Bacon and Jalapeno Mac “N” Cheese

Serves 8 to 10Ingredients
200g short cut bacon, cooked and cooled
150g butter
1 1/4 cups plain flour
500g mixed cheeses, grated plus extra
Jalapenos, sliced amount depends on your preference I used 4 whole green ones.
2.5l whole milk
Salt and pepper to taste
500g pack macaroniMethod
Boil the macaroni as per packet instructions.
To make the sauce, in a large saucepan melt the butter and add the flour. Whisking constantly to avoid lumps. Add the milk a little at a time until the sauce is smooth thickened and lump free. Add more milk if it is a little thick.
Remove from the heat add the cheese, jalapenos and chop the bacon and add it in.
Stir well and season.
Drain the macaroni and retain a little of the water.
Pour the macaroni into the sauce and stir well.
Pour into your baking trays, grated extra cheese on top and bake for 5 to 10 minutes until the cheese has melted and it is heated all the way through.This is a very forgiving dish, so add more milk or flour at the start if needed. Whisking continuously is a MUST.Eat as a treat, soooo many calories in here, but boy is it worth them all!
Enjoy 😋😍
