Who doesn’t love some Mac and Cheese? Even more so when it is homemade Mac and Cheese. Well now we have decided to make mac and cheese a little more portable. See my son completely loves mac and cheese and once I started making these, he asks from them every week.

-Update- Just this week I started playing around with the recipe and I have added chopped pieces of bacon into the mac and cheese balls and OMG they are even better than before. So we will do an updated recipe with this soon.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups macaroni and cheese, homemade(Is always better) or store-bought
  • 2 cups vegetable oil, or more, as needed
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups Panko
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

Instructions:

  1. Place macaroni and cheese into the refrigerator until firm, about 3-4 hours.
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a large stockpot or Dutch oven over medium high heat.
  3. Using a small cookie scoop, roll macaroni and cheese into 1 1/4-to-1 1/2-inch balls, forming about 12.
  4. Working one at a time, dip balls into eggs, then dredge in Panko, pressing to coat.
  5. Working in batches, add balls to the Dutch oven and cook until evenly golden and crispy, about 3-4 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
  6. Serve immediately, garnished with chives, if desired.
