  • prepared mac and cheese, store-bought or homemade, to taste, chilled
  • 2 (8.5-ounce) bags kettle-cooked potato chips, flavor of your choice, crushed
  • 2 eggs
  • 6 cups canola or peanut oil


Step 1 -Using a 1 1/2-inch spoon, scoop out about 2 tablespoons of the macaroni and cheese and shape it into a 2-inch round ball. Make sure to compress the balls lightly so that they do not fall apart, but not so tightly that it ruins the texture.

Step 2 -Pour the crushed chips into a shallow bowl or a plate.

Step 3 -In a separate shallow medium-sized bowl, beat together the eggs until they are smooth.

Step 4 -Dip the mac and cheese balls into the eggs.

Step 5 -Roll the egg-coated balls in the potato chips, making sure to firmly press the chips into the macaroni balls to create the crust for the balls.

Step 6 -Keep repeating the coating process until you have about 12-14 balls fully-coated.

Step 7 -Heat the oil in a 4-quart pot until it reaches 350 degrees F.

Step 9 -Drain the fried balls on paper towels and repeat until all of the mac and cheese balls are fried.

Step 10 -Serve.
