Stove-Top Bacon Mac n’ Cheese

Easy, quick and tasty – and very popular with the toddler. You can leave the bacon out for a vegetarian friendly dish, it adds a nice smokiness though.

Stove-Top Bacon Mac n’ Cheese


  • 4 slices uncured bacon
  • 1 lb macaroni
  • 3 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • 2¼ cups milk
  • 2 ounces low-fat cream cheese
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ tsp jarred minced garlic
  • 8 ounces 2% sharp cheddar cheese, grated


Add the bacon to a large skillet, place over medium heat, cook until crispy, turning often. Drain well on paper towels, crumble up and set aside.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil, cook macaroni for time on package.

In a large saucepan whisk the flour, pepper and milk together over medium-high heat. Break the cream cheese into small pieces and add in. Bring to a boil, whisking constantly. Turn down to medium, add in the Dijon, Worcestershire and garlic, let cook for a couple of minutes. Turn off the heat and whisk in the cheese and the bacon.

Drain the pasta and toss with the sauce.

Serves 4.
