Fried Mac & Cheese

Make no mistake. This recipe should not factor into anyone's New Year's resolutions. Unless you resolved to eat great tasting, bad for you food all year. One of my resolutions this year is to find the perfect homemade macaroni and cheese recipe, equivalent to the mac and cheese served at one of my favorite restaurants, Mike's Tree Farm restaurant near Jacksonville, NC. As soon as I figure it out, I will post it here. In the meantime, here is something I like to do with leftover mac & cheese, only once in a blue moon, since there is not one thing healthy about this recipe. Lucky for us there was a blue moon last week.

First, take your leftover homemade mac and cheese that's been chillin' in the fridge for a day or so until it's nice and solid and slice it into slices about 1/2" thick.

Put some breadcrumbs in one bowl, and some milk in another bowl.

Coat the mac & cheese slices in the milk and then roll them in the breadcrumbs until they are thoroughly coated.

Fry them in a skillet with about 1/8" of oil until golden brown on the outside and warm and gooey on the inside.

Remove to a paper towel lined plate and serve.

I'm not sure when the next blue moon will be but go ahead and try this the next time you have mac & cheese in your fridge and need to boost your family's cholesterol numbers. They will love you for it.
