Mac n Cheese Bites Recipe 

Firstly I would recommend making your mac and cheese ahead and keeping it in the fridge for a few hours or overnight. This is why leftovers are so good for mac & cheese balls.


To make the balls of macaroni, I use a cookie scoop, but you could also use a spoon if you don't have one. Then squeeze the mixture together a bit into a ball shape.

Next prepare two bowls: One with beaten egg and the other with breadcrumbs, parmesan and seasoning. I like to use panko breadcrumbs as they crisp up nicely, but any breadcrumbs will do.

To season, I sprinkle in a little garlic salt, pepper and Italian seasoning - but you could also add in other herbs or spices such as paprika or cayenne, depending on your taste.

Once you have your breaded mac and cheese bites, it's time to fry them. Heat some oil in a skillet and pop in the balls - don't crowd the pan, you may need to do them in batches.

These fried mac and cheese bites are best served when still warm, although my daughter happily eats them cold in her lunch box.
