Deep Fried Macaroni and Cheese Bites

Crazy, I know. But think about it. Macaroni and Cheese is SO good. And fried food? Also good. Combined? Well, awesomeness. In bite sized form. Heck, dip it in ranch dressing if you want, I won’t judge.

These mac & cheese bites are perfect for gameday, as they are put together pretty quickly since you can make half of it in advance. Plus, your guests will find you genius.


I used your basic Kraft Mac & Cheese Blue Box. It had the perfect sized noodle, it’s easy, it’s good, and it worked perfectly in this recipe. If you want to use something else, I recommend using a similar style noodle, and a similar consistency. Too runny, it’ll never set up. Too sticky? Well, that’s okay. No runny mac & cheese!

Give it a shot!
