  • Prepare Dinners in large saucepan as directed on package, omitting half each of the margarine and milk. Add shredded cheese, wieners, flour and 1 egg; mix well. Spread onto foil-covered rimmed baking sheet. Refrigerate 20 min.
  • Whisk remaining eggs and water until blended. Place bread crumbs in shallow bowl. Shape Dinner mixture into 24 balls, using 1/4 cup Dinner mixture for each. Roll, 1 at a time, in eggs then in crumbs. Return to prepared baking sheet. Discard any remaining eggs and bread crumbs.
  • Heat oil in medium saucepan on medium-high heat to 350ºF. Add macaroni and cheese balls, in batches; cook 2 to 3 min. or until golden brown, turning occasionally. Remove from oil with slotted spoon; drain on paper towels.
  • Mix mayo and hot sauce. Serve with warm croquettes.
