Baked Gluten Free Macaroni And Cheese! {Dairy Free}

Ever since going gluten-free, having macaroni and cheese is one food I have not really been able to have! Most gluten-free macaronis were available but I wasn't able to find one that was dairy free! Some recipes I found were to difficult too make or just took too much work than I wanted to do. Luckily with this recipe it is the exact opposite. It is both gluten and dairy free and it doesn't need many ingredients! It's a great side dish for Thanksgiving or really any time or year you crave mac & cheese. I find myself craving it every once in a while and I think this recipe is perfect to fill that craving.

This is recipe #7 of the 14 Days of Gluten-Free Thanksgiving!
  • 8 ounces uncooked gluten free pasta 
  • 2 cups Daiya Cheddar cheese 
  • 3 cups dairy free milk
  • 1/4 cup Earth Balance butter 
  • 1 t. minced garlic             
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons gluten free bisquick or all purpose flour (See link)
  • 1 cup of Daiya mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tablespoons Earth Balance butter 
  • 1 pinch paprika
  • ½ cup gluten free bread crumbs (I use Glutino bread crumbs..see link)

  1. Cook macaroni according to the package directions. Drain.
  2. In a saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add garlic and sauté for 3 to 5 minutes.  Stir in enough gluten free bisquick to make a roux. Add milk to roux slowly, stirring constantly. Stir in cheeses, and cook over low heat until cheese is melted and the sauce is a little thick. Put macaroni in large casserole dish, and pour sauce over macaroni. Stir well.
  3. Melt butter or margarine in a skillet over medium heat. Add breadcrumbs and brown. Spread over the macaroni and cheese to cover. Sprinkle with a little paprika.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes. Serve and enjoy!

  7. What brand of pasta did you use for the above recipe? Our son has Celiac and we are having a difficult time finding pastas and breads that taste good. Thanks in advance!

  8. I've been looking for a good GF & DF mac & cheese recipe that seems simple enough to make for a long time. This looks perfect! Thanks so much for sharing!

  9. This looks good but I must say I have an easier recipe if you are not dairy free....
    16 oz GF pasta cooked al dente
    2 eggs
    1 can of Pet milk
    i box velveeta cheese.
    I large can of Pet milk
    salt and pepper

    Cook pasta according to directions. in the meantime cube up velveeta (i don't use the whole box but my grandmother did!). Mix together whole can of pet milk with 2 eggs add salt and pepper to taste. Combine pasta and cheese cubes in large 9 x 12 baking dish. Pour milk and egg mixture over pasta and cheese. Mix and bake at 350 for 25* 30 minutes. It is so easy and so creamy. I hope someone tries this and enjoys it

  10. Hey for the Mac N' Cheese, can I use dairy products and still have it turn out well?

  11. Yes, you can! This was just a recipe used to make it dairy free but any dairy ingredients used will still make it taste the same and turn out well.
