Bacon Wrapped Deep Fried Mac & Cheese Bites_edited

 

I’m not even gonna lie. Bacon Wrapped Deep Fried Mac & Cheese are off the hook. I was in one of those moods the other day when I was having these odd cravings.  It was a toss up. I was craving mac & cheese,  bacon and fried foods. Don’t ask what brought this on but I will say, I’m glad I did.

Have you ever had a craving for a food that you wanted now and not wait an hour to cook it? My stomach was making all types of noises so I didn’t hesitate to make a quick recipe of these delicious Bacon wrapped Deep Fried Mac & Cheese Bites.

The funny thing is, my husband walked into the kitchen and asked what was I cooking? He instantly could smell the bacon as we all know how that aroma just travels through your home when it’s cooking but he looked surprised when I told him what my craving was. -And his response was, “Oh Ok”. We kinda laughed together because we both know how amazing these type of recipes come out.  In my mind, I just knew the kids and him would be all over these yummy appetizers once done.

Heck some of the best recipes out there are made with a little twist or from an odd craving. Don’t you think so?

This recipe is ease peasy to make. In fact, it will take less than 35 minutes to be exact. One bite and your hooked! If your looking for an appetizer that the whole family will love then these babies are a must try.

It all starts with a little cheesy love for your Mac & Cheese.

Geesh, Mac & Cheese has been around for ages. I remember it being one of my favorites meals to have when I was little. My kids the same. It’s just something about the taste of it that makes others crawl back for more.

Cheese, Cheese and more Cheese Please! For my recipe, I used boxed macaroni and melted Velveeta cheese. Nothing to fancy but you could use any cheese flavor you like.  Once the macaroni is tender remove from the heat and drain. Pour your desired cheese amount and stir in well. Because the macaroni is still warm, I placed the bowl inside the refrigerator for 5 minutes to cool down.

Doing so allows the cheese to cool down and the macaroni to form. I started by using an 1/4 measuring cup and scooping the macaroni until the cup was full.

This gives you some wiggle room when pressing the macaroni together to form a circle shaped ball. Next, grab two eggs and breadcrumbs. For this recipe, I used seasoned breadcrumbs but you can use plain or even planko to give them that crispy fried texture. Once you have placed your eggs and breadcrumbs in separate bowls, it’s time to cover these bites up.

Dip in each mac & cheese ball into the egg then breadcrumbs. Once you have your desired amount, set them aside. Take your one pound bacon and start wrapping each piece around your mac & cheese ball. If you find that the bacon doesn’t hold well, you can use wooden toothpicks to help when frying.

When frying, you want your bites to be crispy and golden brown. Over frying them will result in a less desirable taste.
