Macaroni and Cheese

Macaroni and Cheese with Bacon

There are some foods that Thomas seems to like more then others.    Macaroni is one of his favourites as it's easy for him to pick up and eat.  Last night we decided to make a simple Macaroni and Cheese and it was a hit!  The recipe is adapted from the Classic Macaroni and Cheese receipe at, the only variation being that I added bacon.

  • 400g macaroni
  • 50g butter 
  • 2 tbs plain flour 
  • 2 cups milk 
  • 2 cups grated cheese (I used Tasty Cheese)
Cook the macaroni in a large pot of boiling water until al dente.
Melt butter in a saucepan.  Add bacon and fry for a few minutes until the bacon is cooked.
Add the flour and cook, stirring, for 1 minute on a medium heat.
Gradually add the milk, stirring until smooth and the mixture comes to the boil.
Remove from heat and add the cheese, stirring until melted and smooth.
Drain pasta and add to sauce mixture, stir until well mixed and pasta is coated with the cheese mixture.

Best eaten with your fingers.

Thomas prefers foods that he can pick up and eat himself as he doesn't like to be spoon fed (unless it's home made custard).  The Macaroni and Cheese was easy for him to eat as it sticks together nicely.

That was yummy!

As always, it's not a proper meal unless you get it everywhere.  Luckily he got most of it in his mouth this time and not too much in his hair or on the floor.  I think that means he really likes it!
