Mac 'n' Cheese Bites

Mac and Cheese Balls are the perfect finger food that is crisp on the outside and creamy on the inside. These delicious homemade balls are very easy to make with leftover pasta. You can enjoy them as a cheesy appetizer, or mix them up with other nibbles and snacks at your next dinner party! 
Ingredients (Makes 20)
2 cups macaroni pasta 
2 tbsp butter
2 tsp flour
1.5 cups milk
2 cups grated cheese 
Salt & pepper, to taste
2 eggs, for egg wash
2 cups breadcrumb
Instructions:
  1. Boil water, add macaroni and cook until al dente.
  2. In the meantime, make the béchamel sauce. Melt butter in a pan and mix 2 tsp flour into it. Add the milk gradually and stir until thick. Add cheese and cook until melted. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Add cooked macaroni and cover. Once fully cooled, form into balls, place on a plate and refrigerate for 2 hours or longer. 
  4. Dip the solid balls in egg wash, then breadcrumbs. Fry in a hot pan of oil until golden brown on both sides. Enjoy!

Don't be put off by the yield, these nibbles freeze very well once crumbed - ready for last minute guests!
