Macaroni buns seem outrageous but are delicious and great for any summer picnic. Macaroni in a bun were a hit with the young and old!
Again, there are many versions of this. Some just use the mac and cheese mixtures and place it into a muffin tin. I used my own bread dough that I rolled out thinly and then scooped a heaping teaspoon of the Mac and Cheese. I also used a wonton wrap with the Mac and Cheese filling. These were lighter and would be awesome for a party, served with Fresh Tomato salsa!
The recipe I used is my favourite Mac and Cheese recipe
I made a roux, added hot milk and whisked until the mixture thickens. I used cheddar cheese and Parmesan cheese.. You can stop here and have a fondue!
The recipe is very much like my Grandmother's, only she would have used cottage cheese for her Baked Macaroni casserole. As a kid, I loved my grandmother refrying slices of the Mac & Cheese the next day with an easy over egg for breakfast!
Mac and Cheese recipe
Using mini muffins that have been sprayed, a 2 inch cutter was used to cut the bread dough that had been rolled out.

Having some dough and Mac and Cheese left over, here is what we had for supper that evening! Along with Pork patties and veggies cooked in my Cast Iron pan on the BBQ.
