I Put Bacon in It

Eating too much will give you
A heart attackackackackackack

bacaroni

The above picture created quite a stir on my Facebook page recently, so I thought I’d better share it with you. Plus, 2009 has been a rough year so far, with all the earwax and eargasms, so what better way to make it up to you than with . . .

BACON!

Specifically, Bacaroni and Cheese! Now with Smell-o-Vision! Because you can smell it, right? Oh, I know you can. You can taste it too, I’ll bet. Yes, it’s cheesy. Yes, it’s bacony. Yes, it may kill you, but isn’t death by bacon more dignified than, say, having a heart attack shoveling snow?

I cook one night a week for Dave—something he can stretch out for 4 to 5 days. Between my lack of kitchen skillz and Dave’s lack of imagination, the supper repertoire is fairly limited. One of the long-time favorites? Macaroni and cheese.

For a while, I was making what I like to call “Macarena and Cheese,” which called for Mexican Velveeta. But the stores stopped selling this ethnic delight, so it was back to the ol’ regular kind.

Recently, Dave has begun requesting bacon in everything I cook for him. Bacon in the quiche, bacon in the fajitas, bacon in the stir-fry. And oh, yes. Bacon in the macaroni and cheese.

Some of you may argue that bacon goes well with everything. I question the inclusion of bacon in such things as candy bars and fajitas, but Dave is adamant. “Put bacon in it.” So I do. I’d like Dave to live into his 50s at least, but who am I to argue? When it comes to bacon, there’s just no point.

(And before you start questioning my allegiance to bacon, please check this out.)

So that is how Bacaroni and Cheese came to be invented. No, Pizza Hut, I’m pretty sure I invented it.

If You Want to Shorten Your Husband’s Life with Bacaroni and Cheese
  • Mke a white sauce of butter, flour, and milk. I use about 1/3 cup each of butter and flour and 2 1/2 cups of milk.
  • Add seasoning (black pepper, cayenne pepper, minced onion, and a dash of worcestererestershire). Microwave for 3 minutes, stir, repeat until thick.
  • Meanwhile boil a bunch of elbow macaroni (or rotini, but elbows are more traditional).
  • Chop up a block of Velveeta, and when the sauce is thick, dump it in and heat again to melt cheese. Stir until smooth.
  • Chop up some bacon (I use the ready-cooked kind). Add the bacon to the sauce and dump it all over the macaroni. Bake for about 45 minutes at 350.
  • Optional: saute a block of butter and add a mess of breadcrumbs. Sprinkle butter-ensoaked breadcrumbs over the top.
  • Serve with a green vegetable and gastric bypass kit.

I tried making a healthy version with skim milk, lite Velveeta, lite butter, and whole wheat macaroni. With no bacon. Needless to say, it sucked.

    You’re killing me! I brought no lunch again today and I cleaned my desk of every edible morsel the last time I saw this on Facebook! Thank goodness my sinuses are preventing me from smelling it via Smell-o-Vision.

    Why, why, oh WHY don’t they make bacon flavored cat food?

    Actually, I’m pretty sure I invented bacaroni and cheese, though you’ve got me on a technicality, since we don’t actually call it that. Good, though, ain’t it? ;)

    Oh yes, the mac and cheese with bacon (ok ok don’t hurt me) BACARONI and cheese is an awesome dish.

    I’m with Dave, bacon goes with everything.

    Bippity, boppity, BACON! (That’s what you say when you have a magic wand and you use it to magically put bacon into or on everything!–Or, at least that’s what Jim Gaffigan says…)
    I just made homemade green beans cooked in bacon grease and then topped with the crunched-up bacon! Mmmmmmmm….(and I just ate a bacon breakfast burrito) In other words, I’m with ya’ on the bacon-love!

    I am going to try your recipe, too. When you say a “block” of Velveeta, is that the one pound block?

