  • 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.
