Ingredients
  • 2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni (large mac, not that tiny crap, you want it to hold all that delicious bacon and cheese)
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1½ cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup grated mozzarella cheese
  • ½ cup grated extra sharp cheddar cheese
  • 3 eggs
  • ¾ cup sour cream
  • 1 can condensed cheddar cheese coup
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup whole milk
  • ½ teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 strips thick-cut bacon, slightly overdone (crispy), crumbled
Instructions
  1. In a medium sauce pan, boil the macaroni for about 5 mins, drain, set aside.
