Pretzel Crusted Skillet Bacon Mac and Cheese

Yep, sounds ridiculously fattening....and kinda is. Everyone has gotta splurge once in a while. Or at least I think so. I love Macaroni and Cheese. It is so versatile and one of my absolute favorite foods. Add smoky bacon and crispy salty pretzels to it and it is pure heaven! Drool!

Pretzel Crusted Skillet Bacon Mac and Cheese
Serves 8

16 oz. short pasta (I used Shells)
2 cups shredded american cheese blend, divided
1.5 cups low fat milk
2 tbsp. butter
1 tbsp. flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. black pepper
6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 cup crushed pretzels

Cook pasta to al dente, drain and set aside.

While pasta is cooking, in a large skillet melt the butter. Once melted whisk in flour, salt, and pepper. Stir for about 3 minutes. Slowly, stir in the milk and once thickened add in half of the shredded cheese. Stir until melted.

Add in the cooked pasta and top with remaining shredded cheese, crushed pretzels, and bacon.

Place under broiler for about 3-4 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Enjoy!
