Fried Mac & Cheese Balls (using leftover macaroni & cheese)
This is my favorite way to use up leftover macaroni & cheese. These Fried Mac & Cheese Balls are undeniably delicious & super easy!
Today I want to share with you my favorite way to use up leftover macaroni & cheese. I figured it was a good time since I’ve recently shared my favorite recipe for macaroni & cheese. Obviously, reheating in the microwave or oven is good – but I’m telling you, when you take that cheesy goodness and deep fry it…. Oh, baby. The crisp outside coating & the almost molten mac and cheese in the center. They are so freaking good. I mean – we just deep fried cheese so yeah, of course it’s gonna be good. 😉
These Fried Mac & Cheese Balls are one my teenage daughter’s favorite thing. She’d be happy if I always kept a pan of cold mac & cheese in the fridge so she could whip up one anytime she got the hankering.
They’re simple as can be & you can make up just one or a whole mess of them in no time at all.
Just roll cold leftover macaroni & cheese into balls…
Then dredge in a beaten egg & panko bread crumbs…
Then fry in hot oil until golden brown.
Let cool for a couple minutes & then dig in. YUM!!
