How To Make Bacon Feta Macaroni and Cheese
Cook up a plate of this scrumptious macaroni and cheese dish! It’s loaded with crispy bacon and uses feta cheese for a more robust cheese flavor.
Cook the pasta according to package directions.
Drain well, then set aside.
In a medium saucepan, melt the butter, then whisk in the flour.
Cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
While whisking vigorously, slowly pour in the milk and whisk until well combined.
Bring the mixture to gentle boil, stirring constantly.
Reduce heat to low and simmer for 2 minutes, stirring frequently, until thickened.
Add ⅔ cup of feta cheese and provolone cheese to the milk mixture.
Cook over low heat, stirring constantly until the provolone has melted.
Season the mixture with salt and pepper to taste.
Add the drained pasta to the sauce mixture, then toss to coat.
Add ¾ of the diced bacon, then toss.
Pour the mixture into a buttered 11 x 7-inch baking dish.
Sprinkle the top evenly with the remaining diced bacon and feta cheese.
Move the oven rack three racks below the broiler, then set the oven to broil on high.
Cook the macaroni under the hot broiler for 1 to 3 minutes, until the feta cheese is golden brown.
Serve warm, and enjoy!
