Crab Mac and Cheese with Bacon

I am still cooking like crazy trying to get lots of food made for my daughter and the marine to take back with them. They recently have been eating my taco mac and cheese and requested that I make more. Instead of repeating the recipe I made a new one.

If you want to make this, click on my macaroni and cheese with crab recipe on my sidebar.

I always add diced poblano peppers to this recipe. I add them uncooked because they soften a bit when the cheese mixture is added but they still retain some crunch.

Adding enough Old Bay seasoning to this recipe is the key.

This is how I package it for them. I freeze these and they just remove one from their freezer when they want some and put it in the microwave.

I fried some bacon and then drained and crumbled it. I sauteed the crab meat in the bacon grease with a touch of Old Bay and then mixed in the crumbled bacon and topped the mac and cheese with this mixture.
