Mac N Cheese With So Delicious & gardein

"Hamburger" Helper macaroni.
gardein makes an impressive burger. Last week, I just tried out their Ultimate Beefless Burger and believe it is one of the best versions existing right now. It is also reasonably priced, at about one dollar and some change per patty, while others are astronomically higher. Also, on the product front, I'm absolutely enjoying So Delicious alternative cheeses more so than originally conceived. I wasn't sold on the idea, having been stuck on Field Roast Chao forever, claiming that as grocery store winner. Yet, my social media pals are singing the praises and I caved, attractive to the green packaged mozzarella.

gardein's ultimate beefless burger is amazing!

I first made the burgers piled with Field Roast Chao Tomato Cayenne, mushrooms, red onions, and lots of ketchup.
So Delicious Dairy Free Foods have stepped up the bat with this tasty cheese that truly does melt great.
It only made sense to blend these two products together in a sensational macaroni and cheese dish that reminds one of simple childhood pleasures-- mashing a pan seared patty to smithereens and joining it with creamy macaroni and cheese.

  1. I tried the So Delicious Cheddar and thought it was okay. I'll have to try the mozzarella. I agree with you about gardein's burgers. I love them and I feel they have been kind of underrated.

    1. Eek! I find cheddar to be a difficult challenge. I will try it out though. I agree about gardein. They have fantastic burgers, but everyone seems to rave more so about Beyond Burger these days.

  2. I need to keep an eye out for the So Delicious shreds; your mac & cheese looks great! :)

  3. That mac and cheese looks perfect! We occasionally get Gardein products in Prague, I'll keep an eye out for those burgers.

    1. Thank you! It’s great that you get gardein in Prague. That’s nice to know in case I visit in the future! ;)
