Slow cooker Gluten Free Mac and Cheese is the dish for gooey cheesy goodness!

How many recipes can turn out as failures before I run screaming?? Hmm? Any idea?

Slow Cooker Gluten Free Mac & Cheese

Yeah, it’s been one of THOSE WEEKS.
I don’t know if it was the atmospheric pressure, the humidity or I just wasn’t holding my mouth right (this is ALWAYS my brother’s reason for something not working the first time!).

I had three GREAT (I knew thought) recipes I was working on and EVERY. SINGLE. ONE failed to meet my standards for the blog.
One tasted fantastic, but fell in the middle!!  The next one looked like a glob, but tasted really good and the chocolate one looked ok, but was as chewy as a rubber ball!! Urggghhh!

I refuse to give up on creating but at this point I need some help HELP!

Enter comfort food!!

Of course, I have several dishes I seek comfort by consuming; I mean what can’t be improved by chocolate, chocolate chip cookies or MAC and CHEESE?
In a word, nothing.

So let’s go with mac and cheese with all that cheesy flavor, stringy warm deliciousness and the soft, soothing texture…win-win-WIN!

And to make this mac and cheese even more perfect: gluten free AND slow cooker!!

Even though my emotions are telling me I want a big ole bowl right now, some things are just better if you have to wait on them. And this is one of those dishes.

Although it is a slow cooker recipe, it will be ready in less than four hours, so a perfect lunch time dish on the weekend (or week day).  I’m thinking perfect dish for the kids in the summertime for lunch.

I love switching up the basic flavor. Sometimes I make it using cheddar cheese or gouda or even pepper jack cheese to stimulate the tastebuds and conversation: ‘Man, are you sure this is mac and cheese?’ ‘  or ‘Wow, a little spicy tonight huh?’  ‘Man, what is this flavor, it tastes a little strong, but I LIKE it! Way to go mom!’   Thank you, thank you very much; just a little something I whipped up for my loved ones.

Yeah, now that I’ve eaten a bowlful some of this fantastic gluten free mac and cheese, I will head back to my mixing bowls, cake pans, oven and let the magic begin (again!).

About Jenny


  1. Sounds delicious, are the noodles not cooked when added??

  2. How many does this recipe feed?

    • I would say 4 to 6 servings. Just depends on how much a person enjoys it (my daughter could sit down with the slow cooker and a spoon, so if she is around, it makes one serving!)

  3. Any suggestions for doubling this recipe? Should I cook it longer on high before lowering heat?

    • I have never tried doubling the recipe. Try cooking on high for 45 minutes and low for three hours and then check it. I don’t think the cook time should change much. If you make it I would love to know how it turns out and if it took longer.
