Recipe For Macaroni Cheese

I have joined another blogging group! Basically, I am doing this so that some of the blogs I write don’t need much thought. It is because I have been so busy, and because I am so far behind in blogging. The Crazy Cooking Challenge is Tina’s concept.

Every blogger who participates is cooking the same dish and posting their recipe at the same time. Using google as my search function and choosing pages from South Africa I came across Pessimist Incarnate and used Wayne’s recipe for Macaroni Cheese. Well, let’s put it this way, I used it as inspiration, as I left out one ingredient! Nevertheless, what I did tasted great, and I am sure that is what counts.

  • preheat the oven to 180° Celsius
  • while the macaroni is cooking as per the packet instructions fry the bacon in a dry non stick pan
  • mix together the cheese, crème fraîche and the egg
  • drain the macaroni and drizzle with some olive oil to prevent it from sticking
