In a large mixing bowl, carefully stir pasta, cheese sauce, and egg until evenly mixed and pasta is evenly coated. Spoon mac and cheese into mini muffin tins and top each with a small pinch of remaining cheese. Bake at degrees F for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool 5 minutes before gently removing the bites. Your email address will not be published. Rate this recipe. Notify me of follow-up comments by email. Notify me of new posts by email. I have an interesting question I like your pictures of the macaroni bites. Whenever I make oven baked macaroni, it always falls apart.
How do you get each macaroni bite to hold together without a cupcake liner? I haven't made these yet, but I am guessing it's the egg that helps to holds them together.
Mini Macaroni and Cheese Bites
I am anxious to try them! It is important to have the correct ratio of noodles to sauce. Too many noodles for the sauce, it will really apart. I made these for a senior citizens pot luck I love the recipes, but I am having a hard time reading the grey on white print.. For those of us who have a vision problem, it would be a big help.. I have to re write the recipes in a larger, black ink format so I can read them My friend has less than twenty vision so I use font arial black in size 14 or 16 with a bright yellow background.
But, why can't you just print your recipes, or whole your site in fact, in a font color that more contrast instead of having your users go through the trouble to copy past etc. But,yYou are not the only one! From recipes to business cards etc seems to be the "cool" "IN" thing to do, and it truly is maddening. I don't understand the point. Do you know the yield to this recipe? Also, do you think these could be frozen and then rejuvinated, or will that just disturb the whole crunchy thing?
Can you make them ahead and freeze them, if so do you suggest bake them first, cool them then freeze them? I am planning to make these for a party next week, would like to know ahead of time, how to do the last minute heating without losing the consistency of them. I would not recommend microwaving anything. You will only get more water into your product. Thaw them and cook on a low heat just like you mentioned.
Did you happen to make these ahead of time? If so, did you bake them, freeze them and then heated them up on low heat? I would also like to know how they turned out. Is it better to freeze them before or after baking? I assume after baking to make them hold its shape? Would it work to freeze it before baking using cupcake liners, then to thaw and bake? Have a kids party coming up and I desperately need make ahead recipes. I freeze mine uncooked using mini muffin papers with the tray tied in a freezer bag.
Take them out to thaw which is a short time, then bake. Each recipe give you I too would like to know the yield for this recipe. Also does the mixture stick together well. I think this will be such a hit when I make it for them. Hello, I'm interested in trying this enticing recipe - what level do we place the oven rack, and how many does your recipe make??
Recommended way to reheat? I only have 1 pan and want to make more than that for a party so I'm gonna have to make two separate batches and keep them in a container. Microwave fine? Or would some time in the oven again be better? If you happen to get a response as to whether they can be prepared ahead of time and put into the freezer, please let me know.
I would like to make them for a party in August. I know noodles like to absorb any moisture they can so I am not sure how this will effect how dry or cheesy they will be. If you try, please keep me posted. Although I haven't made this yet I am basing my rating on my cooking experience I know in my bones this will be a grand slam! I'm wondering if anyone has used silicone mini muffin pans instead of metal I used cornstarch and they are not holding together so well.
I did a test run for a potluck and wanted to make them gluten free so i could eat them. I wont make them gluten free for the potluck. This recipe made two trays of generously filled mini cups of mac and cheese deliciousness. Although both cup cake trays were non-stick, one tray refused to let those little guys free where they simply popped out of the other tray. It was odd. Make sure you spray the trays really well. They stick together well and were the perfectly amount of crisp. The kids loved them dipped in ketchup where I thought they were a tad bit dry. A cool recipe I would make again. I wonder if you could make these, freeze them in the pan and then prior to serving them, bake them.
I am also eager to know. If you ended up trying this for your kids birthday, please let me know the best way to make ahead but still have them taste fresh. I have a kids party in a month. They were very good but didn't quite hold together as well as frozen ones that are premade. Wondered if fine breadcrumbs would help. Will try but they were good. How many does this make? IF so, your thoughts on doing that before or after cooking?
I really need to know the approximate number it makes however. Made these for my daughter's birthday with her friends from school. This recipe sounds great! I was thinking about making them for a party. About how many does this recipe make? There will be about 40 people at the party so wondering if the recipe needs to be doubled? These look great.
I am making them right now for an appetizer for an event. I am adding bacon bits to the top to satisfy my pregnant daughter in law who is craving bacon!
Bacon Mac and Cheese Bites
Thanks for the recipe! I love mac and cheese and these look great. I'm trying to plan for an upcoming event. Can these be frozen and reheated for serving? Made this recipe. Sprayed my non-stick muffin pans adequately and they stuck to both pans. Have you any secrets to share about getting them out of the pans?
I just sprayed mine generously with cooking spray and didn't have a problem getting them out. I sliced the outer sides with a knife to make sure they weren't stuck before lifting. I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have anymore questions. I made these for a party over the weekend. I added 1tsp mustartd powder secret ingredient from another recipe.
I think the cream cheese can be taken out - I did not find that it added anything to the flavor compared to my other recipe that uses the same of the rest of the ingredients. I also needed to cook the bites significantly longer than the recipe calls for in order for the bites to stay together - at least 20 minutes, maybe longer. I was disappointed with this recipe. They weren't nearly cheesy enough, and once I got them out of the pan they fell apart. I love Mac-n-Cheese so I'm sure I will love these.
I'm sure the kids at family gathering will too. I want to try them for Thanksgiving or Christmas Brunch. This is the best of the best that I have made using Internet recipes The egg is a binder, but the cream cheese also has stabilizers in it. Leaving them in the tin for 5 to 7 minutes will help them congeal and you can take them out, arrange them on a platter for a party and they will stay together.
You know what's even better than baking these yummy bites in mini-muffin tins? Baking them in a whoopie pie or muffin top pan. Nom nom nom. Just made these, and they turned out great!!
Fried Mac & Cheese Bites
They are delicious!! I'm impressed that they are coming out the the pan so well. Will make again! I made these for my bunco group tonite I had no issue with them falling apart but had they not cooled I could tell they would have. 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.
Baked Mac & Cheese Cups To Go!
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.
Homemade Mac and Cheese Bites - Chef in Training
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. 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. So maybe forget what I said about portion control!
Grease a muffin tin very well, making sure to grease the sides.
Set aside. Preheat oven to F. Bring a salted pot of water to a boil, and then cook the pasta until al dente. Cook over low heat, stirring continuously, until cheese melts. Portion into the muffin tins and press each down. Bake 20 minutes on the middle rack.
So that the cups set up without falling apart, let them cool at least 15 minutes before going around each with a knife and then popping out of the muffin tins. View Nutrition Facts. Keto Cookies.

Katie is fixing now! I can totally picture this at a kids party or even a birthday party with lots of young cousins and relatives, LOL! The kids will just chase around the house and try to sneak more and more of these into their mouths!
