Deep-Fried Mac and Cheese or "How I Want To Die"

If I could have one wish just before I kicked the bucket, it would be to have a glass of iced tea and these delicious bites of cheesy deliciousness. Thank you, St. Paula, for sharing your fatty wisdom with us.

Step One: The Lady's Cheesy Mac

* 2 cups cooked elbow macaroni
* 2 cups grated Cheddar
* 3 eggs, beaten
* 1/2 cup sour cream
* 4 tablespoons butter, cut into pieces
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1 cup milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Once you have the macaroni cooked and drained, place in a large bowl and while still hot, add the Cheddar. In a separate bowl, combine the remaining ingredients and add to the macaroni mixture. Pour macaroni mixture into a casserole dish and bake for 30 to 45 minutes. Top with additional cheese, if desired.

Refrigerate overnight.

Step Two: Deep-Fried Mac and Cheese

* Peanut oil, for frying
* 1 recipe "The Lady's Cheesy Mac" prepared, chilled overnight, and cut into 15 bite-sized squares
* Flour, for dredging
* 1 egg, beaten
* Plain bread crumbs, for dredging

Heat 2 inches of oil in a large, heavy Dutch oven to 350 degrees F.

Dredge each Cheesy Mac square in flour, then egg, and then bread crumbs to coat. Fry for about 1 minute on each side until golden brown. Drain on paper towels before serving.

okay, I tried this was disgusting. Although I think if I had tried smaller pieces than what she suggests it would have worked out better. As it was the inside was kind of cold
