Every one likes Mac and Cheese, it's tasty, filling, easy to make and everyone loves it.
This version of Mac and Cheese with Bacon and Truffle lifts the dish to new heights.
Truffle oil can be expensive to buy especially if you get the undiluted type but a little goes a long way in terms of flavour, so a small bottle should be long lasting investment.
The addition of truffle oil to this classic dish brings a deep earthy nuttiness enhancing the zesty flavours from the cheese.
I prefer to use an aged or vintage cheddar for this but Gruyere or Emmenthal will work just as well if you're looking for something different.
It is a rich dish so I usually serve it with something healthy to balance it out a bit but it's a perfect snack or a small portion can be a starter.
This recipe is adapted from one I found and adapted on the Tillamook Cheese website.
