Tis the season for great food! I love this time of the year, with all the back to back holidays, you can guarantee that the eating will be good! There are so many great recipes I have found on cyber space that I'm so excited to try over the holiday. Over the weekend I got the taste for some fried mac - n- cheese balls. So I headed up to my local Walmart and grabbed everything I needed, including some Kraft Natural Shredded Cheese.

Today, I want to share a easy recipe that you can easily throw together as an appetizer, Fried Mac -n- Cheese Balls. If you like to host gatherings around the holidays this will be the perfect additional to your menu. Plus, my daughter gave me the seal of approval on these so I'm sure you will love them too!
