I love an everything bagel and I love mac & cheese… So I decided to marry the two into a delicious refreshing dish… Yes, I am a happy girl on this Mac & Cheese Monday!!!
Everything Bagel Mac & Cheese
1 everything bagel
1/2 lb pasta of choice cooked to package directions
4 oz smoked salmon diced
1 Tbs capers
1 red onion diced
4 oz cream cheese
1/2 cup milk
3 slices American cheese
1 Tbs everything bagel seasoning
1 Tbs salt
1/2 tsp pepper
3 Tbs butter
Heat 2 Tbs of butter in a pot on low.
Add the milk and let it heat on low for a few minutes. Next add the cream cheese and melt slowly into the milk. Finally add the American cheese and continue cooking until the cheese also melts. Add the everything bagel seasoning. Add the sauce to the pasta. Stir in the capers and the salmon.
Spoon everything into your serving dish, top with red onions, more salmon and capers and the everything bagel made into croutons with 1 tbs of butter. Serve and eat… Delicious!!!
