Now that I’m back to work, I, all too often, take lunch at my desk while trying to get about twenty others things done during that short amount of time. For lunch I want something tasty and requires very little preparation.  Luckily, these Mac n Cheese Cupcakes are perfect to make ahead and then pop in the microwave for a couple of seconds for a perfect working lunch.  It doesn’t get much simpler than this.

These Mac n Cheese Cupcakes take about fifteen minutes to make over the weekend or the night before thanks to Michelina’s Wheels & Cheese frozen meal.   Michelina’s makes it simple to make any meal, your meal.  Make It Your Michelina’s doesn’t get much simpler than what I’ve done with a normal meal of mac n cheese.  I added some frozen broccoli, bread crumbs and an egg white to create my Mac N Cheese Cupcake.

The finishing touch for these Mac n Cheese Cupcakes were the cheddar cheese that were thrown on top during the last couple minutes of baking.  It added a nice cheesy topping that even Riley was able to get behind.

These little babies will definitely be rotated into my weekly lunch rotation, especially since one cupcake was the perfect portion size.  Plus, since Michelina’s meals are so affordable and this one box made four muffins, I’m cutting costs at a crazy rate.

    Great, fun recipe. Did they stick to the pan? Even when I grease pans, everything always sticks. And I have non stick on top of that!
