DIRECTIONS

  • MACARONI: Cook macaroni according to package and drain well. Pour into a cast iron dutch oven (or crock pot), stir melted butter into the hot pasta and set aside.
  • CHEESE SAUCE: Heat milk in a 2 quart sauce pan over medium heat until warmed. Add the cheeses, stirring gently until melted. Season to taste with habanero sauce, dry mustard, salt, and black pepper.
  • Remove from heat and fold in the sour cream. Slowly add the beaten eggs while wisking to incorporate. Mix in the chopped ham and jalapenos.
  • ASSEMBLY: Pour the cheese sauce over the pasta (the macaroni will be soupy at this point, but it will absorb as it bakes).  Note: Dish can be covered and refrigerated for up to 2 days at this point.
  • BAKE: Preheat oven to 350°F Place bacon pieces over the top. In a small bowl, combine bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese. Sprinkle over top of macaroni and bacon.
  • Bake approximately 30 minutes (longer if refrigerated) until hot. Remove from oven and place tomatoes over top to resemble wagon wheels and sprinkle with a bit more black pepper if desired. Place back in the oven for 5-10 more minutes. You can turn the oven off and keep warm for a little while til ready to serve.
