  • For the mac and cheese:
  • 150g macaroni
  • 150g mature cheddar, grated
  • 80ml whole milk
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp mustard powder
  • For the bites:
  • 2 eggs
  • 120g breadcrumbs
  • 75g parmesan cheese, grated
  • ½ tsp salt

STEP 1

Cook the macaroni according to the packet instructions. Ideally, you want the macaroni to be a little al dente. Drain and set to one side.

STEP 2

In a pan, combine the milk, garlic powder, mustard powder, and salt. Cook over a high heat, whisking continually. Once it reaches a boil, add the cheese.

STEP 3

As the cheese begins to melt, add the pasta. Keep stirring until the cheese is fully melted.

STEP 4

Pour the mac and cheese into a sealable container and place it in the fridge. It’s best to leave it overnight, but it should be refrigerated for at least 8 hours.

STEP 5

Lightly oil your air fryer basket and preheat to 180 degrees Celsius. Our Retro 6L Air Fryer is not only the perfect size for this recipe but also offers top-end functionality.

STEP 6

Slice up the chilled mac and cheese into small cubes – around 1 inch is a good size.

STEP 7

In a small bowl, whisk up the eggs. On a plate, combine the Parmesan, breadcrumbs, and salt.

STEP 8

Dip each cube of mac and cheese in the egg and then gently roll in the breadcrumb mixture until fully coated.

STEP 9

Place up to 8 bites in your air fryer basket, then fry for 8 minutes. Repeat until all your bites are ready.
