Miniature Jalapeño Macaroni & Cheese

A collection of petite-sized macaroni & cheese appetizer portions are a fun way to serve this classic side dish when parties are in order. Summer produce pairs beautifully with them including fried okra & an array of tomato salads while irresistible miniature corn muffins can’t be beat. Think smoked chicken sliders & barbecue crostini for a hearty accompaniment. In order to achieve the look, prepare Jalapeño Macaroni & Cheese as directed. Omit the large baking dish & instead, portion a generous tablespoon of the cheese pasta into the desired number of miniature gratin-style ramekins. Place on a quarter or half sheet pan & top with some of the cheese. Bake 400 degrees 12 to 14 minutes or until golden brown & bubbly throughout. Garnish with freshly ground black pepper. If a slightly larger portion is desired, 6 shallow gratin dishes may also be substituted. Simply bake a few additional minutes. Learn how to make this popular recipe ahead of time to freeze & hold for you next summer celebration.
