For The Mac And Cheese

  • 1 lb gluten free macaroni noodes dry
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 2 cups milk
  • ½ tbsp gluten free flour
  • 1 tsp Magical Seasoning Mix
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper

For The Breading

  • Cook the dry pasta according to the directions on the package. Undercook it slightly by about a minute or two. Drain and set aside.
  • Melt butter in a saucepan and add the seasoning, pepper, and flour. Cook for about 30 seconds and then add the milk.
  • Stir the milk and flour mixture until it starts to thicken and then add the cheese and stir. Turn off the heat.
  • In a bowl gently mix together the pasta and cheese sauce. Set aside.
  • Allow to cool for about 30 minutes.
  • Set up 3 dishes. One with flour, another with eggs and milk, and a third with breadcrumbs. Split the seasoning between the 3 dishes.
  • After the pasta has cooled down make balls with it. The size doesn't matter very much, between the size of a ping pong ball and a baseball.
  • Fry them at 350° for about 3 minutes or until the outside gets crispy and brown.
  • Serve them as a side or a snack with some bbq sauce to dip or with tomato soup.


My passion is supporting those who need to be gluten free. After my family had to transition to eating gluten free I realized how difficult it is. It is more than finding a recipe. It is about how to navigate social situations, deal with isolation, and other things that come along with it. I live in Oregon with my family, cats, and chickens.
