Mac and Cheese Toast

0 remarks
Leftover mac and cheese?  Fry it up!  I have wanted to make this since I first saw the Good Eats episode air back in 2002.  Well, here we are in 2013 and I finally got around to it.  Let me tell you, I should have tried it sooner and I am tempted to make some mac and cheese just to cube it up and fry it the next day.

Leftover baked macaroni and cheese, refrigerated for at least overnight
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 egg beaten with 2 ounces water
1 cup panko bread crumbs
Oil for deep frying, preheated to 375 degrees

Cut refrigerated macaroni and cheese into bite size pieces, about 1.5 inches. Season the flour with salt and pepper. Dredge each piece through the flour and tap off excess. Dip in the egg mixture and then coat with the panko bread crumbs. Rest the cubes for 5 minutes so the crust can set. Carefully drop into the oil and fry until golden brown, 3-4 minutes. Remove to a cooling rack and rest for 2 minutes before serving.
