Keto mac and cheese is extra cheesy and melty! This tastes so much like the real deal that I bet you won’t even miss the carbs.
Are you doing Keto? Half of my family has been doing this diet for over 2 years. My sons have done so well and my hubby just started a few months ago. The problem I have is to find dishes that I can feed my husband and my 17-year-old girl, and have them both love it. They both love Keto Mac & Cheese! This would be a great addition to any family dinner. You might even be able to get your picky eater to eat veggies!
If you’re keto, you know there are a lot of no-nos in your favorite mac & cheese. This version takes out all the issues without sacrificing any flavor. The pork rind topping is totally optional but you will miss out if you don’t top this bad boy with it!
