Ingredients
  

Bread Cone

  • 1 pizza dough see notes after the recipe
  • 1 egg

Mac 'n' Cheese

  • 6 slices bacon
  • 1 pound elbow pasta
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese
  • 8 oz cheddar cheese shredded
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions
 

Bread Cones

  • Preheat your oven to 425°.
  • Take cardstock and wrap it into a cone shape and secure it with tape. I take scissors and flatten the bottom, so I can cook the cones upside down. Cover the cone with a layer of aluminum foil, and spray with a non-stick spray. Repeat 5 times, to give you 6 total cones.
  • To make cones roll your pizza dough into a large rectangle, it should be about 12"x18".
  • Cut 1" strips lengthwise, so you have 12-1"x18" strips.
  • Starting at the point of the wrap one strip of the dough down the cone, making sure the layers touch as you go around. Continue with another piece of dough. Each cone should use 2 pieces of dough.
  • Crack your egg into a small bowl and add in a splash of water. Whisk until fully mixed, and brush on to the outside of every cone.
  • Bake cones for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Allow cones to cool before removing from the mold.

Mac 'n' Cheese

  • Cook pasta according to package directions in a large pot of heavily salted water, and drain.
  • Cook 6 slices of bacon according to the package directions, and set aside to cool. Once cooled crumble the bacon.
  • In a medium sauce pan over medium heat melt 1/4 cup of butter.
  • Once butter is melted as 1/4 cup of flour, constantly stirring the mixture over medium heat until darkened slightly in color and smooth, about 2 minutes.
  • Add 2 cups of milk and allow mixture to come to a simmer.
  • Add in 1/2 cup of cream cheese, and allow it to melt, stirring occasionally.
  • Once cream cheese is melted add in 8 oz of shredded cheddar cheese and stir until melted.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add the elbow noodles to the cheese sauce and stir to combine.
  • Add mac and cheese to the cone and top with crumbled bacon.
