Chef Ro's Cooking Camp: Mac and Cheese

Updated: Feb 24

Learn how to cook bacon mac and cheese with Chef Ro in the latest installment of Chef Ro's Cooking Camp.


Here are the ingredients you will need:

4 ounces bacon, cut in 1/4" pieces

4 1/2 cups shredded cheese of your choice (will taste better if at least 1 cup is creamy like

brie, blue cheese, or goat cheese (or even cream cheese), or you may want to reduce the

cheese by 1/2 cup if you don't have a creamy cheese)

1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese, divided

Butter or neutral oil, if needed (or if you don't want to use bacon)

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

4 cups whole milk

1 3/4 cups panko breadcrumbs

1 pound pasta (I like shells)

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, as needed


If you have never tried freshly grated nutmeg, it will change your life (I don't say these things lightly). If you have never seen what that looks like, here is a link:
