Serves: 4

Preparation and Cooking Time: 30 minutes​

Ingredients: ​

350g dried macaroni pasta​

100g streaky bacon, un-smoked, chopped into bite size pieces​

1 leek, finely chopped​

100g breadcrumbs​

100g medium cheddar cheese, grated​

15g parmesan cheese, grated​


30g unsalted butter​

30g plain flour​

285ml whole milk​

1.) Prepare the pasta according to the packet instructions in a large saucepan.​

5.) Drain the cooked pasta and return to the saucepan, pour over the cheese sauce and toss well.​

6.) Spoon the macaroni cheese into serving dishes and top with the reserved fried bacon and leek,​and scatter with breadcrumbs, extra cheese and parmesan. 

7.) Place the dishes under a hot grill for the cheese to melt and the topping to become nice & crisp.
