My Personal Review:

Well, this recipe is definitely a bacon addicts recipe! I think the Bacon Cups were a delicious addition to the classic Mac and Cheese, even if the cups were a bit hard to make. While eating i was a bit perplexed... I wasn't sure whether i wanted to eat the Bacon Cup with the mac and cheese, or save it till the end...

My Overall Rating: 3 out of 5 Clean Plates

That is probably the most impressive bacon bowl I have ever seen.

This meal would be amazing with LTs. (That's a BLT minus bacon. I'm pretty sure that area is covered already.)
