A more grown-up version of a favorite dish. Nice as a side for Thanksgiving or Christmas. The truffle oil definitely makes it more expensive, but it's worth it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cook macaroni according to package directions.
  3. Toss macaroni with truffle oil & set aside.
  4. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion & cook over medium heat for 5 minutes. Add the bacon & the flour, combine well & cook for 1 minute.

This recipe is absolutely divine. It's like the ambrosia of mac & cheese. This is great fun to make with kids - lots of stirring, assembly etc -- but adults love the results just as much. Superb. I never measure anything and I definitely upped both the bacon and the truffle oil.

I made this recipe for the My-3-Chefs Game (November 2009) and my theme was Mac n’ Cheese. I prepared all 3 mac n' cheese recipes for a dinner group and had them review. This recipe was a favorite of 3 of my guests. It was really good, but, I will make it next time without the onion.
