  • Step 1

    Bring water in a pot to a boil. Cook the macaroni as directed on the box. Once cooked, make the base by adding the butter and flour into a different pot on medium heat. Whisk until thick. Then add the milk slowly and whisk again until it has completely thickened.

    Add the cheese until melted. Once completed, add the macaroni to the sauce base. At this time, you can either chop up the cooked bacon into smaller pieces and mix throughout the macaroni, or weave the pieces together & save them for later.

    Inside a ramekin, pour the mac n' cheese in first, followed by the layer of cooked hash browns and extra cheese. If you weaved your bacon together, place it on top. Put in oven for about 5-10 minutes, or until crisp on top.
