  1. Form cold macaroni and cheese into balls, about the size of a ping pong ball.

  2. Coat a baking sheet with olive oil. 

  3. Beat the eggs.

  4. Set out a bowl of flour, a bowl with the beaten eggs in it, and a bowl of bread crumbs. 

  5. Coat each mac and cheese ball in flour, dip into the eggs, and then cover in bread crumbs.

  6. Place coated macaroni and cheese bites on the baking sheet.

  7. Bake for 10 minutes at 425 degrees F.

Recipe Notes

It's best to use leftover macaroni and cheese that is as cold as possible (but not frozen). Make sure it has been in the fridge for a minimum of 12 hours to get the best results.
