      Fun recipe. I found the flour and bread crumbs over-proportioned compared to the egg wash, which disappeared fast into the sponge-like flour-coated mac and cheese. Using the recommended measurements I made 16 1-inch cubes and ran out of egg wash, but had tons of flour and bread crumbs left over.

      I made this tonight with left over Kraft Deluxe boxed mac and cheese. It turned out great. After I breaded the mac and cheese bites I froze them for about thirty minutes, they kept their breading and shape throughout the frying process and tasted SO GOOD!
