  • Prepare Dinner in large saucepan as directed on package. Add shredded cheese, flour, Sriracha sauce 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 32 (1-1/2-inch) balls. Roll, 1 at a time, in crumbs, then dip in eggs and roll in crumbs again. Return to prepared baking sheet. Discard any remaining eggs and bread crumbs.
  • Heat oil in medium skillet on medium-high heat. Add croquettes, in batches; cook 2 to 3 min. or until golden brown, turning occasionally. Remove from skillet with slotted spoon; drain on paper towels. Serve warm.


Add more or less Sriracha sauce according to your family's taste preference.

How to Keep the Croquettes Warm

Place cooked croquettes in single layer on large ovenproof plate or tray; cover loosely with foil. Place in oven set at the WARM setting for up to 30 min. before serving.

    Lackluster flavor, they fell apart, were extremely messy and sopped up too much of the oil. Gross!

    Did not see a benefit to dipping the mac & cheese and frying it. Very difficult to make into a ball and end result is dry. Just make the mac & cheese with the cayenne pepper and eat it without frying.

    You can make these ahead of time & avoid a mess. They won't fall apart & here is the trick! Cut up squares of plastic wrap, place a spoonful in each square, wrap it up, toss in freezer. (I'll admit I just plop spoonfuls in a mini muffin tin. Why waste wrap?). After an hour or even next day dip these babies in the egg & crumbs and you're good to go! I even use extra cheese!
