Family dinner time is crucial because it gives us the time to catch up and find out what the next week’s plan is. During the week, it was difficult to have a family dinner due to my husband’s work schedule, the kid’s availability, and my willingness to cook a meal! Just kidding, I cook almost every night, it just might be a simple meal sometimes. Sunday is OUR FAMILY NIGHT DINNER where everyone is here and willing to sit at the table to eat.
During the summer it is hard to be in the house cooking, so I look for recipes that require less cook time but TASTE AWESOME. My kids are picky (karma coming back and biting me) so I try to make everyone happy! Pasta is one of their favorite dishes, so I know I can get a hearty meal off Hillshire Farm Recipes.
I found the perfect recipe~ Beef and Bacon Baked Mac & Cheese. I love to create new meals for my family. However, sometimes they like it, and sometimes they tell me don’t make this again. My daughter is always in the kitchen with me, so she helps me out too. I love spending one on one time with my kids.
We headed to Walmart to pick up our ingredients for the meal. Now the recipe calls for you to make your mac & cheese but I’m buying our favorite boxed Mac & Cheese, but everything else is fine. My family loves to try new recipes, and they like when I step out of the NORMAL food routine.
So let’s start the Allen Family’s Beef & Bacon Mac & Cheese- I know one thing I won’t ever change is the sausage. I will always and forever buy Hillshire Farm sausage and when I saw they have flavors I’ve never seen before I was in awe.
- CHICKEN SMOKED SAUSAGE BASIL PESTO
- CHICKEN SMOKED SAUSAGE ROASTED GARLIC
- CAJUN STYLE ANDOUILLE SMOKED SAUSAGE
- HOT SMOKED SAUSAGE
I was in smoked sausage heaven! I grabbed what I needed and headed home to get this meal on the table-I’m ready for family time.
I got the bacon and sausage ready for the bake. I bought boxed Mac & Cheese and prepared that, then poured into the baking dish, added the cheese; bacon; and smoked sausage then topped with cheddar cheese. Baked that for 20 minutes then added garlic bread and corn for the sides. I think everyone will love it!
THEY DID! My daughter even went back for seconds and that never happens! My husband didn’t talk much until all his mac & cheese bake was gone, then informed me that I would need to make it again. Now what I loved about this recipe was it was SIMPLE, EASY, and INEXPENSIVE to make. Hillshire Farm smoked sausage is premium, high-quality, authentic flavor plus is family owned; generation to generation of pure goodness!
Here is my family letting me know if they liked it or not!
I know Hillshire Farm smoked sausage will never let me down on flavor so adding that to our favorite dish (pasta) I nailed this Sunday Dinner!
