O Canada! Stove Top Mac-N-Cheese

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Cluich

It's a heck of a lot quicker and easier to do mac and cheese on the stovetop. I add Canadian bacon to mine, because, well, I love bacon in all its forms.

This was a quick and very tasty recipe... I doubled mine as I buy my macaroni in 500g bags worked perfectly I also mixed the cheese I used tasty & Gouda 1 1/4 cups of each as per recipe. I had left over cheese so I poured it into a baking dish sprinkled the extra cheese over it and baked it in my fan forced oven at 240 until just golden. Next time I will triple the sauce for my family's preference:)<br/>Great recipe it doesn't need changing thanks for sharing.
