One of my most favorite foods in the whole world is really delicious
homemade macaroni & cheese...I love it!
I jumped at the chance to be part of the very first
Crazy Cooking Challenge
hosted by the wonderful Tina @ Mom's Crazy Cooking.
The challenge was to find the ultimate macaroni & cheese recipe on another person's blog. I hopped on over to the incredible
Framed Cooks and decided to feature these adorable
mac & cheese cupcakes!
There are so many fabulous recipes on Framed Cooks!
Check out this great site - you will be glad you did!
I adapted the original recipe found HERE with a few delectable additions.
Buttery homemade bread crumbs to embellish some of these little cakes
and other yummy twists for my family to enjoy.
...rich ooey-gooey creamy cheesy goodness!

Put back in pot and stir in melted butter until coated.
Immediately stir in 1-1/2 c of each cheese until melted.

Pour mixture over macaroni and mix well.
Line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper liners.

Sprinkle on remaining shredded cheeses.
Top with breadcrumbs and bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
Homemade Buttery Breadcrumbs
4 - 5 Slices Bread, made into crumbs

Mix all together in a bowl until incorporated.
If you have any remaining macaroni & cheese, simply