  7. 7 Puglette

    wow! I love bacon!! I have never tried it with mac and cheese…hubby is not a fan of the velveeta cheesyness. i may have to use a substitute cheese. i am curious, what do you eat on the nights dave has leftovers?
    happy friday!
    hugs,

    I make mine much the same way, starting with a white sauce, but I don’t put butter in it and use a combination of sharp cheddar and parmesan cheeses. I’m going to adapt your spices, though, because they sound delish. I never thought about putting the worcestershire sauce in it. Yums.

    As for the bacon…himself is training for a Marathon, so I don’t want to be the one who causes a brother to stumble so maybe I’ll make it for him as a ‘You Did It!’ meal. Y’ know, when he’s all sore and stiff and wants carbs.

    Mexican Velveeta rocks! If my store stopped carrying it, I would have to go to another store. Luckily in Minnesota, the land of hot dish, that isn’t likely to happens since it’s a staple up there with a great Minnesota product….SPAM. Yes, we have a shorter shelf life here but we are likely to suffer from a heart attack while shoveling all the g-damn snow that befalls us.

    I love home-made macaroni and cheese, though I detest (personal preference) any kind of processed cheese, including velveeta (except for one thing). I use cheddars, Colby and Monterrey Jack. It’s not as smooth, but yum! We’ve taken to including broccoli and either pepperoni or sausage in our mac and cheese, though bacon would be good, too.

    Unfortunately, I can’t have any right now, but it’s wonderful to think about it.

    Your attempt at making a healthy version was blasphemous! That’s like trying to make healthy Jack in the Box Bacon Cheddar Potato Wedges. Some foods should NOT be messed with!

  16. 16 JD

    Jackie! Whee! Thanks for visiting my blog. I’m sorry that coming here has left you frustrated and hungry, tho. There’s really no escaping Bacaroni and Cheese.

    Daisy the Curly Cat: You should write a letter! That is an outrageous omission. Cats love bacon! What would be so hard about making bacon-flavored cat food?

    Jay: Oh, yeah. And I have a feeling I’m not the first to come up with the combo. Still, I may have to trademark the name.

    April: I have to draw the line at some things. But macaroni and cheese is the perfect home to bacon.

    mlm: Jim Gaffigan! YES! I’ve seen that routine, and it’s hilarious. Ohhhh. Those green beans sound awesome. My aunt used to make fried eggs in bacon grease . . . actually, that sounds easy enough for even me to make!

    And, yes. The 1-lb block. Enjoy! Let me know how it turns out.

    Puglette: Oh, I’m sure you can substitute any other kind of cheese for Velveeta and it would be good. I have a recipe from a Betty Crocker cookbook for kids that calls for Campbell’s cheese soup. That might be good. Dave and I eat at different times, so my suppers are completely different. In other words, I rarely eat Bacaroni. I try to eat sensibly during the week and then pig out on weekends. By then, the Bacaroni is all gone.

    Shieldmaiden96: I accidentally added balsamic vinegar instead of worstererererershire the last time I made it, and I honestly couldn’t taste the difference. This would make an excellent Reward Dinner. You’re a good wifey!

    absepa: There is probably nothing as comforting and B&C. I wish I could send you some. Eating a salad on a cold day is not conducive to happiness.

    Unfinished Rambler: What? Not even as a Reward Meal when you’re done with your marathon? (See above.)

    Broadway Matron: Oh, yes. They were made for each other. I want some right now, but it’s all gone. Sniff.

    Just Sayin: I know. It was stupid and crazy and foolish. I don’t know what came over me. Some dishes aren’t meant to be low-fat.

    Jen: I personally was not a big fan of the Mexican velveeta. I like hot and spicy food, but . . . I dunno. Maybe it was the mysterious flecks in the cheese. What are those flecks?

    Stephanie Barr: I like broccoli in my mac and cheese too. Also hot dogs. I’ve never tried pepperoni or sausage (Sssh! Don’t tell Dave about the pepperoni). So what DO you use Velveeta for? (I only ever use it for mac & cheese.)

    Jeff: I know, I know. I’m ashamed. And now I’m hungry for Bacon Cheddar Potato Wedges. And we don’t have a Jack in the Box nearby!

    That looks delish! Another variation on that would be to add tuna and corn to it. That’s tasty! (But you have to use the blue box macaroni..you know, Kraft?)

