Veggie mac and cheese muffins have 3 vegetables and 3 kinds of cheese, plus a crunchy topping, and are a great way to get kids to eat their vegetables!
Today I’m bringing back a recipe I posted on this blog before I’d told anyone I had a blog. It was my hidden little part of the Internet and I was just trying to figure out all the ins and outs of websites and blogging before I let the world in on my secret.
It was also before I knew anything about how to take pictures of food. I’m still learning and have a long way to go, but I don’t shudder at the majority of my photography anymore, so that’s progress.
And so when I made a batch of these veggie mac and cheese muffins recently, I knew I needed to redo the photos and republish this recipe. Cause it’s a really good one and deserves to come out of hiding!
J, my 3-year-old, has been begging me for mac and cheese recently. He’s a bit crazed. And while I love to experiment and do things like my kale and butternut squash mac and cheese, these individual muffins are what he knows best.
He loves ALL the cheesy goodness — there are THREE kinds of cheese in these muffins — and I love ALL the veggie goodness — there are THREE kinds of vegetables, too!
That’s a winner in my book! And the kiddos gobble them down. J had 3 that night and M, my 5-year-old, chowed down on two of these.
Can’t blame them – look at that cheesy, golden brown deliciousness!
