Ingredients:
3 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon oil
1 piece small red onion, chopped
1 tablespoon garlic, minced

  1. Saute

    In a pan over medium heat, melt the butter and oil together. Saute the onion and garlic for about 5 minutes and season with salt and pepper.

  2. Boil

    Boil the pasta while occasionally stirring until the pasta is half-cooked and most of the broth has been absorbed about 5 – 6 minutes. Add the ANGEL KREMQUESO and continue to cook for another 5 -6 minutes until the pasta is al dente. Let cool

  3. Cool and shape

    With an ice cream scoop or spoons, portion the cooled mac and cheese into rounded mounds and freeze until firm.

  4. Coat

    Once firm, dredge the mac and cheese balls in flour, egg, and breadcrumbs.

  5. Wrap bacon

    Wrap the dredged balls in bacon slices and secure them into place with toothpicks.

  6. Fry

    Deep fry in oil over medium-high heat until balls are golden brown and bacon is crispy.
