Make your mac & cheese - make from a box per the directions OR make your own homemade
While cooking your mac & cheese line up three medium sized bowls - one with the eggs, another with four and another with the panko bread crumbs (add salt and pepper to taste: optional)
After mac & cheese is made per direction on box - place in the freezer to congeal for 20 - 30 minutes
Take mac & cheese out of the freezer and make one inch balls with your hands or a cookie scoop. Make sure to press them firmly so they will stay together through the dredging process and frying them.
Dredge each mac & cheese ball - place in eggs, flour and then panko - then place on a baking sheet
Place back into freezer for 20 minutes
Mac & Cheese balls are ready to fry either in oil or your favorite air fryer
Pre-fried Mac & Cheese balls can be kept in the freezer until ready for use
