Ingredients:

6 thick slices applewood smoked bacon, diced
2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
2-1/4 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1-3/4 cups shredded Colby-Jack Cheese, divided
8 ounces elbow macaroni, cooked and drained

2. Cook bacon in a large saucepan over medium heat 5 to 6 minutes or until crisp, stirring frequently.

3. Use a slotted spatula to transfer bacon to a paper towel; set aside.

4. Add flour to drippings in pan; cook and stir 30 seconds, being sure to scrape up and browned bits from the bottom of the pan.

5. Add milk and salt; bring to a boil. Simmer 1 minute or until sauce thickens, stirring frequently, watch closely to avoid scalding.
