21 #MealPrep Ideas That Are Anything but Boring

Would You Eat This Fried Mac and Cheese?

As soon as I heard that Jack in the Box was debuting these Cheesy Macaroni Bites, I knew I had to try them. Macaroni and cheese is my favorite comfort food, and I love trying the latest flavor of any item to come out of the deep fryer.I almost had a heart attack when I learned what the calories were on this tiny snack, (although it could have been that my arteries were already filling up with saturated fat). Still, the petite wedges — with their gooey, cheesy interior and crispy, golden, battered exterior — were delicious.

In the future, I think I'd have a hard time enjoying them without feeling sharp pangs of guilt. What do you think: Would you be able to enjoy them?

They look really yummy. Sadly the combination of high fat cheese and deep frying = epic fail for the tummy and dosing with immodium.

I've had them, my kids like them, but they are not something I order anymore.. not cheesey enough, and the texture is kinda gluey..

There are two restaurants in my hometown that serve these. I became obsessed with them after I first tasted them. After I moved out of state I craved them often. I was so excited when I saw that our local Jack in the Box serves them.

They have (had? I didn't see it last time I went) this at TGIFRiday's, and oh my lord I could eat the whole thing. Such a guilty pleasure but SO good!

I tried fried mac n cheese when it first appeared at TGI Fridays and really disliked it (which is weird because I LOVE mac n cheese) so it's unlikely that I'd even give this a try. Maybe if someone else had it and said it was really good and offered me a bite.

I would definitely try this. I have a feeling that after a bite I would be content.

omg. a restaurant here in atlanta called Agnes & Muriels has/had great fried mac & cheese. I need to go back to see if they still have it (or are even still open!).

I used to work at the food company that produces these for JIB. Part of our job was Quality Control and we had to fry them up to make sure they were good. Honestly, they didn't appeal to me because I don't usually eat stuff that rich, but they were a huge hit with my coworkers' kids.

We've actually made them ourselves at a friends house that has a deep fryer (we refuse to get one at our house) and they are pure awesomeness on a plate. :)

I'm not above that at all and would totally try them, but sadly I have made the commitment to eating healthier and losing some weight...where the hell were these earlier though? Damnit!

There's a bar that I go to that has this on the menu but I've never ordered it. Maybe I'll have to give it a try.

I've always wanted to try it. They don't sell them ready made anywhere here.
