I think it so clever to bake mac & cheese in a muffin tin! I made 18 larger bites by using a regular size tin. I omitted the Swiss cheese and used 3 cups of cheddar cheese for the recipe. Originally I made this for the kids but I ended up liking it also.

2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs, divided
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
1-3/4 cups 2% mi
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese
3/4 cup biscuit/baking mix
2 large eggs, lightly beaten

Preheat oven to 425°. Cook macaroni according to package directions; drain.

Meanwhile, sprinkle 1/4 cup bread crumbs into 36 greased mini-muffin cups. In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in flour and seasonings until smooth; gradually whisk in milk. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; cook and stir 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in 1 cup cheddar cheese and Swiss cheese until melted.

Remove from heat; stir in biscuit mix, eggs and 1/2 cup bread crumbs. Add macaroni; toss to coat. Spoon about 2 tablespoons macaroni mixture into prepared mini-muffin cups; sprinkle with remaining cheddar cheese and bread crumbs.

Bake 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool in pans 5 minutes before serving. Yield: 3 dozen.
