Gluten-Free Bacon Mac & Goat Cheese Recipe

I recently made a Bacon Pesto Stuffed Pork Burger using my new Good Cook cast iron grill pan. Using a cast iron grill pan was a ton of fun, and I especially loved seeing the grill marks all over the burgers. Well, I just received a Good Cook Cast Iron Bacon Press to try out, so I decided to create a recipe around my favorite ingredient – bacon.

I usually cook my bacon on a baking sheet in the oven, so using the grill pan and bacon press were totally new to me. The bacon cooked super fast, and what I liked most about the press was that since I heated it up on the grill pan before putting the bacon down, I was able to cook the bacon evenly by having one side of it on the grill pan and the other side being pushed down by the warm bacon press. Another benefit to using the bacon press was that hot grease didn’t spit all over me because it was being kept down by the press.

This Bacon Mac & Goat Cheese recipe is a play on macaroni and cheese, but it’s gluten-free and doesn’t contain cow’s milk. What I really like about having the bacon in it, is that it added a nice subtle salty flavor.

Gluten-Free Bacon Mac & Goat Cheese Recipe

Gluten-Free Bacon Mac & Goat Cheese Recipe



16 oz gluten-free shells or macaroni noodles

bacon – 1 or 2 slices per bowl

16 oz (1lb) chopped cooked broccoli

Ingredients For Sauce:

2 tablespoons ghee or butter

2 ¼ cups almond milk

8 oz goat cheese

½ cup vegetable or chicken broth

1 cup almond flour

1 tablespoon oregano

1 tablespoon parsley

½ tablespoon garlic powder

½ tablespoon mustard powder


Making It:

  1. Cook the pasta as directed.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, cook the bacon slices. I cooked mine on a cast iron pan on the stove, using a cast iron bacon press. Once the bacon is done cooking, chop it into little pieces.
  3. Drain the pasta. In the now empty pot, put in the ghee or butter and heat it up until melted. Add in the almond flour and whisk until combined. Then put in the rest of the sauce ingredients and let it simmer until it starts to thicken – about 7 minutes.
  4. Add the pasta back into the pot, along with the broccoli, and stir to combine. The sauce will continue to thicken as the pasta and broccoli is mixed in.
  5. After you plate each portion, top with sliced bacon.

    When you use almond milk, do you use unsweetened or regular?

    • I make my own and it’s unsweetened. I usually recommend unsweetened if it’s store bought because there will be less additives :)

  2. This looks amazing. Bacon & any kind of cheese are always my favorites!

  3. Holy bacon!!
