A few weeks ago, one of my husband’s cute nieces stayed with us for a couple of days. His younger brother and his wife needed to take care of business and there was no kid allowed during the meetings. We call her Munchies. It’s a nickname given by my husband’s other siblings for a reason I didn’t want to ask. Munchies was a really behaved girl. She’s already two years past that age wherein she’s causing trouble to her parents. There’s only one problem with Munchies: she’s a very picky eater. Her mom had told me her problems with feeding her.
She reminds me of my brother when he was a kid; all he ever wanted to eat was meat, meat, and meat. That’s a bit of a problem because while meat has protein, she needed other nutrients inside her body too. But she only ever ate vegetables in burgers and fruits in pies. She’s not much of a fan of the classic homemade dishes.
This was where this bacon cheeseburger mac and cheese enters the scene. I found this recipe over at The Lazy Mom Cooks. While it’s not as healthy as her mom would have wanted her to eat, it’s a whole lot healthier than fast food. And Munchies enjoyed the dish; do sis my kids who love their cheese and their meat. I served it with vegetables on the side and she even tried the vegetables. This mac and cheese recipe can do wonders!
