Slender Portion Spinach Mac and Cheese Muffins
Here is a great recipe for a healthier version of Mac and Cheese. Not only are the ingredients better for you, but making them this way also helps you not over eat on this delicious dish!
4 cups of cooked whole wheat/high fiber macaroni
1 Tablespoon of butter
1 Tablespoon of flour
1 cup of milk (skim)
1 clove of garlic (minced)
3 ounces of shredded cheddar cheese (sharp)
3 ounces of shredded Gruyere cheese
1 egg white
1 cup of fresh spinach (cooked)
Salt & pepper
First, pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees. Then, lightly mist a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray, now set aside. Next take a small sauce pot and melt the butter over a med heat, add your flour, mix it into the butter until it is thick. Now stir in the garlic and milk; bring the mixture to just under a boil. Add your cheese and whisk it all together until thoroughly combined into a sauce. Remove cheese sauce from the heat and mix in both the egg white and egg until combined. Take a large bowl, combine the spinach, pasta, salt and pepper, and cheese sauce. Mix them together. Spoon the mixture into the muffin tin cups. Bake them for 10-15 minutes or until the tops slightly brown. Let them cool for about 5 minutes before taking them out of the muffin tin.
