Erin Barnhart with Panera Bread shares a recipe for broccoli cheddar Mac & Cheese cups.


·1 tsp vegetable oil

·2 flour tortillas

·16 oz. Panera® Broccoli Cheddar Mac & Cheese

·1 cup Monterey Jack cheese, shredded


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Grease the bottom of a 12-cup muffin pan with vegetable oil.

  2. Place 1 tortilla round into each of the muffin cups. Gently press down so that they fit snugly into the bottom of each cup and halfway up the sides.

  3. In a small bowl, combine Broccoli Cheddar Mac & Cheese with ½ cup of shredded cheese.

  4. Carefully spoon the mixture into each cup until filled to top of tortilla.

  5. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top and bake for 20-25 minutes or until bottoms of the tortillas are golden brown.

  6. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before removing the Mac & Cheese Cups from the pan. Serve warm.

Or, Try This

  1. To cut the tortillas into 3-inch rounds, you can use a round cookie cutter or find a small bowl, glass, or mug that has a 3-inch diameter and trace the shape on the tortilla with a paring knife. Muffin pans vary slightly, so cut one round first to check whether it comes about halfway up the cup.

  2. This recipe is also great with shredded Pepper Jack cheese, for a little spicy kick.
