Wondertime Macaroni and Cheese

Prep Time: 20 minutes | Cook Time: 25-30 minutes | Total Time: 50 minutes | Serves: 6 to 8


  • 10 oz. extra-sharp cheddar, grated
  • 4 oz. Monterey Jack, grated
  • 4 oz. Velveeta, cubed
  • 4 oz. cream cheese
  • 1 (12 oz.) can evaporated milk
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 6 slices extra-thick bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 12 oz. elbow macaroni cooked and drained
  • 1/2 c. plain dried bread crumbs
  • 2 oz. Parmesan, grated


  1. Heat oven to 350°. Put cheeses (except Parmesan) in the top of a double boiler (if you don’t have one, set a heatproof bowl over a saucepan with about 1 inch of water in it) and melt over simmering water, stirring frequently.
  2. Gradually add milk, whisking until completely smooth. Whisk in mustard, bacon, salt and pepper.
  3. Pour into a 9-by-9-inch baking dish, add macaroni, and toss to coat.
  4. In a small bowl, combine bread crumbs and Parmesan; sprinkle over the top. Bake until crumbs are browned and cheese is bubbling, 25 to 30 minutes.
