All your favorite things in one casserole dish.

Sometimes we receive a book we all kind of fight to see who takes home. The Mac + Cheese Cookbook is one of those. If you’ve ever truly craved macaroni and cheese, chef/owners at Oakland, CA restaurant Homeroom have the cure: a dozen kinds with a jillion more add-ins, including the most important one of all: bacon.

It’s true that you can add bacon to any of the macs in this book and the result will probably be delicious. But since we designed this mac around the salty, smoky taste of bacon, we think it’s the best choice if you’re craving a big dose of pork.

The intense flavor of smoky cheese goes a long way. Even the smallest shred of a smoked Cheddar or Jack will impart a whole lot of flavor to your mac and cheese, so go easy on it. This hearty smoky bacon mac and cheese makes a great dish for the winter holidays. (Can’t you just see it sitting pretty next to a big, plump turkey?)
