As much as I love microwave mug recipes, I noticed that savory mug recipes are overwhelmingly uncommon. So I was going through the internet to get inspiration, and I was excited to find quite a few recipes of mac and cheese in mug.

Once you make mac and cheese this way in a microwave, I’m sure you won’t turn back. There is a high chance that you change the way you make your favourite mac and cheese forever. I mean its so easy, you don’t have to cook the macaroni separate. Just do everything in a mug and the microwave oven does all the magic. Plus you get instant gratification and you get to enjoy it in the comfort of your PJs. 😉 .
