Fried Mac & Cheese

Not sure how to cook with your hot sauce? 

Ingredients:

  • 6 c Cooked mac & cheese, chilled
  • 2 oz Bravado Spice Serrano & Basil Hot Sauce (can also be made with Crimson Hot Sauce)
  • 1/3 c Ranch Dressing
  • 2 c All purpose flour
  • 4 Eggs, beaten 
  • 2 c Bread crumbs
  • 1 qt Vegetable oil
  • 1/4 c Chopped parsley

STEPS:

1.  Scoop out about a 1/3 cup ball of chilled mac & cheese. An ice cream scoop will do the job well. Form into a tight ball.

2. Roll the mac & cheese ball in the flour shake off the excess, and then repeat with the egg wash, and then the bread crumbs.

3. Pour the oil into a pot and heat up to 350° F.

4.  Using a slotted spoon or tongs, place the mac & cheese balls into the hot oil to fry, turning occasionally until they are golden brown all over. Then remove from the oil and drain on paper towels.

5. In a small bowl, mix the ranch dressing and Bravado Spice Serrano & Basil Hot Sauce until well blended. This will be your dipping sauce.

6. Gently top the warm balls with a bit more Bravado Spice Serrano & Basil Hot Sauce and serve.
