What You Need

pkg.  (14 oz.) KRAFT Deluxe Macaroni & Cheese Dinner
lb.  ground beef
 RITZ Crackers, finely crushed (about 2 cups), divided
 egg, beaten
oz.  (1/4 of 16-oz. pkg.) VELVEETA®, cut into 32 cubes
 Oil for frying

Make It

PREPARE Dinner in large saucepan as directed on package. Meanwhile, brown meat in skillet; drain.

ADD meat, 1 cup cracker crumbs and egg to Dinner; mix well. Cool 20 min.

SHAPE meat mixture into 32 balls, using scant 1/4 cup for each. Insert 1 VELVEETA cube into center of each ball, completely enclosing VELVEETA cube. Roll in remaining cracker crumbs until evenly coated. Place in single layer on waxed paper-covered baking sheet.

HEAT oil in deep fryer to 375ºF. Add balls, a few at a time; cook 2 min. or until golden brown. Drain well. Mix ketchup and mustard; serve with warm poppers.
