Five Tasty Meals In A Mug

1. Macaroni Cheese in a Mug:

Is there anything more comforting than carbolicious Mac 'n' Cheese? This in mug version is yummy and only takes ten minutes max, from start to finish.

You will need:

  • 1/8 cup Macaroni Pasta*(you can use other pasta shapes)
  • 6fl oz Cold Water
  • 4 Tablespoons Whole Milk (You can use semi-skimmed but I prefer it a bit creamier)
  • ¼ Teaspoon Cornflour*
  • 4 Tablespoons Grated Strong Cheddar Cheese
  • 1/8 Teaspoon English Mustard*
  • Salt and Pepper (for seasoning)

Method:

  • Add the macaroni and water into the mug and microwave for around 3 and a half minutes.
  • Once done check that the pasta is soft. If it's not then stick it back in the microwave for 30 seconds and keep repeating until it's soft to touch.
  • Now, drain off the excess cooking water.
  • Stir in the rest of your ingredients.
  • Finally, microwave it for 30 seconds. The sauce should look smooth and rich. If it's not quite right, try another popping it back in for another five-ten minutes.

  • Pop in the rest of the ingredients and stir thoroughly.
