DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400°F Spray a 12-well muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray.
  • In a sauce pan, melt butter over medium-high heat until foaming. Add flour, mustard, and nutmeg, and whisk vigorously until thick and beige in color. Add milk, Tabasco (if using), and garlic and bring to just below a boil, whisking constantly, until thick.
  • Reduce heat to medium and add cheese, one small handful at a time, whisking until fully melted before adding the next handful. When fully melted, remove from heat.
  • In a heat-safe bowl, beat egg and egg white until combined. Whisking vigorously and constantly, drizzle cheese sauce into egg.
  • Add pasta and spinach to cheese sauce. Add salt and pepper to taste. Divide evenly between muffin cups and bake 10-15 minutes until tops are brown. Let cool 5 minutes before removing from cups.
