I have really been on a cheese kick recently. I just can’t get enough! This last weekend, I wasn’t just craving cheese, but some macaroni and cheese! It has been forever since I have had any! Macaroni and cheese used to be such a comfort food for me …
This summer I have also had such a love affair with chicken sausages. I have gotten a couple different kinds at Costco, and I just love them! We’ve been grilling them a lot, or just eating them cold! I decided to combine the chicken sausages and macaroni & cheese, and make it Quinoa and Cheese!
Do I miss macaroni? Sometimes. Not when eating this though! I think the quinoa makes it creamier than macaroni ever could!
Chicken Sausage Quinoa and Cheese
Print this recipe!
1 cup uncooked quinoa
2 cups water
4 chicken sausage links, cut into bite sized pieces
1/2 cup milk
1 tbsp arrowroot
1 tsp dry mustard
salt/pepper to taste
hot sauce to taste
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the quinoa and water, and a dash of salt. Cook about 20 minutes, or until all the water is absorbed.
Add in the chicken sausage and cheese, stirring until the cheese melts.
In a small bowl (or measuring cup), combine the milk, mustard, and arrowroot. Stir with a whisk to combine. Add to the quinoa mixture. Heat until the mixture thickens slightly – about 10 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Serve with hot sauce, if desired.
Plus, it is another way to eat chicken sausage!
Have a great day!
