Macaroni & Cheese Muffins

I love macaroni and cheese but tend not to eat it because of its unhealthiness factor.  These macaroni & cheese muffins are the perfect solution  because they are already in serving size form.  They are so good!!! I had to stop myself from eating as many as I would have liked to.  I made 24 or you can cut all the ingredients and half and make twelve,

Macaroni & Cheese Muffins (Source: Dinosaurscan’teatpizza.com)

Yields 24 servings

Ingredients:

16 ounces elbow macaroni
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 stick unsalted butter
4 cups shredded cheddar cheese
4 eggs
2 cups milk
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 400. Line 2  12-cup muffin tins with liners.  ( I just sprayed mine with Pam and that worked.)
You’ll want to put your muffin tin on a baking sheet to catch any overspill during the baking process.
Cook the macaroni according to package directions, drain, and return to the pot.
Put pot back on the stove over low-medium heat.
Add butter, garlic, dry mustard, and about ½ the cheese.
Stir for a few moments until things begin to melt.
Combine eggs and milk together, stir, and add to the pot of macaroni.
Add the remaining cheese slowly, and stir. Let sit on the heat for a few minutes. It will be very soupy; that’s okay.It all works out. PROMISE.
Ladle the macaroni soup into your muffin pan and bake for 15 – 20 minutes or until bubbly.
