Mac 'n Cheese Cups

  • 2 cups elbow macaroni 
  • 1 ½ cups mild cheddar cheese
  • 1 ½ cups mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • ½ teaspoon dry mustard powder
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon paprika

1. Adjust oven rack to the middle position. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray muffin tin with nonstick spray. 

2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add macaroni. Cook for 8-10 minutes or until al dente. Do NOT overboil your noodles or they will be gummy.

3. Remove pasta from heat and strain excess water. Return pasta to the pan.

4. Add butter, milk, spices, cheeses, and egg. Mix until cheese is melted and everything is evenly combined.

5. Using an ice cream scooper, fill coated muffin tins with macaroni and cheese. Sprinkle an even amount of panko crumbs to each muffin top.

6. Bake cups for 25 - 30 minutes. Cups will be golden brown and feel formed to the touch.

7. Allow cups to cool for at least 15 minutes before serving.
