Mac n Cheese Bites
This week, I signed up in an event with other cooks and chefs in a group on Google. Our challenge was to use a main ingredient and give it a creative twists. So our special ingredient was Mac n Cheese or Crackle barrel. This is how I came upon this idea of a Mac n Cheese Bites. It's a simple, easy to whip up but delicious and full of flavor!
Here are a few simple ingredients you will need:
- 1 box of Mac N Cheese, cooked as directed and chilled until solidify
- About 1 cup of cooked shredded chicken breast ( I use the rotisserie store bought chicken)
- 1 box of low sodium Stove top chicken flavor stuffing. (crushed finely)
- 1-2 eggs,lightly whisked
- Vegetable oil to fry with
Cook the Mac n cheese as directed to the package then take off the heat and mix in the shredded chicken breast.
Chill the Mac n Cheese so it's solidify. While it's chilling, crush the stove top stuffing into a very fine consistency in a medium bowl. Whisk lightly the egg in a small bowl.
Deep fryer is highly recommended.
Once the temperature reaches 325 degrees it's time to start the frying process.
Roll the Mac n cheese into a ball and dip into the lightly beaten egg then roll it into the crushed stove top stuffing. Deep fry the Mac n cheese ball for about 2 minutes or until golden browned and rotate it. Drain excess oil on a napkin..
