Bacon Garlic Mac and Cheese
Mac and cheese is a well known kids favourite. Forget those boxes from the store, you can easily make your own delicious version at home with just three basic ingredients - macaroni, cream, and shredded cheese! This recipe has even more flavour added in using fried bacon and garlic.


  • 1 cup elbow macaroni pasta
  • 1/2 rasher bacon, diced finely
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • 1 cup thickened cream
  • 1/2 cup cheese, grated


Cook macaroni pasta according to packet instructions.

Meanwhile, heat a little butter or olive oil in a frying pan (over med-high heat) and fry bacon until it starts to turn golden brown.

Add garlic and stir through, cooking for a further 1-2 minutes.

Remove from heat, and wait for pasta to finish cooking.

Once pasta is cooked, strain the water out and then add pasta to the frying pan with the bacon and garlic.

Add cream and mix to combine.

Cook over med-high heat, stirring constantly, for a few minutes until sauce becomes thick.

Remove from heat and add grated cheese. Mix through until it is all melted.

Let cool for a few minutes then serve.

Makes 2-3 toddler servings.
