This is a low cleanup, super easy, but still healthy and simple mac n cheese recipe for students, room sharers, and road warriors who used up their whole per diem on alcohol.
This recipe is perfect for anyone without access to a full kitchen, or maybe just anyone who’s feeling lazy but not too short on time. To be honest, microwave mac & cheese takes just as long as stovetop mac & cheese, but the benefit is: you don’t have to wash anything but a mug, and that’s worth a recipe in itself.
Dorm room microwave mug mac & cheese recipe
- 1/2 cup small macaroni
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1/2 cup shredded cheese
In a very large microwaveable mug, combine the macaroni, water, and salt. Stir to combine then place on a microwave safe plate.
Microwave in two minutes intervals, stirring in between, about 10 minutes total, until all the water is absorbed and the macaroni is tender.
Stir in the milk and cheese and microwave for 30 seconds, or until cheese is melted. Enjoy immediately.
