Mac & Cheese in a Mug Is the Most Delicious Microwave Meal!

Print Recipe

I've heard of mug cakes, but Mac & Cheese In a Mug?! This is a new one, but a delicious one. Forget boxed macaroni and cheese, whip it up yourself, from scratch, in the microwave!

You'll feel good eating this using real cheese rather than the powdered stuff, and it's ready just as fast (if not faster). Feel free to add veggies like broccoli or cut up carrots if you're feeling extra adventurous!
