Meal plans, local fast food and microwave dinners — these are the only three sources of food available to most college students while living in the dorms.

Not surprisingly, eating from the same cafeteria three times a day gets very old, very quickly, and going out or ordering in can be expensive. So that leaves you and your empty stomach with a never-ending supply of snacks and Easy Mac, of course.

Wrong!

With grocery stores in close proximity, microwave home-cooking is both feasible and remarkably fresh. This recipe uses real, flavor-packed ingredients and is ready in minutes!

“Easy Mac” never tasted so good.

Dorm-Friendly Bacon Mac and Cheese

Recipe inspired by Tasty

Ingredients

  • ½ cup macaroni
  • ½ cup water
  • Pinch of salt
  • Splash of milk
  • ¼ cup cheddar cheese
  • 2 strips bacon
  1. Pour macaroni and water into a mug or other microwave-safe container.
  2. Add a pinch of salt, stir.
  3. Microwave for 3-5 minutes, stirring after each minute.
  4. Add the milk and cheese, stir until the cheese is melty. Microwave an additional 30 seconds if necessary.
  5. Heat 2 strips bacon in microwave for 1-3 minutes depending on thickness of bacon. Cover with paper towel to reduce splattering if desired.
  6. Let bacon cool for 1 minute before tearing the slices up into small chunks.
  7. Add to macaroni and cheese mixture and enjoy!
