Bacon Pimento Macaroni & CheeseHomemade pimento cheese is one of my very favorite things on this green Earth. I would also say the same for a good homemade macaroni & cheese. So, to combine the two – and then add bacon for good measure, just seemed natural.

I made crab cakes for dinner the other evening, and as I’d mentioned in Monday’s post – I’ve been kind of seafood-ed out lately. So I wanted to do a side dish that was amped up enough to be a meal on it’s own. I kind of threw this together with things I had on hand, and it turned out so unbelievably wonderful. I know it will be one we come back to again and again!

    I love dishes like this! I think some of the best creations are born from what’s ‘on hand’ in the kitchen. This looks truly scrumptious & comforting!!! :)

    I’ve never had pimento cheese or pimentos – totally missing out I’m sure. This mac and cheese looks awesome!

    Oh good lordy, Laura! This looks soooo scrumptious. Mac and cheese is my weakness, but this takes it to another level. Great recipe!

    I love a bowl of warm, gooey mac-n-cheese! This looks wonderful, and I may have to try adding pimento next time. Pinning :)

    Bacon + pimento = best combo ever. I definitely need to try this soon!

    Do you think I could use little squares of ham instead of bacon as it is what I have on hand today? I was thinking of adding broccoli (It is frozen broccoli) I hate to change up someone’s recipe but try it first but I don’t have any bacon in the house. YUP if you can believe that.
