My family really enjoyed this recipe. I did add a few things to add a bit more zip. I added some dry mustard to the butter/flour minture. When i fried the bacon i added some minced garlic and finely diced onion. This recipe doesn't call for salt but i am glad i added it. It really brought all the flavours together. Although this is a simple recipe and easy to make be prepared for lots of cleanup (lots of dishes):). I would definately make this again...its a keeper. Read More

Oh my gosh.. this is one of the best recipes I have found on this site. I do not make any variations and it's delicious. One suggestion would be to not fry the canadian bacon too long because I have done that and it's not as good when those peices are chewy or hard I use the little 50 cent sized canadian bacon thats made to put on pizza.

My girlfriend and I both loved this recipe. I used a can of Italian style stewed tomatoes instead of whole tomatoes and it turned out incredible. The Canadian bacon really adds a nice flavor. Very good as leftovers also. Will DEFINITELY be making this again! Read More

I doubled this recipe. To make this a little more personal I added a little Frank's Hot Sauce a couple teaspoons of italian seasoning and another cup of cheese. This is almost like goulash. Doubled recipe no leftovers. Husband ate what everyone else didn't. I absolutely think double the cheese is crucial. My kids thought canadian bacon in macaroni and cheese was great. Next time I'll add some sauteed onion/garlic. Read More

When deciding what "side" to make for tonight my roommate has his heart set on mac n cheese and I had a craving for onion rings (not sure why). Well we compromised and made both! I have never made homemade mac n cheese but this recipe looked interesting and easy for a beginner. On the first try I followed the recipe exactly...but after adding the chedded cheddar cheese...it began to get clumpy and greasy. I threw it out and started the cheese sauce again only instead of cheddar I used american cheese. Well at least this was creamier but I didn't like it any better. Besides my roommate who thought this was "okay " no one really liked this. As I was about to throw what was left my roommate said he'd just eat the leftovers tommorrow at work...which was the only thing that saved these from going in the trash. I attribute the failure partly due to my inexperience in making homemade mac n cheese but I will try to gain experience from other mac n cheese recipes found on this site. Thanks anyways. Read More
