Why are these bacon-wrapped macaroni and cheese bites superior to regular mac & cheese? Let us count the ways:
- They’re portable
- They’ve got twice the cheese
- You can eat them with your hands
Yes, these flavors are super kid friendly, but we don’t know any adults who can resist the simple pleasures of bacon and macaroni and cheese either. The gooey cheese and crispy Italian-seasoned panko breadcrumb topping really take this mac to the next level — not to mention the bacon flavor that infuses each bite.
Make these bacon macaroni and cheese balls for an easy party appetizer or a fun meal you can make in a muffin tin. Those little bacon cups mean you won’t even need a bowl! And these keep really well in the fridge, so you can make some ahead of time and warm them up when you want ’em (which is going to be just about all the time).
