My daughter was invited to a birthday party at Ice World in Stockholm, NJ, and a very deep fried version of these were part of the fare. With the Super Bowl approaching, I decided to try to make a healthier version and came up with this!
1Make Mac and Cheese dinner as directed on package. Stir in Cheddar cheese and cream cheese and blend really well.
2Let sit covered in the fridge overnight of for several hours.
3Line a pan that will fit into your freezer with waxed paper. Roll the mac and cheese mixture with your hands into small balls and then flatten (you can keep as little balls, but might be cold in the center later on). Lay on waxed paper and freeze for an hour.
4Beat eggs together in one bowl and mix flour and bread crumbs together in another.
5Dredge patties in egg then flour then fry in oil turning a lot until brown on all sides.
6Serve warm..... but they're awfully good cold too! Can dip in a warm marinara sauce if desired.