    “….you ought to know by now.” Yeah, I remember Billy Joel.

    Okay, I know the crowd will turn on me, but I have to confess…..I do not like bacon. Gasp! I hate how the house smells after I make it–it seems to linger for hours. Ick. It tastes okay, but the smell isn’t worth it to me. My family hates me for that. Rest assured though, that they get their bacon fix when we go camping. I like it then–you can’t stink up a whole forest with bacon. I also think bacon is a guy thing, although I don’t know why. They would wrap their weinies in bacon if they could (and I don’t mean hot dogs).

    Here in the South, we have created many uses for Velveeta (which my stinky-cheese-loving, cheese-snob sister refers to as “that redneck cheese”). My favorite is this: cut up a block into cubes, melt in the microwave, and mix in a jar of salsa. It makes an absolutely yummy queso dip for tortilla chips.

    hey JD,

    I’m surprised you could find any bacon to put into it. I thought Kathy over at the Junk Drawer had bought up all the bacon…

    And I’m surprised you didn’t put any mini-cereal-marshmallows in it…

    Anyway, I’m glad that you realized and several commenters above confirmed anything that is “healthy” or “low fat” or “good for you” probably shouldn’t be eaten…

    In any event, your recipe sounds delicious. Thanks for sharing. And I’ll have seconds please…

    mac and cheese is my favorite meal, yes it’s a meal and not a side dish.

    of course my mac and cheese has to be pure, unadulterated.

    i could still eat it though, but my pig has to be caught on the beach in 100 degree weather without its sunblock lotion. that’s diner talk for make the bacon crispy. maybe i could sprinkle some bacon on top and then mix it in.

    Velveeta is used for chile con queso at my house and that’s pretty much it. My children eat the powdered mac and cheese by choice, which scares me a little, and my son likes “American” cheese for reasons that escape me for grilled cheese sandwiches. But we go through POUNDS of the good stuff every month.

    I LOOOOOVE bacon. I told Kathy at Junk Drawer this, but I’ll tell you. On my 33rd birthday a few months ago, I had a “There Will Be Bacon” party (with evite) in which we served breakfast for dinner, complete with mimosas. And lots and lots of bacon. It was not a good place to be Jewish or Muslim.

    And I thought you opened a box of Kraft Mac ‘n Cheese and threw down some bacon.

    I have to say you lost me at make a white sauce. But it looks tasty and I’d surely eat it, and seconds, at your house.

    Mmm, bacon.

  29. 29 Kathy

    I’ve been avoiding your blog because I have not had access to bacon since you posted it and I didn’t want to punish myself. But since I just had Weis Extra Thick Cut bacon on my fabulous tiny bacon ‘n cheese w/mayo no-pesky-burger sandwich, I am now safe to return. Is there no greater thing than a belly full of bacon? I think not.

    I have just one question about the recipe — how much is a block of butter? I do enjoy my creamy goodness coated with butter-ensoaked breadcrumbs (a casserole is not a casserole without it). If you mean a whole stick of butter, I think you are trying to kill your husband and you probably shouldn’t publicly admit that because it won’t look good in a court of law.

    p.s. Something is wrong with Lin. I think she needs to see a specialist.

    As you likely know, you can also substitute more bacon for the cheese and noodles. This looks FANTASTIC! I am so making this. You know – to my knowledge the B.I.L.F. shirt you one was the only one ever made – you could have a collectors’ item on your hands. I had actually forgotten all about them until going through the comments the other day. CHEERS!

    YUM! I’ll have to make that some day when I’m not busy….
    Bacoroni and cheese? How could it get any better? Definatly NOT with bacon candy bars or Diet Coke flavored with bacon.
    Some things just make bacon look bad…

  32. 32 JD

    Wayne John: Mmm. I love tuna in mac and cheese, but I think I’d substitue peas for the corn. Tho I love corn. So many choices! And, yes, I do love the good old blue box. I used to make that with chopped up carrots, celery, and onion and then add ranch dressing.

