Bacon and Truffle Oil Macaroni and Cheese

The bacon and truffle oil love continues!

I actually made this recipe about a month ago, before I posted my Potato Soup with Bacon and Truffle Oil, but just finally got around to sharing it. But once again, the bacon and truffle oil combination totally kicked one of my favorite recipes up a notch. I loved it! The subtle undertones of the truffle oil and the smoky, salty crunch of the bacon paired perfectly with the creamy mac and cheese. And while I chose to make this version stovetop, you could also easily sprinkle it with some breadcrumbs and pop it in the oven for an extra-delicious baked version.

“the griller” gift set giveaway

The delicious December giveaways are continuing at Gimme Some Oven. As our follow-up to our earlier gift sets for The Cook and The Baker, today we are kicking off a smokin’ giveaway for The Griller!

I am extra excited about this week’s roundup being from Kansas City, the land of barbeque. One of the best local stores we have is sponsoring an a-ma-zing $500 gas grill, and then we have a gourmet indoor removable plate grill, some stellar foodie art prints, and one of the all-time best grilling cookbooks. So whether you love to grill indoors or outdoors, whether you love a good steak or you prefer vegan kabobs — you can do it all in style with items from this amazing giftset. And any of these would make fantastic gifts for the other grillers in your life too!
