Lately I’ve been wanting to make macaroni and cheese but every time I think about the effort, I get really lazy. Then I came across a macaroni and cheese recipe made in a mug. You know how I love mug recipes…
Suddenly, it no longer seemed so daunting. Five minutes. No stove required. Even I could handle this.
It’s not actually anything particularly new. I remember during my college days people would make pasta in the microwave. But I’d forgotten about it, and I’d never actually done macaroni and cheese in the microwave before, or all made into a mug, so it was still fun. And so easy.
You can find the full recipe here. I followed the recipe as is, though my noodles didn’t have to cook as long. Mine were done at at 3 minutes 30 seconds. Also next time I will try adding less milk because mine was a little more liquidy than I would have liked after adding the milk and cheese. I would also recommend using a giant mug mainly because the water does overflow when cooking the noodles in the microwave and the bigger the mug, the less of an overflow.
This was fun and easy and perfect for a small serving. I will play around with the recipe some more to see if I can get something more like the stove top ones I’ve been making.
