Also no sticking as thanks to feedback I knew to spray well. It actually made 4 dozen perfectly for me I was shocked since it did not look like much macaroni after cooking just that.

Can these be served cold, or are they better warmed and can they be frozen. Thank you for what looks like a beautiful recipe. I'm excited to make these I just had one question. Just wondering in the second picture whether or not that was parsley fresh? I have a 17 yo mac n cheese connoisseur so I added garlic powder, chili powder and a bit of dijon mustard to the cheese sauce.
They panko bread crumbs and parm cheese too on top before baking. Great recipe, though! I made them they are very good, but fell apart, and I used egg, should you pack the mixture into the cups? I'm excited to make them but want to make sure I have enough. You have to use a cup measure for a cup. It's also 8 ounces or if you are using metric, 2 full deciliters is about a cup. I made these last summer for a a party and they were such a hit! Sorry I didn't get around to posting a comment until now. I did not have any issues with them falling apart as some are mentioning here.
Perhaps this is happening when people remove them from the pan without waiting the suggested 5 minutes? I had hoped after the first batch that the macaroni would hold and they did not. Today was a sad day. I used a little more egg than called for and a bit more cheese and then cooled them in the pan completely before trying to take them out.
This gave it a very good taste. They taste great! I will be freezing them tonight, and next week I will let them defrost completely before reheating, adding a little more cheddar on top for a binder and a bit of crisp. Can these be made ahead of time, frozen, then reheated? Need to make bite sized food for Sunday after a busy weekend. I doubled the recipe and did them in regular […].
This is a great recipe and putting these into muffin tins makes it easier for diabetic portion control and to pack for a lunch. Also going to do this to freeze ahead for camping. I took these as an appetizer to a party. On the table filled with a wide variety of delicious appetizers, these disappeared immediately.
Who can resist a small bite of Mac n' cheese? I will be making these again. It took longer to bake mine and I found them easier to remove if they actually browned. I added a bit of dry mustard, but otherwise found the recipe delicious.

Tried these. They are easy and wonderful. I made a batch and froze them for those times when unexpected guests wind up at your door. Just pop them in the oven and snacks are on hand. Everybody loves them, and now I always keep a batch in the freezer. Hi can you substitute the cream cheese for any other cheese? I used Campbell's cheddar cheese soup and shredded cheddar cheese when I make my mac and cheese, I was wondering if that would work? I would love to make them tonight but have no cream cheese and thought I'd ask I am so jazzed t make this recipe.
If you have anon stick muffin tine should I still spray the pan. Or if I use muffin baking cups will the macaroni muffins stick to paper? I realize that by spending more time and copying and pasting into a new document and changing the font, I could read the posts. My question is, why make the posted font so light greys in the first place? Why not make it black? Why use a light grey font rather than just using black?
It's pretty frustrating having to copy the text from your site, paste it into a new document, and then change the font to make it more visible. Will it still hold if I make a slightly more calorie conscious sauce i. With lesser cheese and no cream cheese? I made this tonight. Kids and I loved it. I broiled the muffins for the last 5 minutes to make them browner and crispier. All the kids and I love this recipe. We don't cook it in the oven When we cook for parties, we pop them in the oven for easy finger food! Looks delish!!
I'm planning to make this for my daughter. She loves Mac and Cheese but she's very picky. One question, on Step 5, is the pasta raw or cooked when you stir and combine with cheese and egg? Came out perfect! Substituted with cream cheese chive dip, added dry mustard, and sprinkled Pank o on pan and top and baked 20 minures. Came out of pan instantly. I made these yesterday and added some chopped bacon. Held together perfectly and they were excellent! I have the solution for sticking in the pan. Use a small ice cream scoop and put on a greased cookie sheet.
So good. Bake for 15 minutes. I crushed up funions put on top so they seem fried. I also added hot sauce. Did I say so good.

I would also like to make these in regular muffin cups and wondered how long you baked yours for. I did it. I use regular size cupcake pan double the recipe , and they 30 of them came fine. I just gave them a bit more time to cook until the cheese on top was brown. Soo good. They did not came apart. Thanks for the idea. Question: I cannot eat yellow cheddar, dye-allergy so I only eat white cheddar or other white cheeses. Do you think using Old white cheddar or is there other cheeses you could suggest.
I tested these out for an upcoming baby shower I'll be making them form. They turned out great and I had no problem at all getting them out of the mini muffin tins - altho I generously used cooking spray. Because I'll be making them in advance for the shower I tested both putting some in the fridge and some in the freezer and reheating in the oven the next day. Both options worked, the frozen ones just need to reheat in the oven longer maybe 15ish minutes on low heat instead of less if just put in fridge. Overall they are good but they did taste a little better when eaten the day of being made, and I found they were a tiny bit dry and could use a little more flavor.
