Mac ‘N Burger Blue Cheese with Bacon

Preparation

Cook the elbow macaroni per the box instructions. Roughly dice 1/2 of the bacon and finely dice the remainder, then cook on a hot pan until crisp.

In a pan, melt butter and whisk in flour. Add white wine (or substitute chicken stock) and whole milk. Let simmer until it reaches a thick and creamy texture. Add smoked paprika and mustard.

Remove the sauce from the heat and stir in grated Castello Aged Havarti, 1/2 of the crisp bacon and 3 crumbled pieces of Castello Burger Blue. Stir in the cooked elbow macaroni and put in a greased pan. Top with the remaining bacon and Castello Burger Blue slices.

Bake in the oven at 400°F for about 20 minutes, or until the cheese takes on a bit of color.

This mouth-watering side dish is easy to prepare in advance and reheat, if you are inviting a large number of guests.
