  16. To Make Fried Macaroni & Cheese
  17. Store leftovers in refrigerator overnight. Using a ice cream scoop, scoop out mac and cheese and roll in hand to compact the balls tightly. Place on wax paper lined cookie sheet and place in the freezer until frozen (a few hours) remove from freezer and dip in a beaten egg and roll into Panko crumbs (you can use fine bread crumbs however I found they tend to get darker than Panko) Fry in enough oil to cover the Mac & Cheese ball until golden brown Drain on paper towel ENJOY!!
