Are you ever home alone and hungry? But don’t want to make a whole pot of noodles, because you know you will eat too much. This homemade mac and cheese for one is the perfect solution. Cook up just enough for you using lunch mug recipes.

Be sure to put a plate under your mug when cooking your noodles in the microwave. The water in the mug may overflow, and the plate will catch the water. 

You want to use a large mug for this recipe. I love my Disney castle mug that I got at Disney World a few years ago! It is the perfect size for this recipe. 

If you love this recipe you will want to try our unicorn sandwiches! They are so fun and colorful, and the kids will love them for an afternoon snack.