    Lin: I hoped at least ONE person would get that Billy Joel ref! “My family hates me for that.” Oh, no. That’s not fair! I do love the bacon aroma, but I can see how it could be a turn-off. Anything fried can gross you out after a bit. HA! They would wrap their weinies in bacon, wouldn’t they? OK, I’m gonna leave it at that.

    absepa: Oh, yeah. I’d forgotten about that. That is some good stuff. Or substitute the salsa with chili. Ain’t nothin’ wrong with some good ol’ redneck cheese.

    Trade Show Booths Guru: I keep a secret stash of bacon that Kathy doesn’t know about. She has control of the “More Bacon” button and usually does hog it all. I’m surprisingly picky about my cereal marshmallows. For example, I have Corn Pops cereal this weekend, and decided that was not a good match. I have yet to try them in hot chocolate, either. So far, only Rice Krispies and Froot Loops have made the grade. Actually, I’ll be glad when those cereal marshmallows are gone.

    Natural: Is there ANYone who doesn’t like macaroni and cheese? I love your way of saying “crispy bacon.” Is that how you order it in a restaurant? I’m going to try it next time (except I like my bacon near-raw). Yes, definitely cook your bacon separately and then add it in. Otherwise it will be a little chewy.

    chat blanc: Mmmm. Begginroni! They say Beggin’ Strips DO taste like real bacon. To dogs. But that’s a minor issue. If I couldn’t get Bacaroni and Cheese, I’d be right there alongside you, licking the bowl of Begginroni and Cheese.

    Stephanie Barr: I love all kinds of cheese, even the Kraft singles (the BEST cheese for grilled cheese—your son has good taste!) and Kraft macaroni. My husband douses anything cheesy with that powdered bright orange “cheese food.” But I love the good stuff, too. The only cheese I’m not crazy about is anything blue or veined.

    Father Muskrat: That sounds heavenly. I love the idea of a There Will Be Bacon party. May I steal it? My birthday is coming up, and I don’t think any of my Jewish or Muslim friends would be too offended.

    Prefers Her Fantasy Life: Uh oh. Well, I can’t really recommend the low-fat version, so maybe you’re better off admiring the B&C from afar.

    Corrina: Let me know if she makes it! It’s pretty easy (I hate cooking, too) and oh, so worth it. And it’s good cold. Or on a sandwich (so I’m told).

    flit: YES! There is still a need for Velveeta. Granted, I only use it for M&C, but a lot of people use it in dips or other recipes. I actually remember eating it sliced on a sandwich. Also Cheez Whiz. Who remembers Cheez Whiz???

    cardiogirl: Well, you can certainly do it with the box version. I can’t imagine it would be quite as good, but you can’t go wrong with cheesy macaroni and bacon, no matter how it’s fixed. And there’s always a place for you at our table (ie, in front of our TV).

    Kathy: I think any judge would let me off once he knew I used only a half a stick of butter to ensoak the breadcrumbs. I’m glad you were able to satisfy your bacon-deprived belly long enough to stop by and gaze upon the Bacaroni and Cheese. Don’t look for too long, tho. That delicious-sounding little sandwich will NOT sustain you for extended periods of B&C viewing.

    (whispers: Yes. We should schedule an intervention for Lin.)

    Canucklehead: I love my BILF shirt and wear it proudly. I HOPE I’m the only one who has one—that would make me feel very special and superior. Let me know if you make it and how it turns out (Silly. It will turn out AWESOME!)

    Regan: Well put. Bacon can never look bad on its own, but the wrong accompaniment makes bacon sad.

    I don’t care if it has bacon or not. Just the cheese is enough for me! It must be a lovely full flavour cheddar for me though.

    If you make your cheese sauce thick enough (you could still have bacon with it) and you allow it to go cold. It thickens so you can spread it thickly on toast. Then grill it. This is really scrummy. I used to make a large batch of it and keep it in the fridge (even the freezer) and use it whenever I fancied a cheesy snack – which was daily hahaha!

