Kaylee Kidwell


1 cups very small macaroni
⅛ cup unsalted butter
1 cups milk
cup cheddar cheese (shredded)
cup Parmesan cheese
1 cup mozzarella cheese (grated)
Salt and pepper to taste
16 slices provolone, to sandwich
1 cup flour (divided)
1 tablespoon mustard powder
teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon mixed herbs
2 eggs (beaten)
1 cup breadcrumbs
vegetable oil for frying

Prepare macaroni according to the packages directions. Drain the macaroni in a colander and set aside.

Add butter and ⅛ cup flour to a large casserole to to form a roux then steadily add milk, stirring well after each addition until you have a smooth sauce. Bring to a boil stirring constantly then add cheddar, Parmesan, and mozzarella. Stir to combine and then season with salt and pepper to taste. Add the macaroni to the sauce and stir to coat all the pasta in the sauce then remove the casserole from the heat and pour the macaroni into a large baking tray, lined with wax paper. Use a spatula to flatten the top and then refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

Once cooled, use a 4-inch, round, cookie cutter to cut 6-8 macaroni pieces. Sandwich 4 slices of provolone between 2 macaroni pieces. Repeat until all macaroni pieces have been used.

In a large bowl, place remaining flour, mustard powder, cayenne, garlic powder, and mixed herbs and season well with salt and pepper. Place the eggs and breadcrumbs in 2 separate bowls.

Dip each sandwich in flour, then egg, and then finally breadcrumbs, coating evenly.

Preheat oven to 350F.

Place the macaroni sandwich gently in oil and fry 3-4 minutes, until golden brown then remove with spotted spoon and drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Keep warm in a low oven while you fry the remaining sandwiches.
