mac n' cheese muffin cups

A while back, I found a recipe for mac n' cheese muffin cups so obviously I tried it out...immediately. I have been trying to perfect these little bundles of cheesy joy for a while now and I THINK I've finally discovered the key: asiago cheese. Though it shouldn't be the main ingredient of your mac, even adding just a tad of asiago really binds the other cheeses together (in my case I used mozzarella, a shredded jack/cheddar mix and quality parmesan). Nom.


Ingredients: 
various cheeses, milk, elbow macaroni, 
butter & breadcrumbs.

First, boil macaroni until cooked al dente and strain. Turn heat down and add macaroni back to pot. Add cheeses of your choice [I recommend incorporating asiago], 1/4 cup of milk and a tablespoon of butter. Mix on low heat until macaroni is coated in melted cheese. Spoon macaroni and cheese into muffin tin. Top with panko and broil until top is browns.

{Don't forget to grease the muffin pan!}

I think my favorite part about these was that they actually stuck together in a muffin shape! They didn't crumble apart... making it easier to eat with a fork or your hands.. oops.

So delish.
