Crab Macaroni and Cheese (GLUTEN-FREE)

My girls (and hubby) were lovin' this recipe! ME, I do NOT eat seafood, NO WHERE, NO HOW, NEVER! I eat NOTHING from the sea. (sorry everyone!) My girls and hubby however LOVE it all. And crab is there new favorite favorite thing. I usually just whip them up a stir fry and call it a day. It's not too often that I can create my own recipe from scratch but tonight I felt inspired to try and use some things up in my refrigerator. And it was a HIT, a HUGE HIT! Crab Macaroni and Cheese (I really wish I liked Crab it looked so good! Believe me, I tried, I got it all the way to my mouth and then I just want to gag from the smell of "fish") But, for all those folks out there who LOVE seafood, my family says you must try this!

  1. I adore seafood, so this looks amazing to me!

  2. Oh, yes, seafood lover here, and Crab Macaroni and Cheese sounds fabulous to me. Thanks for sharing. I stopped by from Prairie Story Recipe Swap Thursday. My participating post is at this link:

  3. Looks good!
    Just a left the crab out of the ingredient list and the instructions!

  4. I am wondering if this would also work with imitation crab. We often have that on hand and I never know what to do with it besides make sandwiches. This recipe is enticing me to see if it works...

  5. Stopping by from TNAT.

    I like seafood so I think I would like this. There is a fairly new restaurant close to our city that serves all kinds of different mac and cheese dishes. I wonder if this is one of the items on their menu. =p

  6. Yummy, thanks for sharing.

  9. looks delicious and sounds like a great recipe! thanks for sharing! btw, followed you, hope you can follow me back! thank you! have a great weekend! :) -PinayMum - Mommy's Life Around...!

  10. Be still, my heart. I can't believe I used an entire pound of fresh crab on crab cakes before I saw this! It will be another month before the seafood truck comes my way. Sigh... Oh, the cheesy goodness is to die for!

  11. wow, this is mouth-watering! i wanna pick out the crabs!:p

  12. It's the opposite in our family--I'm the only one who loves seafood, but boy do I love it! Mixing crab into a big pot of our homemade mac-n-cheese would horrify my children. They would no less horrified if I spat in the pot. :)

    Perhaps I can set aside a portion and add in the crab meat?

    Thanks for linking to Food on Fridays!
