Have you ever made these? 

Next Day Mac and Cheese "Toast"    :smileytongue:
Ingredients
Leftover baked macaroni and cheese, refrigerated for at least overnight
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon cayenne
1 egg beaten with 2 ounces water
1 cup panko bread crumbs
Oil for deep frying, preheated to 375 degrees
 

Cut refrigerated macaroni and cheese into slices or bite size pieces.

Season the flour with salt, pepper and cayenne. Dredge each piece through the flour and gently tap off excess. Dip in the egg wash and then coat with the bread crumbs. Allow them to rest for 5 minutes so the crust can set.

Very carefully drop into the oil and fry until golden brown. Remove to a baking sheet fitted with a rack and rest for 2 minutes before serving.   :smileyhappy:

I've seen this before at the bar/restaurant that we frequent. They call it mac n' cheese bites. I have never had them but they do sound tasty, especially if there were broccoli in that mac n' cheese.

That would be a great thing to do with any ole Mac n'Cheese, just add broccoli or whatever to it then proceed.  :smileytongue:  Great idea, Jeannie!  :smileyhappy:
