Directions

  • 2 Meanwhile, in 10-inch skillet, cook ground beef over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly cooked. Drain; set aside.

  • 5 Fill each muffin cup with macaroni mixture. Sprinkle bread crumbs and remaining shredded cheese over tops.
  • 6 Cover pan loosely with foil, making sure foil does not touch cheese. Bake 20 minutes.
