Mac and cheese muffins are simple, delicious, and kid friendly. They are a really nice alternative to plain old mac and cheese. I always make them up on the weekend and the kids just love them. Give them a try and let us know what you think.
I like to use bacon bits in the recipe, but this is completely optional, however. Sharp cheddar cheese is really nice, but you can use the cheese of your choice. As always,, salt and pepper according to your liking. The muffin tray can be any size. If you want the mixture a little thicker, a bit more flour can be added. You can use as much or as little garlic as you like. I find, the bread crumbs really add a nice texture to the dish.
