ingredients

directions

  • Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  • In a large pan of boiling salted water, cook the macaroni until al dente. Drain well, shaking off any excess water.
  • Brush mini muffin tins (48 mini-cups total) with butter. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of the Parmesan.
  • In a large saucepan, melt the 1 1/2 tablespoons of butter. Whisk in the flour and mustard over moderate heat for 2 minutes. Whisk in the milk and cook, constantly whisking, until boiling, about 5 minutes. Add the cheddar and American cheeses and whisk until melted. Mixture will be very thick. Remove from heat, and whisk in the egg yolk and paprika. Fold in the macaroni.
  • Spoon slightly rounded tablespoons of the macaroni into the prepared muffin cups, packing well. Sprinkle the remaining Parmesan on top.
  • Bake for about 10 minutes, until golden and sizzling. Let cool for 5 minutes. Carefully loosen the mini macs, remove from pan to a platter, and serve.
  • These can be prepared through Step 4 and refrigerated overnight.

    This time around I made these just for the 2 of us, as I wanted to do a test run, & believe me it was a great success! These are very nice tasties & just the right size to add to my monthly finger food counters for a couple of groups I host! I included the paprika as it made for an even nicer presentation! A great keeper, for sure! [Made & reviewed in New Kids on the Block]
