Easy And Delicious Recipe: Buffalo Mac And Cheese Muffins

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.
