This Maple Bacon Vegetable Corn Recipe is the perfect side to any main dish!
I am thrilled to be partnering with Progresso today to bring you a perfectly simple side dish that pairs nicely with their Chicken Rice with Vegetable Soup. My family loves to have soup for lunch or dinner all year long. Such a simple and satisfying meal.
I paired some of my favorite ingredients to this corn recipe. I love the sweet and savory flavor combination! You get a hint of pure maple with each bite of corn, vegetables and bacon pieces. The whole family is going to love this one. My boys enjoy the sweetness from the maple syrup and corn along with the salty crunchy bacon pieces. Our 2 year old likes to eat the bright peppers first. A little something for everyone.
Start by sautéing your onion and red bell peppers until slightly softened.
Add your corn and bacon up next.
A nice drizzle of pure maple syrup.
A few pinches of parsley and give a good stir. Let simmer on low until you are ready to serve. Enjoy!
Colorful, sweet and savory. My favorite!

My Skillet Baked Mac and Cheese with Bacon Pretzel Topping is a perfect dinner that everyone will love!
I am thrilled to be partnering with Safeway today to bring you a perfect Summer Entertaining recipe today. I developed a new mac and cheese and can’t say enough about it!
I was given a Safeway Gift Card to shop for all of my ingredients to develop this recipe. Safeway has always been one of my favorite grocery stores. My family grew up visiting their stores throughout our city.
There’s nothing I love more than creating an ultra cheesy mac and cheese recipe. I thought it would be sinfully delicious to add crunchy bacon and a pretzel crumb topping. You are going to love this one!
Safeway is having a great Summer Savings Sweepstakes. They choose 5 winners every day that will each win a $100 store gift card. Enter HERE.
I chose to highlight these two products you can find at Safeway. Tillamook® Medium Cheddar Cheese and Keebler® Town House® Pretzel Thins Oven Baked Crackers for the topping. 2 of my favorites.
I used the Town House Pretzel Thins and crushed them up for the topping with the bacon.
You’ll make a simple cheese sauce that gets added to your cooked pasta.
Add the cheese sauce to your noodles.
Top your mac with more cheese
Add your pretzel topping over the cheese.
Add lots of bacon pieces on top and your ready to bake!
Crispy topping with cheesy goodness underneath. Perfect dinner for entertaining your guests.

Skillet Baked Mac and Cheese with Bacon Pretzel Topping
Prep time: 15 min | Cook time: 20 min | Total time: 35 min
- 3/4 pound dry elbow pasta
- 1 stick unsalted butter
- 1/2 cup all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
- 2 cups whole milk
- 3 cups Tillamook® Medium Cheddar Cheese, shredded and divided
- 1 cup finely crushed Keebler® Town House® Pretzel Thins Oven Baked Crackers
- 12 strips cooked, crumbled bacon pieces
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cook pasta according to package directions. I recommend cooking the pasta a minute less than the directions. Drain and set aside for a few minutes.
- To prepare roux, melt butter into a medium saucepan over medium heat. Once melted whisk in flour, salt and pepper. Stir and cook for 3-4 minutes until color of roux gets slightly darker. Slowly whisk in milk, stirring continuously until thickened, about 2 minutes. Reduce heat to a simmer and stir in 2 cups of cheese until melted.
- Transfer cooked pasta to 12-inch cast iron skillet over low heat. Pour cheese sauce over top, stirring to combine.
- Top mac and cheese with remaining 1 cup of shredded cheese, pretzel crumbs and bacon pieces. Bake for 20-25 minutes until cheese is melted and hot. Serve warm.

You might remember a couple months ago when I wrote about making time for family meal time. I have been trying to make it a goal to sit down together more often during the busy week with my family.
I’d say overall we’ve been doing pretty good. Not perfect by any means, but doing it more often.
One of the things Dr. William Doherty who has studied the importance of family mealtime recommended was to have the kids help clean up after the meal.
