mac and cheese

Mini Truffle Parmesan Mac & Cheese Muffins 


Ingredients:
2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni
1 tablespoon butter
1 egg, beaten
1 cup milk
1 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup seasoned dry bread crumbs
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 tsp-1tsp truffle oil

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray. In a small bowl, mix the bread crumbs, olive oil and salt.
Cook the elbows for about 8 minutes; they should still be a little bit firm. Remove from the heat, drain and place in a pan; stir in the butter and egg until pasta is evenly coated. Reserve 1/2 cup of sharp cheddar cheese and stir the remaining cheddar cheese, parmesan, milk and mozzarella cheese and truffle oil into the pasta. Spoon into the prepared muffin tin. Sprinkle the reserved cheese and the bread crumb mixture over the tops. 

Bake for 30 minutes

Serves 12
