Gluten Free Macaroni and Cheese in Mason Jars

It’s no secret that I love cooking in mason jars and drinking out of mason jars. I swear, everything tastes better in a mason jar. It’s a fact.

I have a gluten sensitivity, which means sometimes I can eat it and have no issue and sometimes I eat it and regret it.

I have not completely cut it out of my diet. I just can’t. But, I have tried to make small changes here and there. I have been making homemade macaroni and cheese in mason jars for a few years now and decided to attempt it with gluten free noodles a few months ago. No one that I served it to could tell that they were gluten free noodles. These little jars were a delicious addition to a BBQ, plus, just toss a lid on top and save them for leftovers for a few days. These little mason jars full of goodness have become a staple in our casa for BBQs!


Gluten Free Macaroni and Cheese in Mason Jars

Recipe adapted from my fave, The Pioneer Woman-Go here for the recipe details!


  • 4 cups Gluten Free Noodles I love this brand the best!
  • 1 whole Egg Beaten
  • 1/4 cup 1/2 Stick Or 4 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1/4 cup Gluten Free All-purpose Flour Cup4Cup is my fave!
  • 2-1/2 cups Nonfat Milk original recipe uses whole milk
  • 2 teaspoons Dry Mustard
  • 1 pound Grated Cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt More To Taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon Seasoned Salt More To Taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
  • Gluten Free Breadcrumbs optional to top with


To finish the recipe:

  1. Mix the cheese sauce and noodles together in one large pan.
  2. Scoop the mixture into the 4 oz. mason jars. I use this cupcake scooper to do this.
  3. Top with some grated cheese and breadcrumbs (gluten free) and bake at 350 degrees on a baking sheet for about 30 minutes.
  4. Enjoy!

*Head over to The Pioneer Woman’s site for the details on how to make the sauce, etc!

      I do! I forgot to add that! Thanks for the reminder! I added it. I also linked some great GF breadcrumbs! You can also make your own. GF bread is pretty dry, so I just throw a few pieces in the food processor or blender and pulse until I have some breadcrumbs!! Enjoy! xo!
