Mac and Cheese Bites

My Mac and Cheese Bites are super simple to make and are a proven crowd favorite. Perch a fun plastic spider on top of these bites as a garnish and they're perfect to serve at your Halloween party!

This recipe is a larger one as it's meant for a crowd, but you can cut it down in half to serve at a smaller gathering.


1 pound elbow macaroni

1 stick of butter

3 tablespoons Frank's Hot Sauce

2 large eggs

3 12 ounce cans of evaporated milk

20 ounces grated extra sharp cheddar cheese

8 ounce block of Monterey Jack cheese with jalepeno peppers, grated

salt and pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 350. Boil the pasta until it is slightly under done. Drain and return to pot. Add butter, hot sauce, salt and pepper. Mix well and set aside.

In a bowl, beat eggs slightly, combine with evaporated milk and set aside. In a second bowl, grate cheeses, combine and set aside.

Prepare muffin tins by spraying with cooking spray. Stir of grated cheese to cooled pasta. Mix well.

Fill each muffin mold with cup of pasta mix. Carefully pour enough milk/egg mix into muffin tins placed on cookie sheets. Place in hot oven and bake for 45 minutes or until muffins have an evenly brown crust.

Remove pans from oven and allow cooling for 20 minutes

Perfect Pairing:

These Mac and Cheese Bites are even tastier when served with the fresh and vibrant Willunga 2011 Chardonnay.
