Macaroni and cheese is a classic and a much-loved favorite at my house. I decided that I would try something a little different and instead of making a big pan of it, I cut the recipe down a bit and made 12 individual servings using a muffin tin. They are delicious. Baking them in a muffin tin makes a nice cheese crust around the outside of each “cup” of macaroni and cheese.
Spray 12 muffin tins with cooking spray. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
Spoon approximately 1 tablespoon macaroni into each muffin tin (you should have used half the macaroni or 1 cup for the first layer). Divide the butter into 1 teaspoon portions in each muffin tin on top of the macaroni. Place 1 tablespoon of cheese in each muffin cup. Divide the remaining 1 cup of macaroni evenly among the 12 cups. Divide the remaining cheese evenly among the 12 muffin cups. Place 1 teaspoon of milk in each muffin cup.
Place in the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Take out and carefully stir each muffin cup to combine the macaroni and cheese. Bake for another 10-12 minutes. Let cool slightly before serving.
Makes 12 (small) servings.
My kids really like this recipe because they say It taste just like pizza. Besides getting rave reviews at home, this was another popular side we used to have on the TaylorMade Menu in the cafe. This is a lovely way to use stale bread or when you have fresh farmers market tomatoes. You can use any kind you like; I have made this recipe with all kinds—red, yellow and orange tomatoes, grape tomatoes, heirloom tomatoes, etc.
