Homemade Mac and Cheese Bites

½ lb elbow macaroni

2 Tbsp butter

2 Tbsp flour

1½ C milk

2 C shredded sharp Cheddar cheese

2 oz cream cheese

½ tsp salt

¼ tsp pepper

1 egg, beaten

 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray mini muffin tins with cooking spray. Cook pasta according to package directions and set aside.

In a medium-size pan combine butter and flour over medium heat. Whisk until butter is melted and mixture is smooth. Slowly add milk and bring to a simmer. Add 1½ cups of the cheese, cream cheese, salt and pepper. Stir until smooth and creamy. Remove from heat.

In a large mixing bowl, carefully stir pasta, cheese sauce and egg until evenly mixed and pasta is evenly coated.

Spoon mac and cheese into mini muffin tins and top each with a small pinch of remaining cheese. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool 5 minutes before gently removing the bites.
