Clinton Kelly's Mac N Cheese Bites
  • 1 pound Macaroni
  • 2 tablespoon Butter
  • 1 Onion diced
  • 1 Garlic clove minced
  • 1 teaspoon Paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Mustard
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoon Flour
  • 2 Cup Milk
  • 1 pound White Cheddar
  • 2 Cup Breadcrumbs
  • 6 Eggs beaten
  • Vegetable Oil for frying
  • Cook the macaroni according to package directions in salted water.
  • In a large sauce pan, sauté the onions and garlic in the butter over medium heat until soft, about 4 minutes.  Add the paprika and the mustard and season with salt and pepper. Whisk in the 2 tablespoons flour and the milk and stir until starts to thicken slightly, about 4 minutes. Fold in the cheese and add the macaroni. Place in a baking dish and into the fridge to cool and firm up. 
  • Place the remaining flour in a high sided dish, in another dish, add the eggs, and in a third dish place the breadcrumbs.
  • Heat a pot of vegetable oil to 350 degrees.
  • Scoop the cooled mac n cheese with a spoon or ice cream scoop into the flour, then egg, then breadcrumb mixture and into the oil.
  • Do not crowd the pot. Cook in batches. When golden brown and warm through, remove the mac n cheese bites from the oil to a paper towel line plate. Season with additional salt and taste.
