National Mac & Cheese Day Recipe: Creamy Cheddar Mac & Cheese Donuts!

Mac N Cheese Donuts

Holy Mother of Gouda, will you look at that photo? Did you ever imagine that such a thing as a Mac & Cheese Donut even existed? I did not, and yet, there it is. With today (July 14th) being National Mac & Cheese Day, I snagged this recipe for Creamy Cheddar Mac & Cheese Donuts from the website of Three Bridges [www.threebridges.com] — a chef-crafted pasta, sauce, and meal brand that makes clean eating easy. If donuts make you go nuts, this is the dish for you. Breaking the mold, these donuts trade in the sweet for the savory, but don’t be fooled — they’re just as addicting!

Here’s how to make them!

Ingredients:
1-12oz pkg Three Bridges Creamy Cheddar Mac and Cheese Kit
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
2 tbsp butter
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1 egg, beaten

sauces, vegetables, or other toppings of your choice
Instructions:
  1. Prepare Three Bridges Creamy Cheddar Mac n Cheese per directions, let cool.
