These past few weeks I have been inadvertently experimenting with muffin tins. I guess it started when I had some Hershey kisses I was sick of having around the house, so I melted them with some peanut butter into a mini muffin tin and refrigerated them until they looked like peanut butter cups. Sorry, I ate them all before I got a picture.
So for the Super Bowl, I could not figure out what to make. Too many options, and none of them seemed right for the occasion. Then I settled on a specialty – mac and cheese. But in order to make it easily consumable, I cooked it in… well, yeah. Muffin tins.
I used my regular mac n cheese recipe. Then I scooped it into greased muffin tins, topped with Panko bread crumbs and parmesan.
Make at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes, or until it is lightly browned. Once cooled, scoop out with a butter knife.
And when you bring these to any party, they will be an instant hit. Who doesn’t like mac and cheese? Added bonus: they are vegetarian, just in case you have a veggie at your party that doesn’t eat the pulled pork and pigs in a blanket.
