Looking for a dish to wow your guests during the holidays? This VEGAN Mac & Cheese with Everything Bagel Breadcrumbs is sure to impress even your non-vegan guests.


  • 1 package follow your heart medium cheddar slices
  • 1 package follow your heart American slices
  • 2/3 container follow your heart cream cheese (it's an 8 oz. container)
  • 1 package Follow Your Heart Cheddar Shreds
  • 1/2 container Follow Your Heart Parmesan Shreds
  • 1-2 cups regular unsweetened soy milk
  • 2 tbsp smooth Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp hot sauce
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 1 pound elbow macaroni
  • 1 cup plain breadcrumbs
  • 1/3 cup everything but the bagel seasoning
  • Salt to taste
  • 3 tbsp melted vegan butter


  1. In a pot over medium heat, add in your almond milk, medium cheddar slices (chopped), American slices (chopped), cream cheese, cheddar shreds, parmesan shreds, onion powder, garlic powder, Dijon mustard, hot sauce, and salt to taste. Start with less soy milk at first, and add more as the cheese all starts to melt. You want this to be a thick, creamy sauce.

  2. Cook your elbow macaroni in salted water until cooked through, drain well & return to the pot.
  3. Add as much cheese sauce as you’d like (some people like it less saucy, some like it more saucy), and mix well to combine. Pour the macaroni and cheese into a baking dish.
  4. In a small bowl, add in your breadcrumbs, melted vegan butter, and everything but the bagel seasoning. Mix well. Spread evenly overtop the mac and cheese.

  5. Place under the broiler until the breadcrumbs are golden brown. Top with fresh chives if desired, and serve.
