Easy Mac and Cheese Balls

This post about easy mac and cheese balls is sponsored, but all opinions expressed for IMODIUM®, PEPCID® and LACTAID® are all my own.

If you’re like me, then you probably have a lot of leftovers. One of my favorite things to do with leftovers is to reuse them into appetizers or other meals I know my family will enjoy.

Enter: Mac and Cheese Balls!

During our Thanksgiving meal, we have mac and cheese as one of our side dishes. You can’t deny the cheesy, creamy, delicious and comforting taste of mac and cheese on a cold evening. It’s amazing!

Granted, we have some leftovers but instead of just reheating them I decided to create appetizers for our next meal.

Easy Mac and Cheese Balls

The best part about these easy Mac and Cheese balls is that they really are easy! You don’t even need to cook anything, really because that was already done for you– hence leftovers.

If you had your macaroni and cheese in the fridge, then they will be nice and cold and ready to shape.

You’ll want to grab about 2 tablespoons of cold mac and cheese for each ball. If you make your mac and cheese as creamy and cheesy as I do, then these will be pretty stuck together already– perfect.

Shape the mac and cheese into balls and then you’ll want to dip them into flour and then into an egg wash. After that, place them into breadcrumbs. Once you’ve rolled and breaded all of the mac and cheese balls, you’re ready for frying.

Each mac and cheese ball should take about 2 minutes to be golden, or longer if you desire. Once they’re cooked, simply place them on paper towel to dry the excess oil. What I like to do is fish them out of the oil and place them on a cooling rack.

You can serve these mac and cheese balls as an appetizer or as part of your main course. I love dipping these in marinara sauce or even in ranch dressing– it’s so good.

You’ll be amazed at how much your family will love these.

Fast Relief with Imodium

One thing to keep in mind is that if you generally get gas, bloating or cramps from eating fried foods, then you’ll want to try IMODIUM® for fast relief. It works quickly to help you combat the symptoms of stomach pains.


I generally don’t get an upset stomach from eating fried foods, but I know that IMODIUM® would be able to quickly relieve my symptoms if needed. You can purchase these are your local Walmart while you’re shopping for other ingredients for this recipe.
