Macaroni and Cheese

Macaroni and Cheese ranks as one of the all time favourite comfort foods and is a cinch to make, however it’s one of those meals I don’t make very often and when I do, I thoroughly enjoy it, and is usually a meal for evenings when I have been out or busy the whole day and just never got as far as planning supper.


Macaroni and Cheese


250g macaroni or pasta of choice
1 onion sliced
4 rashers bacon diced
80ml butter

  1. I know, I’m the same – good old mac ‘n cheese is something I too adore, so comforting, memories of kids & another time, but it still tastes heavenly done right πŸ™‚

  2. My kiddies love macaroni and cheese. As a child, I could eat this for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and still want more the next day. Definitely a favorite comfort food of mine.
