Mac N Cheese Cupcakes

Yet another amazing creation by my Mother. She also made these for the Halloween costume party, but they where so good they deserved there own post.

Mac N Cheese Cupcakes

1/2 pound cooked elbow macaroni
1 1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter
1/4 cup fresh grated parmesan reggiano
2 tablespoons flour
4 oz. cheddar cheese shredded (or 1cup packed)
4 oz. american cheese slices chopped
1 large egg yolk
1/2 teaspoon paprika

Pre-heat oven at 425 degrees.
Spray mini muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray. Sprinkle parmesan reggiano on mini muffin pan and tap out excess. In a large pot melt butter and whisk in flour over medium heat, about 2 minutes. Whisk in milk and cook until it boils, about 5 minutes. Add cheeses and whisk until melted. Turn off heat and whisk in egg yolk and paprika. Fold in macaroni. Spoon mac n cheese into the mini muffin pan and pack in gently. Sprinkle remaining parmesan reggiano on top. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden and sizzling. Let cool for 5 minutes in the mini muffin pan to set. Lift out of mini muffin pan and serve!
