ingredients

  • 2 cups cooked macaroni
  • 1 ½ cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 ½ cups breadcrumbs
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons sriracha sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

Optional: fresh parsley for garnish

steps

  • In a large bowl, combine the cooked macaroni, shredded cheddar cheese, grated parmesan cheese, eggs, milk, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and pepper. Mix until well combined.
  • Take a tablespoon-sized portion of the mac and cheese mixture and roll it into a ball. Repeat until all the mixture is used.
  • Place the breadcrumbs in a shallow bowl. Roll each mac and cheese ball in the breadcrumbs, pressing to coat evenly.
  • Heat about 2 inches of vegetable oil to 350°F (175°C) over medium heat in a deep pot or skillet.
  • Fry the mac and cheese bites in batches for about 2-3 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy. Using a slotted spoon, transfer them to a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.
  • Whisk together the mayonnaise, sriracha sauce, and lime juice in a small bowl to make the dipping sauce.
  • Serve the crunchy mac and cheese bites hot, garnished with fresh parsley, along with the spicy sriracha dipping sauce on the side.
