Bacon Mac N’ 4 Cheese Pie

Yes you heard right. Bacon Mac N’ 4 Cheese Pie.

This is the kind of pie that you dream up when you’ve stayed up way too late at night.

This is the kind of pie you dream ABOUT when you haven’t eaten solid foods in two weeks due to stupid wisdom teeth surgery.

This is the pie dreams are made of.

Bacon Mac N’ 4 Cheese Pie

Ingredients

Crust

  • 1 1/2 cups italian flavored breadcrumbs
  • 4 Tbsp melted butter

Filling

  • 1 cup uncooked macaroni pasta
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 5 strips crumbled bacon
  • 1/2 caramelized sweet onion, rough chopped
  • 1 cup cream
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 2 cups of shredded cheese…I blended Kerrygold Aged Cheddar & Aged Cheddar With Irish Whiskey, extra sharp cheddar and Gruyere cheeses
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 Tbsp flour
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese for the topping

Directions

Mix together melted butter and breadcrumbs. Press into pie pan. Bake at 350°F for 5 minutes. Take out and set aside to cool. Turn oven up to 375°F

Cook macaroni, strain, stir in butter. Set aside.

Heat milk, cream in a medium sauce pan over a low-medium heat. Stir in cheeses and let them melt. Stir in thyme, garlic, salt, pepper, caramelized onions, bacon crumbles. Pour cheese sauce into macaroni thoroughly. Pour mixture into breadcrumb crust. Sprinkle remaining cheese over the top. 

Bake for 20 minutes or until cheese starts to get brown and bubbly. Let cool for at least 15 minutes before digging in (if you can help it).
