Loaded Bacon Mac and Cheese Recipe



If you're a loaded baked potato lover, this recipe is for you!
Just like a loaded baked potato this is a comfort favorite food using pasta with the same flavors throughout this mac and cheese recipe. It full of all the same ingredients but in a
delicious cheesy pasta sauce!




 Loaded Bacon Mac and Cheese Recipe

1 lb small sea shell pasta cooked al dente and drained
2 cups shredded extra sharp cheddar and more for the top 
1 cup milk or half and half
1/4 cup blue cheese crumbles
1/2 cup sour cream 
3 tablespoons whipped cream cheese
1/4 cup or more crispy cooked bacon crumbled
butter
salt pepper to taste
1 teaspoon granulated garlic

Optional: 1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs or butter crackers crushed for the top

Boil the pasta, drain. Add to a deep dish baking pan around 13x9. Heat 2 cups milk, cheeses, garlic, 3 tablespoons butter, sour cream and cream cheese in a large saucepan stir until melted. Pour over the pasta, sprinkle with more cheese on top, then crumbled bacon, more cheese. Bake until bubbly and set. If using crumbs add the on top.  I broil the top of mine for crispier  cheese pasta, that's how we like ours.
