  • 12 ounces Gluten Free Macaroni cooked al dente
  • 6 slices thick cut gluten free bacon chopped
  • 4-5 green onions chopped, white portions separated from green
  • 3 tablespoons Gluten Free Flour blend
  • salt & black pepper
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 teaspoons hot sauce
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 3 cups sharp yellow cheddar grated, divided
  • 6 ounces pimentos drained & chopped


  • Cook the bacon pieces in a large saucepan until crispy, remove from heat. Take the bacon pieces out of the remaining grease, and drain. Pour out some of the remaining grease, leaving 3-4 tablespoons worth of grease remaining in the pan. Add the white portions of the onions, salt and pepper, to the grease and cook until softened, about 5 minutes, stir in paprika. Add the flour and cook a minute or two more. Whisk in milk and hot sauce, and bring up to a bubble, then allow to thicken a minute or two. Turn off the heat, and stir in the green onions, and two cups of the shredded cheese until melted.
  • Add the pasta to the pan with the cheese sauce. Toss to combine. Fold in the drained pimentos and bacon pieces, pour into a prepared 8×8 baking dish and top with the remaining cheese, brown under the broiler.
