Method : 
  • Cook the macaroni in boiling water for 10 minutes , until just cooked. Drain into a colander and add the butter. Mix in with a fork then set aside.
  • Cook the bacon in a cooking pot until it is golden brown. You don't need any oil as the bacon will produce it's own fat.
  • Add the Butter to the pot then mix in the flour to form a Roux.
  • Add the warm milk and whisk together with the roux to form a thick sauce.
  • Add both of the cheeses to the sauce then remove from the heat. You do not need to melt the cheese at this stage.
  • Now you can add your cooked macaroni to the sauce and mix together so that all of the pasta is covered.
  • You can now empty the mixture into an oven dish , and let it cool down for 5 minutes.
  • Add the onion granules to the breadcrumbs and mix in.
  • Add the melted butter to the breadcrumbs and mix with a fork so that all of the breadcrumbs are coated. If you need to use more butter that is fine , as long as all of the breadcrumbs are covered.
  • Tip the breadcrumbs over the Macaroni Cheese and spread evenly so as to cover the whole dish.
  • Bake in a preheated oven @ 180 c for 25 - 30 minutes, until the topping is golden brown.
