3 Cheese Mini Macs

These cute and creamy mac & cheese bites are a fun appetizer for a party, but I like to bake them in regular muffin tins for a fun and homemade tv dinner (or more like movie dinner in my house).  American cheese is not something I usually buy, although I do love it on diner cheeseburgers and […]
