Preparing homemade Mac & Cheese has been a no-brainier for many years in our home. With all of the dilemma about branded foods using food coloring in their Mac & Cheese products1, we have been sticking to a homemade version. But hey - I might still use food coloring here and there, although the more natural the better. The great thing is that making your own Mac & Cheese is as simple as preparing the "boxed" version.
To pamper it with a kick of flavor, I used smoked Gouda cheese and crispy pieces of bacon. With nicely baked crisp tops, this will become the best Mac & Cheese you have ever drooled over. And, say, if you're preparing this for kids - you will truly become their hero!
