It’s National Macaroni ‘n Cheese Day!
I had no idea that July 14th was a designated holiday! So of course, I need to celebrate!
Time to celebrate Macaroni and Cheese, and what better way than smothering a burger…I mean how can this be bad for you? In fact, there’s only one thing better on this day of celebration:
Behold The Bacon And Mac ‘n’ Cheese-Wrapped Corn Dog!
Lots of amazing macaroni and cheese food today, beginning with this picture of a bacon and mac’n’cheese wrapped corn dog!
Imagine wrapping a corn dog in mac ‘n’ cheese and then a bacon crust!
And now that we’ve opened the “mac’n’cheese floodgates”, let’s double down on some fun! Here is a tease:
Yes, what you see is majestic, but before he head to my own mac’n’cheese burger encounter, let’s start with that wacky world of mac’n’cheese hot dogs!
A Bacon-Wrapped BBQ Hot Dog Topped With Mac ‘n’ Cheese!
If mac’n’cheese isn’t enough, you can BBQ that bad boy and make it even better!
And if you like the idea of a “mac ‘n’ cheese dog”, then what about this?
Now it’s getting a bit crazy…the internet is filled with pictures of mac’n’cheese hot dogs – and they all look great!
And if you REALLY want to go man’n’cheese crazy, try this:
The Mac’n’Cheese Pizza!
And of course, even the simplest “bacon mac ‘n’ cheese” is special – here is a mac’n’cheese dish I ordered once – with bacon of course – and boy did they deliver!
And once you start twisting bacon around mac ‘n cheese, there is no going back – you end up with this:
The Bacon Mac ‘n’ Cheese Cone!
Yep, a cone filled with mac’n’cheese and topped with bacon – count me in!
If you aren’t a hot dog fan, then you have another option. Yes, recently I bit down hard on a bacon mac’n’cheese burger!
OK, for some of you this is just to much to take, but stay with me and we’ll go through all of this majesty for you so you can understand why these are the greatest things ever created!
There are some wacky Chefs out there, and guess what? I found one too!
My Own Mac Burger Encounter!
Yes, my son Jeff jokingly told me to order a mac’n’cheese burger the other day…and never one to back down from a dare, I did!
Now isn’t that a thing of beauty? Not only was there a LOT of bacon on top of the burger, the kitchen actually used large macaroni noodles to really let it stand out – oh, and it came with tater tots as well!
So, if you want to know what it tasted like, I will say this: it’s like eating a bacon cheeseburger and stuffing a little mac’n’cheese in there to boot…a nice addition, not necessary in any way at all, but good!
Now that I have suitably terrified you, let me at least offer up a few ways to maximize your “mac’n’cheese enjoyment” – how about a “bacon-wrapped, mac’n’cheese-stuffed Meatloaf?
Here’s A “Bacon-Wrapped, Mac’n’Cheese-Stuffed Meatloaf” Recipe!
If I’m going to pay through the snout for bacon, I’m going to make it memorable, and this is the way to do it!
The best part is, this is pretty easy to make! Just make a meatloaf blend like this one that “Allrecipes” offers up.
- 1 ½ pounds ground beef
- 1 egg
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup dried bread crumbs
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons prepared mustard
- ⅓ cup ketchup
Cook your mac’n’cheese separately and have it ready to go – this is a shot of the special version made at Chez L’Ami Louis in Paris.
Next, layer bacon in the bottom of a loaf pan…take your meatloaf mix and press half of it into the pan – then add your mac’n’cheese – and then press the rest of the meatloaf mixture on top…
Lay more bacon on top, tucking it all in together to form a nice seal, and bake at 350 degrees for about an hour…and you will end up with this:
Tell me – if you are into this mac’n’cheese mashup, what about this one?

I like Mac and Cheese, but I usually have it as a side dish, accompanying something like Chicken wrapped in bacon. I definitely would not want to eat it as an ice cream flavour, John! 🙂
Best wishes, Pete.
