My best friend is having Super Bowl party and asked me to make something yummy! I never made these before, but I figured it couldn’t be that difficult, right?

You will need:

  • 6 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 family size box of macaroni and cheese (I used Kraft)
  • seasoned panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 package shredded mexican cheese
  • flour
  • eggs

Start cooking the macaroni according to the box directions.

The next morning, take the mac and cheese out of the fridge. Using an ice cream scooper, form large golf ball sized balls. Then place back in the fridge.

Next you will make three bowls: one with flour, one with two eggs and one with panko breadcrumbs.

Dip each ball into the flour first. Then into the egg, followed by the breadcrumbs. Place onto a baking sheet and place in the oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
