Preptime   35 min

10 slices bacon, chopped
1/2 medium yellow onion, chopped
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 cups milk
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/3 cup bourbon
2 cups shredded gouda cheese
2 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
12 ounces dry macaroni, cooked according to package directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cook bacon in a 10-inch cast iron skillet until crisp. Remove it with a slotted spoon and set aside. Drain off all but 2 tablespoons of bacon grease. Add onion to skillet and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in flour and cook for 2 minutes. Gradually whisk in milk. Stir in salt, pepper, thyme, nutmeg, cayenne pepper, and bourbon. Simmer for about 3 minutes, or until slightly thickened. Reduce heat to low and gradually whisk in Gouda cheese and 2 cups of cheddar cheese. Stir in cooked pasta and half of bacon. Sprinkle remaining bacon and cheddar cheese on top. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes.
