Debbie's Story

I have had these at The Chessecake Factory years ago. I saw a segment on Foodnet work a while back and decided I would give it a try. My kids loved it. They love anything with mac n cheese, plus anything instant success!! They are good alone or dipped in a marinara sauce of choice. Cheescake factory does a marinara mixed with a cream sauce..yummm.

Note..use your favorite mac n cheese recipe. The cheesier the better!! I will post a few links.Even a great way to use left over mac n cheese.


favorite mac n cheese recipe prepare as directed below
bowl all purpose flour seasoned with salt and pepper
egg and milk mixture
bowl of panko bread crumbs..regular bread crumbs can be used but i like the krisp of panko
pot of cooking oil at 350 degrees

Directions Step-By-Step

Bake your favorite Mac n Cheese..the more cheese the better
Allow to cool ..put in the fridge 3-4 hours..i did mine overnight.
Once mac n cheese is really cold form balls..I used an ice cream scoop..then squeezed them really well
Place balls in the frezer for 2 hours
Once oil is hot dredge the balls..flour, egg/milk, then in hot oil for 3-4 min until golden brown.
I would prepare..3-4 at a time then fry
Serve hot as an apietizer or side
