Gluten Free Mac and Cheese

I miss mac and cheese. Like, the really good macaroni and cheese that’s baked in a pan and contains your entire fat intake limits for the week.

In honesty, since having to convert to my gluten free lifestyle, I don’t think I’ve tried a replacement.  That changes tonight. Check it:

Gluten Free Mac and Cheese with Quinoa

Gluten Free Mac and Cheese

While This recipe might not necessarily meet my requirements for insane amounts of calories induced by unhealthy ingredients, I still embrace it for it’s potential for deliciousness (and maintain my right to add unholy amounts of cream in place of non-fat milk etc.).

If you are not on the gluten-free bandwagon, you can add Panko Bread crumbs to the top of this dish.  You can also throw some gluten free breadcrumbs on this dish.  I haven’t tried those breadcrumbs in any recipes yet, but may bust a move. (I have however tried the graham style crumbs before – obviously not on mac and cheese – word to the wise they taste like dirt.)

    Yum that looks so good! And for the gluten free bread crumbs, I have found that gluten free bread whether store bought or homemade is very crumbly and the homemade bread dries out fast so I always save the crumbs and whatever butt ends that have dried out…dry them all the way out, process them to make bread crumbs and put in a ziplock…then I just keep adding to it whenever. Take those crumbs, add some herbs and then cover tp half a chicken breast or fish fillet and bake…so yumyum!

      Such a good idea! That bread does dry out sooo fast! What herbs do you add? I’m going to be trying a recipe that calls for Salt and Vinegar Chips crushed up on top of chicken. I’ve got high hopes! 🙂

      Anytime! We made it the other night and dug it! (I did use cream instead of lowfat milk! 😉
