Fried Macaroni and Cheese

Top Review by Mirj2338

A totally new take on mac and cheese, and I'm convinced this may possibly be the BEST version I've had yet. At our house we are always fighting over the hard crunchy bits, and this way ensures that there is enough, more than enough, for everyone! I actually combined everything together, macaroni, eggs and cheese, and fried up little pan-fulls, so everyone had an individual portion. Those of us who like more crust had more crust, those of us who like it more soft and pillowy, well... you get the picture. My only change to the recipe was to add a healthy dose of paprika and some freshly ground black pepper. Troy, where has this recipe been all my life?
