Mac n Cheese Ramekins

Ramekins are perfect for individual portions of many different dishes and today I am excited to share my mac n cheese ramekin recipe with you.

Man n cheese is down home comfort food and it makes you feel all warm and cozy. These little ramekins are ideal for individual servings of mac n cheese.

I love the whole experience – I hold the ramekin as I scoop some out and I feel the warmth of it since it just came out of the oven. I scoop in and get a large spoonful of cheesy goodness. Along with the cheesy inside there is this crunchy and crumbly topping that might even be the best part of the dish.

Amazing I tell you!!

I need to admit that the photos you see are of 6 ramekins and the recipe is for four. I have a family of five and my brother in law lives with us so four of anything doesn’t work.

But, I figured that most people would look for a recipe of four, so I built the recipe that way.
