Macaroni and cheese is the ultimate comfort food, but of course, anything made small is lots more fun.

  • 1/2 Pound Elbow Macaroni Pasta
  • 1/2 Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 2 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
  • 2 Tablespoons Unbleached Flour
  • 1 Cup Whole Milk
  • 8 Ounces Shredded Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • 2 Ounces Cream Cheese
  • 1 Egg Yolk
  • 1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In large-size pot of salted boiling water, cook macaroni according to package instructions and drain.
  3. In medium-size pot whisk together butter and flour. Slowly whisk in milk and cook on medium-low until mixture thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon.
  4. Reduce heat to low. Add shredded cheddar and cream cheese. Continue to whisk until incorporated and smooth. Mix in egg yolk. Remove from heat.
  5. Stir cooked macaroni into mixture.
  6. Grease bottom and sides of muffin tins. Sprinkle half of the Parmesan around edges to coat completely. Divide macaroni and cheese into each cup and top with remaining Parmesan.
  7. Place in oven 15 minutes. Remove from oven and cool 5 minutes before removing from tins.
