Hello sweet friends – welcome to this week’s Travels in the South. Have you ever heard of macaroni cheese balls?
I had not either… well that is until I found some cool pictures on mom’s i-Phone the other night. She had some interesting pictures and a lot of explaining to do for sure.
Mom and dad went to a local steakhouse and these delights were appetizers. These wonderful balls are of course made with macaroni and then they add some fabulous cheeses – asiago, mozzarella and parmesan cheese.
They roll them in breadcrumbs and then deep fry them for a very short time. They are so cheesey as you can see from dad’s picture.
The restaurant serves the macaroni cheese bits with housemade ranch dressing. Of course dad liked them plain straight up without any additional sauces. He says they hold their own and are awesome all by themselves.
