Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oven to 375 degrees. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add macaroni and cook 8 minutes or as per package directions. Drain and return to pot.

  • Meanwhile, melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add flour and cook 1 minute. Whisk in milk in a thin stream. Whisk in mustard, onion powder, salt, pepper, nutmeg and cayenne. Bring to a simmer; cook 3 minutes, whisking occasionally.

  • Remove from heat and whisk in American cheese and 1 cup of the cheddar cheese. Whisk a little of the cheese sauce into the egg to temper. Whisk egg mixture back into cheese sauce.

  • Stir sauce into macaroni. Coat indents of 16 standard muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray. Divide macaroni among prepared cups. Top each with 1 tbsp of the remaining cheddar cheese. Bake at 375° for 18 minutes until lightly browned. Cool slightly before running a thin spatula around edge and spooning out of pans.
