: 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.
