Tailgate Recipe: Charged Up Mac & Cheese

Get ready for the Chargers' next game against the Packers with some charged up mac and cheese!


  • 8 ounces elbow macaroni, cooked
  • 1/4 cup Lucerne® butter
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups milk
  • 2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup Primo Taglio® grated Parmesan cheese
  • Salt, to taste
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • Cup Signature Farms Bacon, cooked and crumbled


  1. Cook macaroni according to the package directions. Drain.
  2. In a saucepan, melt 1/4 cup butter or margarine over medium heat. Stir in enough flour to make a roux. Add milk to roux slowly, stirring constantly. Stir in cheeses, and cook over low heat until cheese is melted and the sauce is a little thick. Add macaroni and stir. 
  3. Pour into a casserole dish, top with breadcrumbs and bacon. 
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 minutes. Serve.

The next time you prepare for the big game, don't forget your neighborhood Albertsons, Vons or Pavilions for all your tailgating needs.
