MAC AND CHEESE BITES WITH BACON RECIPE

3:07:00 PM
If you're looking sort of a bite, I highly recommend a homemade Mac and cheese bite with crispy bacon. These little Macaroni bites are always the primary thing that goes on any holiday party! Only titles just are enough to form you drool!

Rich, cheesy and salty, this tiny macaroni bite may be a perfect piece to serve with a glass of champagne. Since they bite-sized portions, you do not feel too guilty shooting up some in your mouth in one sitting.

MAC AND CHEESE BITES WITH BACON RECIPE
The nice thing about this appetizer recipe is that it are often made the day before it's cooled then placed within the oven moments before your guests arrive. there's something so beautiful about greeting your guests with the recent appetizers and cold glass of champagne as soon as they rehearse the door.

I think the sharp Cheddar works well for this because it's an excellent combination of flavors with bacon. But you'll also use Gruyere cheese also .

You will throw your pasta together with your white sauce until all the pasta is coated. Then you'll add your cooked Bacon, eggs to bind the mixture together and lightly flour to assist with the steadiness of the bite.
