I was recently invited to a summer barbecue and the host told me to bring a fun, savory dish. I thought to myself, what is one thing everybody loves? Macaroni and Cheese was the answer! I remember watching a Food Network chef make Macaroni and Cheese in cupcake form and decided that was what I was going to do. I knew the kids and adults would enjoy this fun take on Macaroni and Cheese. I had also been dying to use the Heluva Good!® Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese that I had got on sale at Big Y so this recipe was meant to be.
I used real cheese in these cupcakes, no boxed mac n cheese allowed! The Heluva Good! Extra Sharp Cheddar cheese is perfect for Macaroni and Cheese because of its tangy flavor and sharp taste. One thing that I refuse to do is make Macaroni and Cheese without cheddar cheese, it just makes the taste difference.
Heluva Good! Cheese has the best cheese, and they have various cheese flavors including Colby Jack and Jalapeño Jack. The Jalapeño Jack is another favorite of mine for those times when I need a little spice, it is simply Monterey Jack Cheese with Jalapeño Peppers. I love to shred some into my breakfast tortilla wraps, so good! Give Heluva Good! Cheese a try if you haven’t. I find that their cheese is perfect for any occasion and provides plenty of recipe possibilities for quick snacks or tasty bites for entertaining. Once you do, you will realize why it has that awesome name.
These individual sized portions of creamy, cheesy macaroni are the perfect solution to bring to a party and wow your guests. I ate one of them with a side salad and grilled chicken, it was amazing. They would also make a great side dish to beef, pork or just by themselves for non meat eaters. There is even broccoli and tomatoes in them so you can feel good about getting in some veggies and the kids will happily eat that broccoli. I received a lot of compliments about how pretty they looked and how they tasted amazing. I knew this recipe will be one for the books and certainly one that I would use for summertime eating and parties!
These Macaroni and Cheese Cupcakes are also a great way to recreate a kid-friendly meal into an easily transportable snack option. What is fantastic is that they’re nice and easy to put together, and would make a great inclusion to a child’s lunchbox as well. Try making these with the kids for a fun bonding experience.
