Crunchy Mac and Cheese? Can it be done?? Please help!!!

ms.sarah | Jan 6, 2010 06:09 PM

So, I've gotten it in my head that I am going to make mini mac and cheese bites for tomorrow night's bowl game. Since my Horns are playing (and hopefully winning!), I want these cheesy little buggers to be chock full of Tex-Mex flavor.

Here's the idea---mac and cheese doctored up with garlic, onions, peppers (jalepenos, serranos, or bell--I haven't decided on the spice level), tomatoes, & cumin and baked in mini-muffin tins. They'll be the right size, but I want I them to be crunchy on the outside and creamy spicy on the inside. I've seen the fine living recipe for parmesean crusts, but I don't think that'll fit the flavor profile.

If I can't figure out how to crunchify these things I might have to pull a Paula and wrap 'em in bacon and deep fry the heck out of em.

Please help me avoid that terrible fate.

Please.
