Macaroni and Cheese Salad is a simple side dish that is packed full of carbs and protein. This is a recipe that my Mother-in-Law made for my husband growing up. It is super affordable, and the flavor combination may sound strange to some, but it really is delicious!

You may think this one is a little strange. I did until I gave it a try. It is super easy to make, and you can use bacon that you fry or microwave bacon. We like the addition of the boiled eggs because it makes this dish protein filled. It is a very affordable recipe that helps stretch your grocery budget.

When my husband told me he ate this often as I child I was surprised. After giving it a try I realized how good it is.
