Gooseberry Patch

Enjoy one of your favorite comfort foods in cheesy, ooey gooey, practically bite-sized, nugget form.

Yield: Makes 4 dozen


  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 1/4 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

  • 1 egg yolk, beaten
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 8-oz. pkg. elbow macaroni, cooked


  1. Lightly grease mini muffin cups. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, tapping out excess. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour; cook for 2 minutes.
  2. Whisk in milk until boiling, about 5 minutes. Add Cheddar and American cheeses; remove from heat and stir until smooth. Whisk in egg yolk and paprika; fold in macaroni until well coated. Spoon rounded tablespoons of mixture into prepared tins; sprinkle with remaining Parmesan.
  3. Bake at 425 degrees until hot and golden, about 10 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes; carefully transfer to a serving plate.
