Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook Simply Macaroni & Cheese as directed on package.
  2. After cooked, place the macaroni & cheese in a large bowl (more deep than wide) and mix the green onions. Set aside to cool for about an hour. This will allow the macaroni and cheese to firm up and stick together. May have to let sit longer if not sticking together. (also great when using left over Mac & cheese!).
  3. Whisk egg until well blended. This will be used to dip your mac & cheese "balls" into so the flour mixture will stick to it for a batter.
  4. Take the flour and add the steak seasoning to it. Mix well.
  5. Use an ice cream scoop or round table spoon to form rounded chunks of mac & cheese.
  6. Gently dip the mac & cheese balls into the egg batter and then roll in the flour. Place into frying oil and fry until slightly golden brown. (approximately 1 minute on medium heat - - be sure to turn on all sides).
  7. Repeat the process until you have all fried up!
  8. Makes about 12.
  9. Enjoy!
