I noticed that none of your experiences during your mac and cheese adventure involved any sort of dipping sauce. I have personally never put a piece of fried mac and cheese in my mouth without at least a touch of ranch sauce. Just in case you ever happen to get that kitchen of your dreams, there are really great tools to help you find the perfect deep fryer on this site

This is also the recipe I use for my fried mac and cheese:

8 ounces medium or sharp cheddar cheese, grated
2 cups dry elbow macaroni, cooked and drained
1/2 teaspoon table salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon paprika (optional)
3 large fresh eggs (room temperature), beaten
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 tablespoon oil or bacon drippings

Use these ingredients to make the mac and cheese and then form it into little balls once it's cooled a little (if you prefer a loaf, go for it). Then roll it in you favorite bread crumbs ( i use an italian variety) then deep fry til the outside is a golden brown. Dip in ranch and enjoy :)

  • If Ayn Rand and Walter Benjamin got in a cage fight and then made up over foie gras, single malt scotch and indie pop, you'd have the delightful adventures of "That Was Probably Awkward." Plus or minus the single malt and foie gras, depending on the week's finances. But always the indie pop. Sad, stirring indie pop. And a decent happy hour.
