So Wrong, Yet Oh So Right!

Paula Deen has done it again. She has taken an already fattening food and upped it, not one, but two levels of fattiness. She started mac & cheese, one of my favorite guilty pleasure foods (but the kind with the sauce already made that you squeeze onto the noodles, not the kind with the powder). No, she didn't use a package for it, but made it from scratch. Once cooked, she put in into a baking dish and refrigerated it. After it cooled, Paula took it out of the fridge and cut the mac & cheese into big squares. Now is where the fun begins. She wrapped each chunk of the cold mac & cheese horizontally with bacon. Yes, bacon. One level of extra fatty goodness right there. When all the pieces were wrapped in bacon, she dredged them in flour, dipped them into beaten egg, then coated each one in bread crumbs. Do you see where this is going? You got it! She then FRIED them in oil until they were all brown and crispy.

While the fat content of this creation is frightening, it looked so effing good. Dip that bad boy into some warm tomato sauce or even ketchup and you got yourself a party. I know I am going to have to try this sometime. My arteries might scream at me, but it'll be worth it. I openly admit that I have tried some of Paula's recipes. Not all were successful, but the ones that are, are damn good. Just not something to make all the time.
