Angie’s Baked Mac & Cheese Balls

Posted By Angie On June 6, 2013 @ 5:33 pm In Pasta,Recipes | 2 Comments

There’s a small family owned restaurant near my house called Philly’s [3]. I am addicted to their mac & cheese bites and needed to find a way to make them at home because Philly’s isn’t open 27/4. I also try to bake instead of fry and these mac & cheese balls are perfect. I suppose they are supposed to be for an appetizer or side dish, but frankly nothing else gets eaten when these are made.

Do you know how next day mac & cheese is clumpy & thicker than when it’s fresh? That’s what you want. So, I make 2 batches of mac & cheese and the next day or day after is when I use the left overs to make these balls.
