What's For Dinner: Individual Macaroni Pies



What's For Dinner: Individual Macaroni Pies

As promised, I wanted to share the Individual Macaroni Pies from Sunday's Family Dinner.
My family is more comfort food type family and 
they love the Individual Macaroni Pies.


Individual MACARONI PIES


Ingredients 


1 1/2 cups crushed Ritz crackers (this is about 35 crackers)
2 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese (10 ounces if purchasing a bag)
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
2 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces
4 1/2 cups cooked elbow macaroni (8 ounces uncooked), drained and kept hot
2 large eggs, beaten
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 teaspoon salt

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease 8 cups of a 12-cup muffin pan.
In a bowl, combine the crackers, 1 cup of the cheddar cheese, and the melted butter. Divide the mixture among the prepared muffin cups and press firmly in the bottom and up the sides of the cups.
In a large bowl, mix the macaroni with ½ cup of the cheddar cheese. In a small bowl, combine the eggs, milk, sour cream, cold butter pieces, and salt. Stir the milk mixture into the macaroni.
Spoon 2 tablespoons of the macaroni mixture into each cracker crust and top with the remaining cheddar cheese. Bake for about 25 minutes, or until the cheese is browned and slightly crispy. Allow the pies to cool slightly before unmolding and serving warm.
