This Mac & Cheese Pie is everything we've ever dreamed of and more

When you place all your foodie hopes and dreams for the week in one cheat meal, you need it to do double duty.

A classic option, for instance, would be the chip sandwich; golden, crispy chips nestled in buttered fresh white bread. Taco fries or nachos both pull their weight too.

Now, however, M&S have unveiled a serious contender for the ultimate comfort food.

Ladies and gentlemen, may we introduce... the Mac ‘n’ Cheese & Bacon Pie.

The concept of combining deliciously gooey mac ‘n’ cheese with the crust of a pie originates from Scotland, and it was a recent trip to Edinburgh that inspired the M&S food team to create the new dish.

To make it especially moreish it’s topped with (wait for it) a smoked bacon crumble.

“Mac ‘n’ cheese is the ultimate in comfort food and we’ve taken it a step further by putting it in a pie for a truly indulgent treat." says Matt Dawson, pie product developer.

"It’s a first on the high street and we’re sure customers are going to love it as much as we do!”

Eh, yeah Matt. We are definitely going to love this.

The Mac ‘n’ Cheese & Bacon Pie (€4.50) is available in M&S stores now. We'll be picking one up on the way home from the gym...
