Plus, it’s like instant portion control.

Except that these mac and cheese cups are even more addictive than they are adorable, and you’ll kind of want to eat all of them.

So maybe it’s best to forget what I said about portion control…

These are great if you need an easy party appetizer (hi, Super Bowl Sunday!), and they are just as great to throw into a lunchbox and win the Coolest Mom Award.

Or serve as a quick lunch or dinner, along with some steamed veggies or Homemade Garlicy Kale.

Baked Mac & Cheese Cups To Go

Total Time: 20m
Yield: 7-9
Print This Recipe 4.78/5

Ingredients

  • 4 oz dry elbow macaroni
  • 1/4 cup milk of choice
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast OR Parmesan (such as vegan Parma)
  • 6 oz shredded cheese, such as Daiya vegan
  • optional 1 tbsp buttery spread

Instructions

Grease a muffin tin very well, making sure to grease the sides. Set aside. Preheat oven to 400 F. Bring a salted pot of water to a boil, and then cook the pasta until al dente. Drain completely, then add all other ingredients (including the 1/4 tsp salt) to the pot with the drained pasta. Cook over low heat, stirring continuously, until cheese melts. Portion into the muffin tins and press each down. Bake 20 minutes on the middle rack. So that the cups set up without falling apart, let them cool at least 15 minutes before going around each with a knife and then popping out of the muffin tins.

    Super cute! I’ve been thinking about making these, but my mac n cheese recipe is too saucy, they wouldn’t stay in cup shape. I’m excited to try your recipe! Thanks Katie!

  2. Lindsay says

    Do you recommend keeping these hot if we take with us to a party? Or can I make in advance and have the hostess re-heat them before serving?

  3. Lenia says

    I just made these for the second time. They are great as a to-go lunch to take to uni or work. Even my boyfriend liked them and that says something. Great recipe!

    Hi Katie, these look so delish!! Question – are these the mini muffin tins, or the regular size? The recipe says it makes 7-9, so I’m guessing the mini tin, but the recipe just says muffin tin. Sorry, just want to be sure, for baking time. Thanks!

  5. Stephanie says

    Didn’t use parm or nutritional yeast and added bread crumbs to the tops. These are pretty scrumptious! Was hoping my kids would eat them, but apparently Annie’s is better than homemade ?

  6. Karen Bruning says

    Delicious and easy to make. Perfect for lunchbox or a quick snack grab. I’ve made them 3 times in a month!
