Bacon is just more fat. Mac and cheese needs an acid like a bit of mustard, malt vinegar, or hot sauce to cut through it.

>What is sodium citrate and what does it do to food?
It's a emulsifier and a salt. It allows you to melt cheese without the oil and milk solids separating.

Thomas Jefferson recommended Nutmeg, but I confess that I have never tried it.

Sauteed onions are very good, however, caramelized onions are too sweet, so don't cook them for too long.

You can also try black olives, broccoli, or mushrooms, all are quite good, and my mother in law makes it with a combination of the three.
