Bring these spicy little Cajun Mac & Cheese Bites to your next big game event and feel like a winner no matter what!  Mac and cheese is always a hit, and this handheld version with chunks of perfectly-seasoned chicken and andouille sausage is super-flavorful and easy to make.  Elbow pasta cooks right in the soup for maximum flavor (and minimum cleanup)!  Stir in some Cheddar cheese and panko, then spoon into mini muffin-pan cups and bake until the tops are golden brown.  Just 5 ingredients and about 30 minutes is all it takes- well played!


  • 4 ounces uncooked elbow macaroni (about 1 cup)
  • 1 can (18.8 ounces) Campbell’s® Chunky® Chicken and Sausage Gumbo
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (about 4 ounces)
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup plain panko


  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 425°F.  While the oven is heating, spray 24 mini muffin-pan cups with cooking spray.

  • Step 2

    Heat the uncooked elbows and soup in a 2-quart saucepan over medium-high heat to a boil.  Reduce the heat to medium.  Cook, uncovered, for 7 minutes or until the elbows are tender and the liquid is absorbed, stirring occasionally.  Remove the saucepan from the heat.  Stir in the cheese, milk and panko.

  • Step 3

    Divide the soup mixture among the mini muffin-pan cups.  Press the mixture down gently with the back of a spoon.

  • Step 4

    Bake for 10 minutes or until the tops are golden brown.  Let cool in the pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes.  Remove the bites from the pan and serve warm.