Next time I'll add some garlic powder and maybe a bit of dijon mustard. However because they're bite sized they'll naturally be a little more dry than a full pan of mac n cheese, given that the outside of the bit sized piece gets crispy. Definitely a great party snack! So I am making these for my daughter's upcoming baby shower.
I was thinking of making them the day before and just putting in the fridge and cooking them the day of the shower. Would it be as god or should I freeze them. Made these for my husband's work event and they turned out perfectly. They were tasty and I had no issues removing them from the pan, which I was a little worried about. I ran a knife carefully along the edges of each bite after they came out of the over, which I think helped me to remove them easily. I highly recommend this recipe : Thanks! Very simple if directions are followed; I sprayed non-stick olive oil and had no issues with stickage.
Fried Macaroni and Cheese Bites
I added the following ingredients to taste for a more rustic Thanksgiving inspired flavor profile: rosemary, thyme, mustard and garlic powder, cayenne for a kick, fresh parsley and sage, a drizzle of truffle oil and a little brown sugar because I slightly over salted my cheese sauce. I also made a bread crumb topping that I added before sprinkling the remaining cheddar on top which included: equal parts Italian crumbs and grated Parmesan, parsley, some melted butter just enough to lightly coat and a drizzle of truffle oil.
I also hand pressed the mixture down a bit in each compartment of the mini muffin pan and baked an additional 8 minutes after reducing the temperature to So yummy! Great recipe! I made it for Thanksgiving and it was hit. Just made these, yield was 3 dozen. They did stick to the pan a bit and some fell apart. I cooked longer than directed and the bottoms were not crispy as I would like. I will retry this and maybe add more egg? Hoping to make ahead and reheat for a Christmas party want finger food only at the party. Wonder if reheating would firm these up?
Thanks for the idea - taste was great for these! I added Jalepeno and Bacon to the recipe just to add a little variety and OMG those went faster than just the original. Both are amazing and I totally recommend them for a party appetizer. Thank you go sharing. I use Boursin herb cheese and sometimes add fresh bacon bits and finely chopped mushrooms. Gave the recipe a road test tonight to see if they'd be a good addition to our Christmas party. I was thinking they'd be kid friendly, but adult worthy as well.
They were easy to make and quite tasty. Next time I will put a little panko breadcrumb mixture on top for a little crunch, but these were yummy as is. Just made these and they are delicious! Can't wait for my guests to try them. So easy too. Thank you for sharing! I made these last night for my Christmas get together with my squad. These were simply delicious and a HUGE hit!
I made them as the recipe listed, no variations. You definitely have to keep an eye on the butter and flour while cooking as it can burn if overcooked. Can wait to make again for Christmas Eve! I tried these using the bigger muffin papers and they didn't gel well enough. I probably should have adjusted the cooking time. Adding bread crumbs would be a great idea to help with that, too.
Thank you for the recipe! I tried this recipe for New Year's Day buffet. Well, I should have taken a picture of my family eating these little treasures. They went too fast to get a picture. They are now my signature party dish. There is a request for more for the big football game of the year. Thank you for this recipe and idea, they came out perfect. I made this for my family and friends at this year's Christmas party and they loved it.
Thank you for sharing. Just popped these out of the oven I am waiting the suggested 5 minutes but cannot wait to dig in! They look scrumptious!! I made these for a birthday party and they were a huge hit! These are great to make ahead and freeze too! I'm from Brazil and it was the first time I made mac and cheese! I made it for SuperBowl and I loved it! They are all falling apart. Followed the recipe exactly except used bread flour instead of AP. Left in muffin pan extra long. I tried these this morning as I am making them for my grandson's wedding and I wanted to see if they will freeze well.
My problem is how do you get them to brown on the bottom?
If they brown well they won't be so apt to fall apart. I found when I took them from the pan if I place them upside down that helped tremendously. I'm thinking cooking spray may be the culprit as it is wetter. Would butter make them stick? Any help is appreciated. They taste very good though. I made these yesterday for a party. Wow I wanted to call in sick and eat them all myself! Just a tip, if you find out that you, in fact, do not own a mini muffin pan oops , you can use cake pop pans. These are delicious! My granddaughter ate 8 of them!!! I added crushed up potato chips mixed with melted butter on the top for a little crunch!
As my baby said, "Yummy! Made this again and added carmelized onions, ground beef and a little mozzarella. Topped with crumbled potato chips. Came out yummy! I am a vegetarian and absolutely love this idea. What would be a good option for replacing egg in this recipe? These were a HUGE hit at my ladies night. Even though everyone brings low-fat, low carb, somehow my mac and cheese bites were everyones favorite.
Be sure to generously spray your muffin pan with PAM and let them cool the entire 5 minutes. Next time I'm adding crumbled bacon! I made these as a starter for Thanksgiving and they were a huge, huge hit. After scouring the comments for feedback, here were my alterations and everything went super smoothly and tasted great.
