photography, food styling, katelouiseblog, katecooks, katecooksrecipes, macaroni cheese, macaroni cheese 3 ways, mac and cheese, easy mac and cheese, mac and cheese 3 ways, cooking, food photography, food styling, katelouiseblog, katecooks, katecooksrecipes, macaroni cheese, macaroni cheese 3 ways, mac and cheese, easy mac and cheese, mac and cheese 3 ways, cooking, food photography, food styling, katelouiseblog,

    5.Remove from grill mix in your
preferred additions, I’ve chosen Kale and Chorizo but you could add pretty much
anything (within reason) making a big dish of basic Mac & Cheese allows you
to add in your favorites afterwards, that way everyone your feeding is happy
and you’ve got Mac & Cheese 3 Ways.
