I'm deciding that this post will be more of a photo food journey rather than an actual recipe. Mainly because me cooking mac and cheese involves no measuring and lots of improvising. I don't want you to get the impression that this can be recreated.
Who knows how much cheese I used? I used half and half instead of milk. Weird choice? Maybe, but that's what I had laying around.
Speaking of things I had laying around, 4 different cheeses! Cheddar, American, Swiss, and mozzarella.
I pan roasted some cauliflower in the bacon grease and sprinkled a Creole rub on the whole lot.
There ya have it folks. Even you can throw some moderately random ingredients together to make some darn good mac and cheese at home.
I do have a mission to follow an actual baked mac and cheese recipe someday so keep your eyes peeled for that.
