This is a recipe that I wanted to try for a long time. And during my stay in New York, I was able to taste a delicious ‘Mac and Cheese with crispy bacon’ and there I am that it was absolutely essential that I test. And as Thanksgiving is fast approaching (it’s Thursday), I said to myself that it might be nice to share this dish, very popular in the United States.
I reviewed the recipe in my own way by revisiting with emmental de Savoie and parmesan cheese.
