Fried Mac and Cheese!

I always make too much mac and cheese! Here's a fun way to use up the leftovers. Makes 8 little rounds.

2 cups cold leftover macaroni and cheese
1/2 cup milk (or gravy...)*
1/2 cup flour
1 Tbsp seasoning salt
Oil for frying

Divide the macaroni and cheese into 8 portions and pack into balls. Place on a cookie sheet and pop in the freezer for 20 minutes.
In a bowl, combine flour and seasoning salt. Get your oil good and hot; it's ready when a tiny sprinkle of flour sizzles. There should be enough to submerge the mac balls.
Remove mac balls from the freezer. Coat each one in milk, then flour mixture. Deep fry for 3-5 minutes, turning as needed, until crispy and golden brown. Remove and place on a rack draped with a paper towel. Cool for a couple minutes.

*You should know that I didn't dip these in milk. I had some leftover gravy that I used instead. It was awesome. So if you have leftover gravy, you can use it instead of milk. This is...not a low-calorie food. ;)
