Mac n Cheese Muffins


If you are looking for a great little muffin that your children will love..this is it! You can't go wrong with mac n cheese can you? They were still warm from the oven when my granddaughter dropped by and she deemed them delicious! They are good hot or cold, wonderful for packing in lunches or as a snack.

  • 2 cups elbow macaroni
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt 
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 cups cheese, shredded, I used half cheddar and half mozzarella mixed together
  • 1/2 cup bacon, fried and crumbled
  • 2/3 cup bread crumbs
  • 2 teaspoons butter, melted
  • Paprika
  1. Cook macaroni until done but still a bit firm, drain and pour macaroni back in the pot. Stir in 2 tablespoons butter and beaten egg until macaroni is completely coated.
  2. Stir in cheese, milk, and bacon, reserving 1/2 cup of cheese for the topping.
  3. Spoon into well greased muffin tins.
  4. Mix together bread crumbs and 2 teaspoons melted butter until crumbly.
  5. Top muffins with reserved cheese and the crumbly bread crumbs.
  6. Sprinkle paprika over the top.
  7. Bake in 350ยบ oven for 25 minutes, until tops are browned.
  8. Remove from oven and allow muffins to cool 5 minutes before removing them from the pans.
  9. Yield: 18 regular size muffins

  1. I may try this, but I'll use homemade organic bread crumbs and most likely leave the bacon out (or half of them).

  4. This sounds great and I'm in the process of making this, but at what point is the milk supposed to be mixed in? I think there might be a typo. Thanks.
