Sharp cheddar mac and cheese topped with crunchy crushed up Cheez-Its is a Cheez-Its addict’s dream come true.
Total Time:22 minutes
Yield:2 servings 1x
4 ounces macaroni or other short pasta
3/4 cup evaporated milk
Pinch of salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Dash of garlic powder
Dash of cayenne pepper
4 ounces shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese
1/3 cup Cheez-Its, crushed
Preheat oven to 475 and lightly spray two ramekins with non-stick cooking spray.
Fill a medium sauce pan 2/3 full of water and place over high heat until the water boils. Add a pinch of salt, then add the pasta to the water. Cook for about six minutes. Pasta will be al dente. Drain pasta.
In the meantime, whisk together evaporated milk, egg, and seasonings in a medium mixing bowl. Stir in the cheese. When the pasta is drained, add it to the mixing bowl and stir everything together.
Divide your mac and cheese between your two ramekins. Top with Cheez-Its crumbs. Put your ramekins on a baking sheet, and cook in the oven for about 12 minutes or until bubbly and lightly brown.
Allow your mac and cheese to cool for at least 10 minutes. Grab your ramekin and go to cheese heaven.
To get your Cheez-Its crumbs, simply put the crackers in a small zip top bag, and smash them up. A coarse crumb is awesome.
