Ingredients

The Whole Batch of Mac & Cheese Recipe
75g All Purpose Flour
100g Panko Bread Crumbs
2 Large Eggs
30g Egg Whites

Preparation

1. Make your batch of Mac & Cheese. Let cool until it is not too hot to be handled in your hands. With your hands, form mac & cheese into 18 balls. Put them on a plate.
2. Next, add your all purpose flour to one shallow dish and panko bread crumbs to another shallow dish. I used Pyrex rectangle Tupperware containers. Then add 1 large egg and egg whites to a bowl and whisk until combined.
3. Now it’s time to coat these. I designated my left hand as dry and right as wet. Line your dishes in the order of all-purpose flour, eggs, panko bread crumbs. Take a mac & cheese ball, dip it into the flour covering all sides. Then dip it into the egg mixture covering it like you did in the flour. Then dip in the panko doing the same process. Repeat this process for all 18 mac & cheese balls.
4. I had to do this in 2 batches because my air fryer could hold 9 balls each time. So spray your air fryer tray with non-stick cooking spray and add your mac & cheese balls. Spray the tops with your cooking spray and then cook at 360 degrees F for 8 minutes total. Flip after 4 minutes. Once done, repeat with the next batch and enjoy!
