Easy And Delicious Recipe: Buffalo Mac And Cheese Muffins

Make these for your next party or a big batch on Sundays for an easy way to keep your family full throughout the week.

If you love macaroni and cheese (who doesn’t) you’re going to love these mac and cheese muffins. This recipe combines my three favorite things: pasta, cheese and a little kick. If I had to describe these bites on one word, it would be this: amazing.

Simply combine the ingredients, toss in a muffin tin and bake and presto – you’ve got a satisfying appetizer, delicious side dish to a classic meal, or a snack to tide you over until dinner.

Want to get fancy? Add some shredded chicken or ground sausage (pre-cooked) to jazz it up with additional protein and flavor.
