For our New Years meal I wanted to make something semi-traditional, and also decadent. We started an eating plan on January 3rd, and I wanted to splurge a little before that began! This gluten free gouda macaroni and cheese certainly hit the spot and fulfilled those requirements. It was creamy and tasty, and I will certainly make it again! Gouda ranks high on my list of cheese favorites, but you could substitute cheddar if you prefer.
I served our macaroni and cheese with ribs, sautéed kale (subbed for collards), and black-eyed peas with tomato and onion. The ribs I made were close to this easy-peasy crock pot recipe – so good! I used Stubb’s BBQ sauce, and I rubbed the ribs with the dry ingredients before pouring the liquid over.
You could easily make the macaroni with actual macaroni noodles, and it does not have to be made gluten free. I listed the how-to in the recipe below. Enjoy!
