This Crab Mac and Cheese is super creamy and rich and makes an indulgent side for the holidays. Crab pairs perfectly with both cheese and pasta so it is a natural choice for adding to mac and cheese. The addition of crab and some salty, crumbled bacon elevates mac and cheese from a kid’s food to an elegant side dish that will please your inner child and your adult palate.
Using canned crab not only makes this recipe more economical, there’s no need to worry about the crab going bad before you use it. I love to have a few cans on my pantry shelf so I’m ready at a moments notice to whip up this Crab Mac and Cheese. Because sometimes you just get that craving for mac and cheese. 🙂
