Billy and I really liked this variation of the recipe. The buffalo sauce really worked well with the vegan cheese sauce.

  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 teaspoons granulated garlic
  • 2 teaspoons dried chopped onions
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon yellow mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Frank’s RedHot Sauce

Breadcrumb topping

  • 1 cup breadcrumbs

  • 1 tablespoons Frank’s RedHot Sauce
  1. Cook the pasta according to package directions.

    • It was! Of course I love hot sauce on pretty much anything. When I bought my new fridge, a big concern was door space for all my hot sauces🙂

    • Thanks! I have two of those mugs. They are amazing…bought them on clearance at Target about 5 years ago and they haven’t chipped at all.

  1. Bread crumbs always completely ruin a good mac & cheese. I will never understand why people feel the need to do that. If you want a tiny bit of crunch, put a bit of grated cheese on top and then go under a broiler for 2-3 min. Other than that, interesting take on mac.

    • Tastes vary, that’s for sure. I feel the same way about fancy restaurants that put foam on top of your food. Yuck!

  3. This is so awesome. I JUST posted a mac and cheese recipe, and mine came out looking a lot like yours. BUT…your Buffalo idea is simply genius! I think I’ll have to try this recipe next!
