I discovered it was national mac and cheese day today so I thought why not play along! 😉 Mac & cheese is so good but usually pretty high on points, however with lightening up this recipe I was able to keep these delicious creamy cheesy macaroni cups at only 4 PP or SP each! If whole wheat pasta is a 0PP food for you then you can use it and lower the points on them.

Cheesy bacon mac & cheese cups

By: Drizzle
Servings: 12
Prep: 20 minutes
Cook: 20 minutes
Total: 40 minutes
4PP, 4SP, 3 points plus


  • 2 cups macaroni pasta, measured dry, so about 4 cups cooked I use a high fiber pasta that keeps points down a little.
  • 4 slices cooked low point bacon, I use Oscar Mayer center cut
  • 1 egg
  • 4 oz softened light cream cheese
  • 100 g plain yogurt
  • 1/3 cup milk, I used 1%
  • 2/3 cup light mozzarella shredded cheese
  • 2 Tbsp light ranch dressing
  • 1 Tbsp panko crumbs


  • Cook your pasta according to package and set aside. Also cook your bacon strips and crumble.
  • Preheat oven to 350F, spray a 12 muffin pan generously with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl beat your egg. Add in cream cheese, yogurt,milk, ranch dressing and shredded cheese (leave about 1-2 Tbsp of cheese aside for topping)
  • Stir in your cooked pasta and add 2/3 of your crumbled bacon. Mix well and spoon into your 12 muffin cups. You will want to stuff as much as you can in to each cup.
  • Top with your panko crumbs, remaining cheese and bacon.
  • Bake in the oven for 20 minutes. Let cool 5-10 minutes. Using a knife carefully slide around the muffins to pull them out. Makes 12 muffins at 4 PP or SP each. Store in the fridge in a sealed container.

  1. Do you think you can make these ahead like the night before and then pull them out and cook them the next morning for lunch? How do yiu feel about tin foil wrappers?

    1. Hi Vivian, I have never used tin foil wrappers, I am thinking these should work out okay to make the night before and cook the next day, my concern would be the pasta and if it will harden.. sometimes there is only one way to find out 😉 Let me know if you try it..