The bites stayed intact and they did not stick to the nonstick pan. Also this made 48 mini muffin size cups for me. After spooning in the mac, I gently pressed them down with a spoon before topping with cheese. I made these and let them cool before refrigerating for transport and then reheated with a warming tray for serving. They were perfect! I just made these and they look great! I was a little skeptic putting them in the oven but they turned out wonderfully golden and they hold nicely.
My only issue is that they don't have much flavor for my liking but I'm sure the kids at my son's daycare will love them. I'll adjust the flavor next time I make them. How would you recommend these to be kept warm throughout a snacking event? Would stacking them in a crock pot, after cooking, be a terrible idea? These were a fabulous hit at my Christmas office party! I made these in foil muffin liners I made layers using tin foil to separate each layer. Everyone went crazy over them! I made these only once and they were such a hit and delicious.
A friend made them and said they didn't stick together. Not sure what she did wrong. I am making them again for a new years eve party. Everyone at our Christmas party loved them. I used can milk. Except doubled the receipe. I have now made this recipe twice for parties and it is a big hit both time. Let them cook for 20 minutes and cool for over 5 minutes. Added the Dijon mustard, chili, onion and garlic powders. Thanks for the recipe. Made these for a Christmas party and I didn't allow for enough time for the cooling.
It takes longer than 5 minutes, it was more like minutes to cool. I would make again, just allow more time and purchase another mini muffin pan. Thanks for the recipe!! Has anyone refrigerated these and reheated in the oven? I have been successful doing that with regular mac and cheese but wanted to see if anyone has been successful with this specifically.
These bites were very good and easy to make. I did make a topping of panko bread crumbs, melted butter and dried parsley to give crunch and color. I mounded mind up when filling the muffin cup. Made for a nicer looking bite. Will do again. There were fabulous! I made a couple of tweaks Just because I can't leave anything alone.
To make these extra decadent, I also used heavy cream instead of milk kept the mini bites creamy, and added 5 minutes to the bake time to ensure the outside edges were a little crispy. Like with you, these were gone instantly! I'm also experimenting with other variations Thanks so much for sharing this recipe! Fantastic appetizer. Needed to take a meatless appetizer for two separated occasions. Everyone loved them! My cousin is having an engagement party. This was requested. Everyone loved these little bites when I made them for a previous gathering. Hi Can I make these ahead and reheat?
If yes, oven or microwave? OR, can I make and put ion muffin tin and set in oven in about 3 hours? These look so tasty - I can't wait to try them! I love Mac and Cheese but the bites are much easier to snack on. They look delicious, they sound delicious coming out of the oven, and they taste What a great way to serve mac 'n' cheese!
If I had more time, I think I would have cooked some finely chopped onion in the butter before adding the flour and I would have crushed some saltine crackers and mixed in some butter to go with the cheese that is on top, just to make it that little bit more "like momma used to make. Good but cook 1 to 2 minutes more for crunch. Held together perfectly but remove when cool. Fabulous appetizer! Hope you enjoy it!
In my opinion, this would have been great without the nutmeg. I have made this type of Mac and cheese before with other cheeses, but no nutmeg, and all my kids loved it. I also omit the topping. My husband liked it though with the nutmeg and topping. Sign me up!! It looks so delicious. Pure comfort food! I made this last night and it was delicious! We all loved it and will be making it again this weekend yes again! It is that good!! Im so glad you like the goat cheese too! It just adds a nice lightness to the uber rich mac n cheese! I grew up eating something similar although not with the fancy gouda blend!
Thanks for stopping by Elizabeth…. The beauty of making individual portions allows for some with toppings and some without so everyone can get their mac n cheese just the way they like it! Now this is mac and cheese. A mac and cheese that will make me feel like, uhm, an adult ha!
Love that it freezes well too. You made me smile! I love that feeling of eating mac n cheese because it reminds me of being a kid and eating it every. This looks so good!

Mac N Cheese Bites
Do not overcook. You want the pasta to be al dente While pasta is cooking, in a separate sauce pan, melt the butter on medium high heat. Once the butter is completely melted, add the flour and whisk until completely combined. Allow flour to cook for seconds to allow the nutty flavor of the flour to come out. The first couple of times you add the liquid, it will take quite a bit of whisking to get it to incorporate. Continue this until all milk has been added. Once the liquid has thickened add the nutmeg, and all cheeses stirring until well combined. Once cheese is fully incorporated, pour over the top of cooked pasta and stir to blend well.
Melt butter in same skillet, then stir everything together until all is coated. Once fully mixed together you can sprinkle over top before serving. Pour mac n cheese into a large serving dish and sprinkle topping before serving. You can prepare individual servings and then sprinkle over the top as well. Recipe Video. Recipe Notes.
