Mac & Chz muffins
Siobhan Berry, owner of, shares a recipe for Mac & Chz Muffins. These Macaroni and Cheese Muffins are a delicious finger food for your baby to enjoy or a great addition to a child's lunch box.

2 1/2 cups of dried macaroni
1 small head of cauliflower
1 1/2 cups of milk
3 cups of grated cheddar cheese
3 tbsp butter
3 tbsp flour

Roughly chop the cauliflower into small pieces, to resemble the macaroni. 

Boil a large pot of water, add the macaroni and the cauliflower, and simmer for 6-8 minutes, until the macaroni is cooked to your liking. 

Strain off and allow to cool slightly while you prepare the cheese sauce. 

In a small saucepan, melt the butter. Stir in the flour until it forms a paste.

Gradually whisk in the milk, ensuring you are not left with any lumps of flour. 

Bring the mixture to the boil, remove from the heat and stir in 2 cups of the cheese.

Stir the sauce into the macaroni and cauliflower mix.

Preheat your oven to 190 degrees. 

Place the mix into muffin/cupcake tins and scatter the remaining cheese over the top. 

Bake for 20 minutes, remove from the oven, and allow to cool before removing from the cases.
