Let me start by saying these were amazing. If i made them again I would freeze them rather than refrigerating and I’d probably deep fry instead of shallow frying. Here’s what you need
1 Box Velveeta Mac and Cheese
1 (big) link hot Italian Sausage
panko bread crumbs
2 eggs+ a little milk
1/2 tablespoon paprika
duck fat (or any other type of animal fat…or vegetable oil if you’re lame)
Step 1: Make the Mac and Cheese
Follow the instructions on the box dummy.
Step 2: Cut up and cook the sausage
I cooked mine in butter.
Step 3: Combine Sausage with mac and cheese
Step 4: Stir it all up and add in 1/2 tablespoon paprika
The paprika adds a really nice smoky flavor. I know it looks tempting to eat but be patient!
Step 5: Refrigerate
Spread the mixture out in a 9×9 pan, cover and refrigerate for a few hours until it’s cold.
note: I would probably freeze them next time so it sticks together better.
Step 6: Egg wash, Coat with bread crumbs.
Put eggs and milk into one bowl. Put Panko Bread Crumbs into another. Cut the mac and cheese into squares and put into egg mixture followed by bread crumbs.. I found the squares much easier than rolling the mac and cheese into balls.
Step 7: Fry in Duck Fat
Use as much as you want. I shallow fried them but will deep fry next time. Fry until they’re a delicious golden Brown. Consume and love.
