Fried Truffled Macaroni and Cheese
Melt butter in a saucepan; combine with flour, and cook over low heat a few minutes to cook out the starchy taste of the flour. Stir in the next ingredients and continue stirring until the mixture thickens. Let simmer for a few minutes, stirring occasionally. Pass through a fine sieve.
Invert set macaroni and cheese onto a cutting board and remove parchment. Gently slice into desired size pieces. Place several pieces in seasoned flour, coat, and remove, tossing carefully to shake off excess flour. Next place pieces in egg wash, then into panko bread crumbs. Coat thoroughly with bread crumbs and remove to baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Repeat process until all pieces are breaded. Place in refrigerator until ready to fry.
Heat deep fryer to 350 degrees F. Fry pieces of macaroni for two minutes or until golden brown crust forms. Remove to pan that allows them to drain, serve hot.