  38. 38 Mamaflo

    I do, I put bacon in probably 80 – 85% of what I make. It just tastes better! It’s a joke with my kids when I invite them for dinner, they always ask “will there be bacon in it?”, and my response “of course.”
    Oh, let me add that the 10% that doesn’t have bacon is baking.
    When I was a kid growing up, the kids couldn’t have bacon (I was oldest of 7 kids) because it was too expensive but my father got some every single morning and I swore to myself that I’d have bacon whenever I wanted when I left home.

    Yumm! That Bacorini and Cheese looks incredible! Probably millions of your readers have now screwed up their New Years Resolutions because of it too!

    Speaking of people putting bacon in anything, I once saw a show on the Food Network where the Chef made Bacon Ice Cream! The people who tasted it said it was fantastic. Though I can’t quite get my mind around eating frozen Bacon!

    Babs – beetle: Holy crap! That sounds awesome! Thickened cheese sauce on toast! It may not be as good with Velveeta, tho, but I’d be willing to try it with Cheddar. Man, that sounds good. And I agree: to me, cheese is always the more important ingredient.

    flit: I’ve never heard the siren call of celery when I’m at the store. If I buy it for some other reason and have some left over, I only like it with peanut butter. But now that I think about it . . . Ah, Cheez Whiz. How I used to love you on white bread, smashed down flat.

    Mamaflo: I can just see you, a la Scarlet O’Hara, shaking your fist at the sky. “THERE WILL BE BACON!”

    Cindy Lietz, Polymer Clay Tutor: Yeah, I don’t get the trend of putting bacon in ice cream or chocolate or other sweet dishes. To me, it just doesn’t “go.” Bacon has many homes, but not in ice cream.

    Jackie: I never understood the fried egg on a hamburger. Yes, it goes with the bacon, with the bun, with cheese, maybe even with ketchup. But not with a burger! And then does the yolk ooze out when you bite into it?

    PurpleGreenPops.com: Let us know if “honey” makes it. Tell her to be sure to use the whole block of Velveeta.

    Sniffie and the Florida Furkids: Well, be sure to tell her about it. Bacon lovers around the world need to know about Bacaroni and Cheese.

    Vivienne: It’s hard not to get very personal with Bacaroni. Especially after you take the first bite. I usually cry a little.

    I love Velveeta even if it is a nasty, processed cheese “product” that when wrapped properly would probably last about 10 years in a refrigerator. So don’t worry about adding bacon to your mac and cheese, the cheese is already killing him… and I don’t know if I said this on your previous post or not, but I believe almost everything is better with bacon. I eat pb and cheese rollups, pb spread on chocolate chip cookies, and pb and bacon sandwiches, or at least I used to this crap when I was a big fat slob. LOL

    Chris Wood: I feel better. I will continue to eat bacon three times a day, but quit the cliff diving.

    bsilvia: Don’t wait until tomorrow! That’s just, what, 24 more hours you’re going Bacaroni-less. It’s not worth it!

    Duck: Mmmm. I’d say Britney Spears is right at home in that list of links. Except for the Golden Globes.

    Sunshine: You make a good point. I think the key to a winning combo is making sure the bacon is crisp. Otherwise, all I can think of is that chewy, fatty part—and that doesn’t belong anywhere.

    That video is hilarious! No, I hadn’t seen it. I love the ominous music playing as the gravy is plopped down alongside the chicken-fried bacon. I’m not at all interested in that, I have to say. Even with more salt.

    That’s nothing….compared to the homage he’ll pay when you bring home the BACON FLAVORED LUBE!

    You gotta do a buy and try on this one..

    Or if that doesn’t hit the spot….perhaps the BEER LUBE will….http://www.spike.com/blog/aee-2009-beer-lube/72594?cid=YSSP

    Punk Rebel Mama: Oh, HELL, yes! According to my research, that bacon lube may not be an actual product, but rest assured: I have written to the makers of Bacon Salt to see if it exists—and if it doesn’t, could they please make it for me. If I can find it, I WILL try it. The beer lube, however, would probably make me puke. THANK YOU for bringing this to my attention. Hey, aren’t you the one who alerted me to the online cereal marshmallows? I see a partnership developing here . . .
