Mac Cheese, Mac N Cheese, Baked Mac, Mac And Cheese, Finger Food
Mini Mac and Cheese finger food... Mac 'n Cheese in appetizer form. How brilliant (and dangerous!).
Mini muffin Mac n cheese. Anything big made small is ultrafun for cocktail parties, and these quick, one-bite mac and cheeses are the ultimate example. Cooked in mini muffin pans, the mini macs can be assembled early and baked just as guests arrive.
I love the frozen Mac n cheese bites that get baked in the oven. Their so easy, and cheesy, but I wanted to make some from scratch so I thought I would try this. Unfortunately, these weren't as good as I'd hoped. If I make them again I'll need to figure out how to make them creamier. Three Cheese Mini Mac and Cheese
