I may never go back to eating Mac N Cheese out of a bowl again!

Mac N Cheese is a family favorite and the combinations are seriously endless! Today, I made a creamy two-cheese sauce for that ultimate in cheesy deliciousness! But I didn't stop there. I decided to roll up all that yumminess in egg wraps and deep fry them! Are you drooling yet?


Mac N Cheese Egg Rolls

Ingredients

1 pound dried elbow pasta

1 tbsp. Olive oil

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup all purpose flour

1 cups whole milk

2 1/2 cups half and half

2 cups freshly grated medium sharp cheddar cheese

1 cup freshly grated Monterey cheese 1/2 Tbsp. salt

1/2 tsp. black pepper

1/4 tsp. smoked paprika

1 package egg roll wraps

1 cup vegetable oil, plus more for egg roll preparation

Hot sauce, for dipping

Instructions

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease 9x13" baking dish. Set aside.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. When boiling, add dried pasta and cook 1 minute less than the package directions, for al dente. Drain and drizzle with a tiny bit of olive oil to keep from sticking.

Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Sprinkle in flour and whisk to combine. Cook for approximately 1 minute, whisking often. Slowly pour in milk and half and half, whisking continuously until smooth.

Continue over medium heat, whisking often, until thickened.

Remove from the heat and stir in salt, pepper, paprika and splash of hot sauce.

In a large bowl, combine the drained pasta with the cheese sauce and pour into prepared baking dish.

Cook for about 20-25 mins.

Remove from oven and let cool about 10 mins.

Heat oil in a large skillet. (I used my cast iron skillet)!

Spoon about a 1/4 cup mac n cheese onto each egg roll wrapper. Dampen edges of egg roll wrapper with vegetable oil.

Roll up according to package directions.

Cover with a damp paper towel until ready to fry.

Repeat with remaining ingredients and make as many as you like.

Brush a tiny bit of vegetable oil on egg rolls.

Fry egg rolls, a few at a time, turning them, until well browned on all sides, about 4 minutes. Place on a plate lined with paper towel to absorb excess grease.

Serve with hot sauce!

Enjoy! 😉
