MacNCheesy Muffin Appetizers

Great appetizer for your holiday list that won't last long especially with kiddos and I mean BIG kiddos too! I'm planning to make some this weekend to take to friends to try out the recipe! I will also add my photo!

Gluten Free Mac N Cheese

1 Box Quinoa pasta macaroni or Jovial brand elbow pasta

Kosher salt

1/8 teaspoon Cayenne pepper (optional)

Ian's Gluten Free Panko Bread Crumbs ( I buy them at Whole Foods)

Melted Butter

Parmesean Cheese

Mix bread crumbs with some melted butter and add the parm cheese.   Press this mixture into a non stick small muffin pan and scoop about a spoon full of MacNCheese on and top with more of the crumb mixture.  Bake on 350 for about 12 to 15 minutes until golden brown.  YUMMMMMM!
