First you make the mac and cheese. Then you add muffin cups to a muffin tin. Then you add the mac and cheese and sprinkle bread crumbs on top. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes. That is it, and you have an easy and delicious side dish or meal.

Mac and Cheese Muffins Recipe
8 oz. Elbow Macaroni
8 oz. Sharp Cheddar Cheese
2 tsp. Cornstarch
1 cup Milk
1/2 cup Panko Bread Crumbs
1 tsp. Melted Butter
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place liners in a muffin pan and spray with cooking spray. Cook the macaroni according to the package directions. Drain and return to the pan. Add the cheese and stir until melted. Whisk together the cornstarch, egg, milk, and pour over the macaroni and mix. Fill each cup with the macaroni mixture. Combine the butter and breadcrumbs and mix well. Divide crumb mixture evenly over each muffin cup. Bake for 20 minutes.
NOTE: I did not have panko bread crumbs, so I used Italian style bread crumbs instead. I also added in some shredded mozzarella cheese. I doubled up my recipe to accommodate for a large party.
