Mac and Cheese Bites
500g elbow noodles
2 cups butter cracker crumbs (Ritz)
3 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded and divided
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
150g herb feta cheese
2 tablespoons cold unsalted butter
2 large eggs
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- Preheat oven to 176°C. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook the pasta according to the box directions until just shy of al dente, about 6 minutes. Drain. Meanwhile, lightly grease several standard muffin tins with cooking spray or butter.
- In a medium bowl, combine the cracker crumbs, 1/2 cup of the shredded cheese, and the melted butter with a fork. Spoon a bit of the mixture into the bottom of each tin and press down with a fork or the bottom of a small glass.
- Once the pasta is cooked and drained, add it to a large mixing bowl with the remaining cheese, feta, and cold butter. Mix well. In a small bowl, combine eggs, milk, and sour cream whisking to combine. Add the liquid mixture to the pasta. Stir in the salt and garlic powder. Mix well.
- Divide the noodle mixture between the prepared muffin tins. Bake until
golden, about 20-25 minutes. Let cool in the tins at least 10-15 minutes before
removing from the pan. Serve immediately.
