    Cindy – one of our favorite restaurants in Brooklyn has a mac and cheese which you can get studded with thick chunks of bacon. It’s really decadent, so Mike requested bacon mixed into his birthday-week mac & cheese. I chopped a few strips of bacon into chunks and cooked them until they were crisp but still a little chewy, then drained them and mixed them into my cheese sauce before adding the pasta. It was really, really good. 🙂

    This inspired me to tinker with my favorite comfort food. What a winner on the night before a huge grad school exam. I’m a vegetarian so don’t show my boyfriend the bacon version! Thanks and yummy!

    One of my favorite comfort dishes last winter was mac & cheese with crumbled mexican chorizo. So delicious…

  4. Jennifer… I’ve been reading A Dash of Bitters for a while now, only discovered your musings a couple months ago. Really enjoying the pictures and commentary. Plus, I feel like we are kindred cooks separated by a country. Well, except your food always looks nicer than mine… Bechamel based Mac and Cheese with sauteed chard! Mac and Cheese is one of my all time favorite comfort foods and we eat, if anything, too much chard. One of my favorite vegetables: a little garlic, some pepper flakes, anchovies, chard, and a squeeze of lemon. Anyway, thanks for the wonderful pictures and food!
