...is that all of it never makes it into the recipe. I will, straight up, eat this ish by the fistful. It's so easy and delicious! Alls I do is add soy sauce and a little liquid smoke to some coconut flakes and bake until crispy.
This Mac n' Cheeze Monday is brought to you by way of Tyler Florence. When I saw his version with peas and bacon, I was intrigued.

Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Add the onion, garlic, and thyme and cook for about 5 minutes until soft. Stir in the peas and coconut bacn. Add salt and pepper to taste.
To serve, sprinkle the pea mixture on top and snarf like it's nobody's business! Mmm hmmm.
