Recently I was looking for a fun appetizer my kids would love! After not seeing exactly what I was looking for I decided to make my own. What I came up with was too good not to share – Oh So Good Mini Mac & Cheese Pies!
To make the crust mix: 1 sleeve Ritz crackers, 1 cup shredded white cheddar cheese, and 4 TAB salted butter. I use a blender for a quick & easy crust, but you can crush & mix together if you prefer. Note: You can make this with regular yellow cheddar, but the white is wonderful =-)
Press the crust mixture into the bottom and up partially up the sides of a greased (Pam spray works great) muffin pan. Don’t make the crust too thick – trust me these will pop right out easily! It should fill 10-12 muffins tins depending on how thick your crust is.
Now make your Mac & Cheese Filling by mixing together in a saucepan over medium heat:
- 8 oz. cooked elbow macaroni (that is about 4-5 cups cooked)
- 2 eggs, beaten,
- 1/3 cup sour cream (I love Daisy!)
- 1 teas ground mustard
- pinch of nutmeg
- dash of salt
- dash of pepper
- 1 cup shredded white cheddar cheese
These are seriously that simple and oh so delicious! Adults and kids alike will be asking for more of these beauties! Makes a wonderful appetizer or simple lunch. Leftover reheat easily in the microwave while remaining their shape and texture! Enjoy!
