On Saturday, I hosted another flicker-doodles dinner party. We had lots of good food, and lots of laughs. The menu consisted of deep fried mac and cheese, potato soup, braised short ribs, lettuce salad with homemade ranch dressing, homemade bread, and cheesecake for dessert. Everyone went home with very full bellies!
This little guy kept eyeballing the food and wondering why none of it was coming his way!
I’ll bring you all the new recipes this week. Starting with these little balls of deliciousness!
To be honest, I wasn’t really sure how these would turn out. I was afraid they would fall apart and make a huge mess in my deep fryer, but they turned out fantastic. You’ve got to give them a try! Make up a pan of mac and cheese the night before and let it sit in the fridge overnight.
Cut your mac and cheese into roughly 1 inch square pieces.
Place some flour in one bowl, some beaten eggs in another bowl, and panko bread crumbs in the last bowl. I chose to use Italian seasoned bread crumbs, but you can use unseasoned crumbs and season them however you like. Dip each piece into the flour first, then the egg wash, and finally into the bread crumbs.
Set these aside until they’re all coated.
Stick a few pieces into the fryer. If you don’t have a deep fryer, don’t worry, just heat some oil in a deep stockpot to 350. (I would normally just do that, but I was worried about oil splattering and making a huge mess right before the party. The deep fryer keeps it more contained.)
Fry them until they’re golden brown.
See the two lighter ones, they were the first ones I did and they weren’t quite done. It takes a few minutes to get them good and cooked.
Yum! These turned out so good.
I was really impressed with how easy to make these turned out to be. You’ve got to try them for you next party! People will be amazed with your skills!
