Bacon Pimiento Mac and Cheese

bacon mac and cheese recipeNew Year’s Eve is quickly approaching and I was just about out of ideas for what to cook for our NYE party until I remembered a long time favorite- bacon mac and cheese.  Need I say more!?  I got a little impatient once I started craving pimiento bacon mac and cheese (my favorite cheese variety for this dish), so I decided to whip some up to hold me over in the meantime.  Since it’s so easy to make, I’ll be making more on Thursday!
pimiento mac and cheese recipeWHAT YOU NEED
1 box Cellantani pasta
1 tub Price*s® Southern Style pimiento cheese
1/4 cup milk
2.5 oz bacon pieces
Cajun seasoning
Black pepper
bacon macaroni and cheeseWHAT YOU DO
Combine entire tub of Price*s® Southern Style pimiento cheese spread into a mixing bowl with milk, and stir until evenly mixed.  In a separate pot, cook pasta per instructions on box.  Drain pasta and allow to cool.  Combine pasta, cheese mixture, cajun seasoning, and pepper into a saucepan, then stir and cook over low heat for approx. 5 minutes before serving.
pimiento bacon mac and cheeseBacon pimiento mac and cheese is a great dish to serve over the holidays since any leftover pimiento cheese from the main dish can also be used as a quick appetizer.
price pimiento cheese spreadPrice*s® Southern Style pimiento cheese spread is my go to since it tastes the same as I remembered as a kid- so good and creamy!
pimiento cheese on bagelsFor a quick appetizer,  you can serve the pimiento cheese spread over a slightly toasted bite sized bagel.  For a little extra kick, I recommend trying the new Price*s® Southern Style jalapeno pimiento cheese spread.
pimiento cheese bagelsThe cheesy bagel bites just so happen to be a great snack between those holiday meals and alongside the bacon pimiento mac and cheese.  You can find Price*s® Southern Style pimiento cheese spread to make both recipes at select Texas Walmart stores near the cream cheese in the refrigerated section.  Go here to find a store that has it near you.

    My hubby loves pimento. I’m a Southern girl and have never been crazy about it (or grits, while I’m confessing) but this sounds like something I may actually like! I’m going to make this soon for both of us because it sounds pretty tasty! Thank You for sharing! Hopefully I can win some wifey brownie points. 🙂
