Amped Up Boxed Mac & Cheese (Recipe)

Super Easy & Gluten-Free!

  • 1 box Annie's Homegrown Brown Rice Mac & Cheese
  • 1 cup diced broccoli, raw
  • 3/4 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • Generous sprinkle/shake: seasoning of your choice (I used FlavorGod Garlic Lover's Seasoning)
  • 1 jalapeño, seeds removed and diced (optional)

Prepare mac & cheese as directed on the box, and preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Stir in broccoli, jalapeño and seasoning.  Add 1/2 cup shredded cheese, stir and place in oven-safe ramekin or baking dish.  Heat for about 15 minutes.  Remove from oven and immediately top with the remaining 1/4 cup shredded cheese.  

I served this with DoctorKracker Cheddar Pumpkin Seed crackers, pictured.  (Note: the crackers were not Gluten-Free)

Suggestions:  Find a block of good, aged sharp yellow cheddar and shred it yourself.  It makes a big difference - and strengthens the shoulders & biceps in the process.
