In a large mixing bowl, combine cheddar cheese, cottage cheese, sour cream, egg and salt to taste. Stir well. Gently stir in cooked macaroni and bacon bits.

Lightly grease a 2 quart baking dish. Carefully pour the macaroni and cheese mixture into the baking dish.

Bake uncovered for 45 minutes. Remove from oven and let sit for 15-20 minutes before spooning into your plate.
