This recipe, Mac and Cheese Muffins, has been posted on Facebook several times over the last few months and I decided it was time to try it! The flavor is fantastic, but be prepared to put a little effort into this dish. You will be cooking the spinach, macaroni and making the sauce at one time, plus preparing the muffin tin, grating cheese & heating the oven. Was it worth it? Definitely!
I haven't used gruyere cheese in very many recipes. After purchasing a mere 4 ounces for almost $7, I know why! But after tasting this, it was worth every cent! Between working and raising a family, boxed macaroni and cheese was always a staple in our pantry. Now that we empty-nestors, we have the luxury of enjoying more sophisticated tastes. Would I make this often? Probably not, simply because of the cost. However, I will make it whenever I want to serve something special to those I love!
However and whenever you serve this dish, you will definitely be pleased with these great mac & cheese muffins!
