Have you seen the yummy new line of Triscuit crackers? These delicious new crackers are a flavorful blend of brown rice and wheat, brown rice with red bean and wheat, and brown rice with sweet potato and wheat. I was able to try these for the first time at BlogHer last week. Triscuits provided treats for one of the parties. They topped the new crackers with all kinds of yummy goodness and I loved them! The best part is that the new Triscuits are made with 100% whole grain brown rice & wheat.
As soon as I saw the Brown Rice Tomato & Sweet Basil Triscuits I knew I would be trying them as topping on my favorite mac & cheese dish. I also think the Brown Rice Baked with Sweet Potato Roasted Sweet Onion triscuits will be perfect to use as coating for chicken the next time I make chicken parmesan. You know that’s going to be awesome right? I’ll be sure to post when I make it, but for now I’m going to share this uber delish and easy to make bacon and tomato mac and cheese with Triscuit topping recipe.
Bacon & Tomato Mac & Cheese With Triscuit Topping Recipe
4-6 slices of bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
1 small tomato, diced
6 ounces whole wheat medium shells pasta, cooked according to package directions
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
6 ounces triple cheddar shredded cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
6-8 Brown Rice Tomato & Sweet Basil Triscuits, crushed into crumbs*
1. Bring heavy whipping cream to boil; reduce heat to low and cook for 5 minutes until slight reduced. Slowly add cheese, mixing constantly to make sure all cheese melts.
2. In a casserole dish mix together pasta, bacon and tomato, mix well. Add cheese sauce mix until well combined.
3. Top mac and cheese with crushed Triscuits and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes until it’s bubbly and topping is golden brown.
* To crush Triscuits place them in a ziploc type sandwich bag and use a rolling-pin with a back and forth motion to create fine crumbs.
We all loved the mac and cheese with the Triscuit topping. The extra flavorful crunch really added a nice new dimension to this meal.
