Ultimate Comfort Food: Mac & Cheese Doughnuts

This classic American comfort food has gotten most us through the coldest winter days and the most intense cheesy cravings. And while a piping how bowl of mac and cheese is the ultimate salvation on its own, a little twist to this classic is only more giving.

So, here’s a recipe that will help you take your love for this indulgent dish up a notch. I would advise staying away from counting calories for a while though.

What you will need:

2 cups macaroni

2 cups of cheese (cheddar)

1 1/2 cups milk

1/2 butter

1 cup flour

1 tsp salt

1 tsp pepper

3 eggs

Seasoned breadcrumbs

What you need to do:

(For the Mac & Cheese)

  1. Begin by boiling the pasta. Once boiled strain and keep aside.
  2. In a heavy bottom pan, add in the butter and 1/4th of the flour while constantly stirring for 5 mins. Put in the salt, pepper, cheese and milk and mix well. Cook until the consistency is thick.
  3. To this, add the boiled pasta, mix and let it cook for around 2 minutes. Take off the heat and keep aside to cool.

(For the Doughnuts)

  1. Keep the mac and cheese in the fridge for a few hours until cold and sturdy.
  2. Whisk and eggs in a bowl and mix in the cold mac and cheese. Scoop and shape in doughnut moulds to get the desired look.
  3. Mix the flour and seasoned bread crumbs on a plate.
  4. De-mould the doughnuts and coat well with the flour mixture.
  5. Keep in the fridge for around 5 minutes and deep fry until golden brown.
  6. Serve with a dip and salad on the side.

* Make sure the oil is hot enough before you fry the doughnuts.

* Coat the doughnuts extremely well with the four and breadcrumbs. Double coat if necessary.

* If you want, you can add chopped meat in the mac and cheese mixture before you put it in the fridge as well.
