  • 4 cups cold cooked macaroni and cheese 
  • 2 large eggs 
  • 2 tablespoons milk 
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs 
  • 1/4 cup dry grated Parmesan cheese 
  • 2 teaspoon Italian seasoning 
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder 
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder 
  • 1 teaspoon salt 
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper 
  • Nonstick cooking spray 
  • 1 cup pizza sauce 


  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.  
  2. Form macaroni and cheese into compacted 2 to 3-inch balls. Place on prepared baking sheet and freeze for 30 to 40 minutes. 
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. 
  4. In a medium bowl, combine panko bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper.  
  5. Dip each mac and cheese ball into egg/milk mixture, allowing excess to drip off.  Fully coat in bread crumb mixture. Place back on same baking sheet. 
  6. Lightly spray each mac and cheese ball with nonstick cooking spray. Place a single layer in air fry basket, making sure they do not touch. It will be necessary to cook in batches. Refrigerate any remaining balls until ready to cook.
